Redskins’ Reuben Foster Suffers Injury

Linebacker Reuben Foster was carted off of the Redskins’ practice field with an air cast on his left leg, as Mike Garafolo of NFL.com tweets. Nothing is certain yet, but the air cast/cart combo suggests that this is a very serious injury and a likely season-ender. 

Foster was seen slamming the turf in agony and sobbing while being driven off of the field. The linebacker, who escaped suspension for his latest round of domestic violence accusations, is now unlikely to see the field in 2019 for his new team.

Foster, a 2017 first-round pick, is among the most talented linebackers in the NFL. He’s also one of the league’s most controversial players due to his off-the-field transgressions. Foster was accused of roughing up his ex-girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, in February of 2018. Ennis went on to recant that story, but, in November, she alleged Foster of abusing her once again at the 49ers’ team hotel in Florida. The Niners dropped him soon after and the Redskins shocked many in the football world by claiming him off waivers.

The remaining guarantees in Foster’s contract have been voided due to his off-the-field transgressions, but the Redskins will be responsible for his salary if/when he is placed on IR.

        Typical Skins luck, Snyder luck they call it. If it wasn’t for bad luck he wouldn’t have any luck at all!

    • So far it looks like Foster mainly has bad choice in women, particularly this one, who is a real typhoon of danger. It’s not the first time she’s been in trouble for false accusations of domestic violence.

    Great news. Does what the league wouldn’t, keep him off the field for a long time.

    i know its a bad take to be glad to see someone get hurt and have their season end before it even begins, but i have to be honest, im kind of glad to see foster wont be able to contribute to washington this year. i dont like that the niners who gave foster 3 or 4 chances before basically having no choice but to cut ties with him, get punished while then immediately another team gets to reap the benefits. i believe in getting another shot but similar with kareem hunt, i really dont want to see the browns reap the benefits this year because the chiefs had no choice but to cut him. so i wouldnt mind seeing foster bounce back next year but glad the niners dont look bad for doing the right thing and cutting him this year
