Redskins LB Reuben Foster Believed To Have Torn ACL, Additional Damage


Ian Rapoport reports that Redskins LB Reuben Foster is believed to have suffered a torn ACL, plus additional damage.

According to Rapoport, Foster’s knee injury has been described as “major and significant.” He’s currently visiting specialists to determine the full extent of the injury. 

Either way, it doesn’t sound good for Foster. 

Foster went down with the injury near the beginning of team drills during OTA’s and immediately grabbed his left knee. He was seen in tears and later carted off with an aircast/brace on his leg.

The NFL announced a few weeks ago that Foster will be fined two game checks, but not suspended

The third-year linebacker has had multiple off-the-field issues since entering the NFL including a second-degree marijuana possession and a domestic violence incident involving his ex-girlfriend, who later recanted the allegations against him. The charges were dropped after the judge found no other evidence to support the charges.

Foster, 25, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2017. The 49ers waived him last year and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins. 

Foster is in the third year of his four-year, $9.03 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1.28 million for the 2019 season. The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Redskins to pick up in 2020.

In 2018, Foster appeared in six games for the 49ers and recorded 29 tackles and a pass defense.
