NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at San Francisco 49ers Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL announced today that Redskins LB Reuben Foster will be fined two games, but will not face any suspension for his domestic violence arrest last year. All charges were dropped in this case. Foster was on the NFL Commissioner's Exempt List and missed the final 5 games of the 2018 sesson. The 49ers released Foster after the incident occurred at the team's hotel. The Redskins claimed him on waiver's in hopes of acquiring the talented young linebacker.

The Redskins could use Foster this year after cutting starter Zach Brown last month. The Redskins tried to trade both Beown and Mason Foster, but were unsuccessful. Foster was retained as cheaper depth, and the Redskins will give more playing time to another Alabama alum, Shaun Dion-Hamilton.

Statement from Redskins Team President Bruce Allen and Reuben Foster:
