AP: Star Alabama Player Out of the NFL Combine

Mar 4, 2017

Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster has been sent home from the NFL combine, according to sources including the Associated Press. The Dick Butkus Award winner reportedly had an heated argument with a doctor before interviews with the teams were to begin. Foster suffered injuries toward the end of his career with the Alabama Crimson Tide, including surgery on his rotator cuff. That operation was to have kept him out of on-field drills at the combine. Foster is widely considered the best inside linebacker coming out of college, with five sacks and over one hundred tackles.
