Ex-Alabama LB Reuben Foster booted from NFL combine

Ex-Alabama LB Reuben Foster booted from NFL combine

Former Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker Reuben Foster, a potential top-10 pick in next month's NFL draft, is being sent home from the Indianapolis scouting combine for a "heated altercation" he got into Friday with a hospital worker, according to multiple sources.

All one NFL spokesman would say was that Foster was being sent home for "personal reasons." He did not want to comment further.

Foster, the top-graded inside linebacker for many teams, was scheduled to go through team interviews on Friday night and testing on Saturday, none of which will happen now, according to sources. Foster is scheduled to fly home to Tuscaloosa on Saturday.

NFL officials are reviewing the procedures that contributed to the incident to see if they can make improvements and ensure it doesn't happen again, per league sources.

Another league source said there was a "miscommunication" that allowed the argument between Foster and a hospital worker to escalate.

Foster had been waiting for an extended period for what the NFL calls his "pre-exam", when he grew increasingly impatient and began questioning a hospital worker.

The hospital worker did not take kindly to Foster's words and eventually the two were face to face, in a heated exchange.
