Reuben Foster of the San Francisco 49ers has been named the “Defensive Rookie of the Month” by the NFL.
The rookie linebacker was out for six games with an ankle injury, but returned with a team-high 30 tackles, three tackles for loss, and three quarterback hits in three November games.
The 49ers website says that currently, he ranks fifth among NFL linebackers in terms of overall grade.
Foster is the fifth member of the 49ers to become the “Defensive Rookie of the Month,” following Patrick Willis, Aldon Smith, Chris Borland, and Andre Carter.
