SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Reuben Foster took little time at all in what was likely his final preseason game to show once again why the San Francisco 49ers were so happy to draft him in April.

Minnesota rookie running back Dalvin Cook took a swing pass from Sam Bradford and was immediately met by Foster , who read the play perfectly and flattened Cook for a 5-yard loss that set the tone Sunday for San Francisco.

“The first play was real neat,” coach Kyle Shanahan said. “That’s usually the one I see the best is the first play of the game.”
