Reuben Foster Redskins

Washington Redskins' linebacker Reuben Foster suffered an injury to his left leg early in the team's organized team activity workout Monday

ASHBURN -- Washington Redskins inside linebacker Reuben Foster apparently is out for the season after suffering an injury to his left leg early in the team's organized team activity workout  Monday.

Ian Rappaport of the NFL Network and, citing unnamed sources, said Foster is "believed" to have a torn ACL, "plus additional damage." Adam Schefter of ESPN, also citing sources, said Foster has a torn ACL.

Film from NBC Sports Redskins showed Foster on the ground, pounding his fists to the grass. He seemed to be in considerable pain. Athletic trainers stabilized the leg, Foster left the field on the back of a golf cart and had an MRI exam Monday afternoon.

"We’ve had some bad luck over here the last couple of years, but this one takes the cake." Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. "This was a non-contact drill. He just landed funny.

"I don’t know how to process it, really."

The Redskins claimed Foster after he was released by San Francisco late last season following a domestic violence charge.

The charge was dismissed, and Foster was cleared, at the price of two regular-season game checks, to play in 2019 by the NFL.
