San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Reuben Foster, a first-round selection in the 2017 NFL draft, won't play Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks as he battles a high ankle issue.

X-rays for the linebacker's ankle came back negative earlier this week, though he was diagnosed with the sprain after playing just 12 snaps in the 49ers' season opener.

Foster, the 31st overall pick in this year's draft, was expected to be a bright spot for the 49ers' defense this season, quickly racking up three tackles in his short debut. Ray-Ray Armstrong will likely take Foster’s spot in the starting defense against Seattle.
