Redskins LB Reuben Foster Carted Off With Left Leg Injury


According to ESPN’s John Keim, Redskins LB Reuben Foster was carted off “in tears” with what looked like a left leg injury. Reports mentioned that Foster had an aircast on his leg as he was taken away on a cart. 

Foster was pushed to the turf near the beginning of team drills during OTA’s and immediately grabbed his left knee, per Rhiannon Walker.

The Redskins had previously thought they would have Foster’s services for the 2019 season after the league announced he would be fined two game checks, but not suspended

Foster was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list shortly after he was claimed by the Redskins.

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.
