If there's an organization willing to take on the black cloud hovering over the Redskins organization, Bruce Allen and company would appreciate it if they'd hurry up and stand up. Washington began their preparation for the 2019 season on Monday, with the first day of organized team activities. It's the first opportunity for the coaching staff to work with the full roster they will have over the summer, minus the handful of veterans who do not attend the voluntary workouts. Just as soon as things began though, things took a turn for bad.
Reuben Foster, signed mid-2018 and penciled in to be the straw that stirs the drink that is an up-and-coming defense, was injured early and had to be carted off. NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay was the first to report.
Foster doesn't have the best track record with injuries since joining the league in 2017. He missed five games early in his rookie season due to a high-ankle sprain and suffered a chest bruise that year. In 2018, he missed three games with a hamstring injury before being released following an arrest over a claim of domestic violence. His girlfriend rescinded the claims, the charges were dropped and the NFL announced there would be no suspension.
