The Redskins were hoping to count on Reuben Foster this year as a starting linebacker but that may now be in jeopardy as he suffered a leg or knee injury today in OTA’s. The injury and severity is unknown at this time but it looks to be significant. This story will be updated.

He went to defend a bootleg and let out a yelp and immediately grabbed his knee in tremendous pain. Foster is still on the ground holding his head in disbelief over five minutes later. They’re preparing him to be carted off.
