The San Francisco 49ers are going to take "considerable time" to deliberate the future of linebacker Reuben Foster after his arrest Sunday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday: 

The San Francisco Chronicle's Sarah Ravani and Eric Branch reported authorities arrested Foster on charges of "domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon."

According to Rapoport, Foster met with 49ers team officials Monday to discuss what happened leading up to the arrest.

The 49ers released a statement Sunday after Foster's arrest, per's Nick Wagoner: "The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the report regarding Reuben Foster. We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information."

An NFL spokesman also told NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco the league will "look into the matter."

The Bay Area News Group's Robert Salonga and Cam Inman reported Foster's girlfriend told police he "physically dragged" her while they were having an argument. She alleged Foster "threw her belongings onto a front walkway and balcony" as well.

Foster was also arrested in Alabama in January on a charge of marijuana possession. He was released on $2,500 bond.

The 49ers selected Foster with the 31st overall pick in the 2017 draft. He appeared in 10 games, making 72 combined tackles.
