"Even when I called the police, the 49ers came up there", Ennis said. A confrontation between Foster and Ennis turned physical when Foster allegedly slapped Ennis' phone out of her hand, pushed her and slapped her in the face, ABC News reported, citing an arrest affidavit. "Officers observed a one-inch scratch on the victim's left collarbone". He was later released on $2,000 bail. Pointer also took part in the "Good Morning America" interview.

Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen said in a statement released Thursday that his office is exploring legal options in light of Ennis' new claims.

"We both were seeing therapists and stuff, trying to work on our relationship", she said. "So I was like, "I can't believe you - you're back to doin' this'".

But Sharpe continued: "What this move tells me is they view what Kaepernick did as a more egregious act than what Foster allegedly has done". He was the team's first-round draft pick in 2017.

San Francisco didn't release Foster at the time because they were made aware of Ennis' decision.

Ennis had previously accused Foster of domestic violence in February.

Reuben Foster's ex-girlfriend now says she was lying on the witness stand when she told a Santa Clara County judge in May that she fabricated domestic violence charges against the linebacker.

Foster was initially charged in April in Santa Clara, Calif., with felonies for domestic violence, making criminal threats and weapons possession stemming from an alleged attack on Ennis.

She later added, "I did what I had to do for the person I love. I thought that he would change". However, she later recanted her story.

"Reuben threw my clothes off the balcony", Ennis said of the Los Gatos incident. He punched me in my face two, three times. The cycle of domestic violence is frightening and frighteningly powerful.

The 49ers have not commented on Ennis' claims.

Doug Williams, senior vice president for player personnel, infuriated the industry the next day when, in a radio interview, he described the allegations against Foster as "small potatoes" compared to people in 'high, high, high, high places that have done far worse'.

Ennis said that she's now realized, after receiving professional help, that her relationship with Foster was not love and that she's working on getting closure. But when asked about her explanation for recanting those allegations, she said, "I was not telling the truth" about the reason she provided. The 49ers were preparing for a road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"The 49ers fully cooperated with authorities, assisted in locating Mr. Upon hearing of the incident, we immediately begin an investigation that will be thorough and comprehensive to understand the facts of the matter", the National Football League statement read.

Speaking on Fox Sports, Sharpe questioned why the Redskins were "willing to give Reuben Foster an opportunity but they are not willing to bring Colin Kaepernick in and give him a workout".
