Reuben Foster among prospects getting medical rechecks in Indianapolis

Linebacker Reuben Foster’s first visit for a medical evaluation in Indianapolis this year didn’t go as expected.

Foster was sent home from the Scouting Combine after what was described a “heated argument” with a hospital worker while waiting for his medical evaluation. Foster missed interviews with 16 teams as a result and later sent a letter to NFL teams apologizing for that and telling them that he would discuss the incident if so desired later in the pre-draft process.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Foster will get another chance to get a full workup this week during the medical re-checks in Indianapolis. Foster would likely be there even if things had gone as planned in March because he had shoulder surgery this offseason. Per Rapoport, Foster has full range of motion in his shoulder.

The Alabama linebacker will have company in Indy. Washington wide receiver John Ross, Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis, UCLA defensive end Takkarist McKinley, Michigan tight end Jake Butt and Wisconsin tackle Ryan Ramczyk are also due for check-ups. Washington cornerback Sidney Jones will send in scans of the Achilles injury he suffered at his pro day workout.

    First glance at the headline I thought he was getting medical rednecks. Where’s my coffee?

    I hope he gets the same hospital worker…

    Is it really a recheck if he never got checked to begin with?

    Can teams do a brain check? PASS

    Bet he wishes he would have sat his butt down and waited. I’m sure the wait would’ve been a lot less than the time it takes to fly back into and back out of Indy.

    Who knows? The hospital worker could’ve been a real jerk. It’s not like it would be the first time.

    Time will tell, but after reading about the incident during the scouting combine my second thought (my first was this guy is a dope) was he is a hot head who will lose his cool on the field and pick up costly unsportman-like penalties.

    For heavy users, it takes 30-45 days (sometimes more) for weed usage to go undetected after quitting cold turkey. The timing on his “recheck” is, well, just about right. Wink, wink.

    I hope the hospital puts him in a waiting room with 1000 other people and they all go before him.

    “Mr. Foster, have a seat please. You’ll be the last patient we’ll see today. Please control yourself this time”

    have any of you commenting seen Reuben Foster play? yes he is a mean sob that will knock your head off, which is exactly the type of dude you need manning the middle of your defense. good luck to Foster on the re-check and I can’t wait to see this guy play on Sundays, even more if he has that Star on his helmet next fall.
