Article here. Excerpt:

'San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster's former girlfriend released a statement Wednesday saying she initially lied to police about him injuring her in a February incident at his home in Los Gatos, California.

The statement from San Jose attorney Stephanie Rickard, who identified her client in the statement as 28-year-old Elissa Ennis, said Ennis suffered her injuries as the result of a fight with another woman and there is video documentation of that fight.

"[Foster] did not strike her, injure her or threaten her," Rickard said.

According to the statement, Foster attempted to end their relationship after learning of the fight between Ennis and another woman.

"She was extremely upset and told him if he broke up with her, she would 'trash his career,'" Rickard said.'
