Rapoport added the outrage is considered “major and significant.” The linebacker will see specialists to determine the full extent of the slight.
Foster suffered the slighted after getting pushed to the sports arena during the first day of Redskins OTAs on the subject of Monday, per incorporation reporters at practice. Trainers, along to the lead coach Jay Gruden and GM Bruce Allen, tended to the linebacker yet to be he was carted off the arena behind an tune cast upon his leg, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported.
Gruden told reporters that Foster was going to undergo an MRI subsequent to Monday.
The Redskins claimed the intelligent but frightened linebacker off of waivers last season after he was waived by the San Francisco 49ers. The NFL announced last month that Foster would be fined two game checks but not suspended for his latest off-showground incident.
Foster’s slight could sideline him for the entirety of the 2019 season. However, there is precedent for a artist to reward from this type of insult suffered at this epoch of the year.
