The Washington Redskins continue to get bad press for claiming former San Francisco 49ers LB Reuben Foster after his arrest for domestic violence. Doug Williams had to apologize for comments he made on the radio discussing the controversial move. Bruce Allen gave an off air interview for Monday Night Football that talked about the team conducting it's own investigation. That investigation did not involve talking to police in Tampa, or to the accuser.
Foster's alleged victim and ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis was interviewed by ABC and discussed the current accusations of abuse at the 49ers team hotel that led to him being arrested and released by the team. She also talked about previous accusations that she recanted in court, and why she lied to protect Foster. Ennis described the abuse in detail, and mentioned another incident where the police were called by neighbors.

Reuben Foster is not appealing Roger Goodell's decision to place him on the NFL Commissioner's Exempt List while his legal troubles are ongoing.
Foster’s decision to not appeal his placement on the exempt list neither disappoints nor surprises the Redskins, who claimed the former first-round draft pick with the sole idea that he could be a linchpin on their defense next season -- not this season, according to a source.
This case will obviously have to play out in court, and Reuben Foster will have his chance to defend himself from these horrible accusations. The Redskins are still being judged in the court of public opinion, and this will continue until this case is resolved. Foster's next court date is scheduled for January 3rd.
