Reuben Foster Suffers Knee Injury

Washington Redskins linebacker Reuben Foster was carted off the field with a knee injury during the team’s organized team activity on Monday. What does this mean for the Reuben Foster injury?

The injury occurred during the third snap of the practice session.

Foster, who was picked up by the team after getting released by the San Francisco 49ers last season, was expected to be a significant contributor on the defensive end. With the injury he suffered on Monday, he might be forced to miss the entire 2019 season. Or most of the season.

“He’s going to get his MRI. Also, all the tests he has to do.” head coach Jay Gruden told reporters Monday afternoon. “We don’t have any information right now. He just ran through a gap. Stepped on [Tyler] Catalina’s foot. Ten landed funny on his left leg. We’re getting it checked out now.”

After Foster went to the ground, he was immediately surrounded by team officials including president Bruce Allen and Gruden. Landon Collins, his former teammate at Alabama, also joined the team officials and knelt next to Foster, who appeared to be in a significant amount of pain.

With Foster out for the foreseeable future, the Redskins will have to find someone to replace him. The team had been planning to start him as an inside linebacker because of his speed and athleticism, but with the team being thin at the position, they will likely turn to veteran linebacker Mason Foster, who can play both the inside and outside linebacker positions.

Foster has been dealing with injuries and off the field problems since he was selected with the 31st pick of the 2017 NFL Draft by the 49ers.

He suffered an ankle injury that forced him to miss five games. He was suspended for the first two games of the 2018 season. This because of a weapons charge. Also, he was suspended for the rest of the 2018 season after being charged with domestic violence. Bad, to worse.

In conclusion, the Reuben Foster injury will be a major setback. The Redskins need to desperately sign another free agent.
