There were reports that some NFL teams believed linebacker Reuben Foster would require surgery before ever playing in an NFL game. On Sunday, Foster will play his ninth game of his rookie season and he said he will not need any kind of offseason surgery on his right shoulder. Foster said his offseason will consist of work with Ray Wright, the team’s strength and conditioning coach, and following the direction of head athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson. “No procedure, just listen to the strength and conditioning coach and really train and just listen to Ferg and do what they ask me to do,” Foster said. Foster, whom the 49ers chose with the No. 31 overall pick, missed five games early in the season due to a high ankle sprain. He missed another game due to a ribs injury.
