As he heads to injured reserve, Mason Foster is unhappy with Washington’s front office

Washington linebacker Mason Foster is going on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, and he’s not happy with the team.

In a string of early-morning tweets, Foster didn’t explain exactly what he’s upset about, but he made clear that he thinks he was “done dirty” by Washington’s front office. He also suggested that he’s been treated worse by the team since the firing of former General Manager Scot McCloughan.

“All I know is Scot wouldn’t have done me like that,” Foster wrote.

Foster said he has been playing hurt and doesn’t think the team respects that.

“I have played 3 weeks with a completely torn labrum,” Foster wrote. “Lay everything on the line for someone just to have that same person slap you in the face. Business is business tho right. They don’t care about us.”

Foster didn’t name who, exactly, he’s unhappy with, but he seemed to be suggesting that team president Bruce Allen is the one who did him dirty. Foster becomes a free agent after the season, and these tweets suggest he’ll be heading elsewhere next year.

  1. If he has a torn labrum, that’s a very serious injury. Seems to me the REDSKINS are doing him a solid.. I mean he still gets paid right?

  2. I’m wondering what he’s upset about?
    But it’s never productive to air these things on your twitter
    I can assure him, however, he isn’t the only one who’s unhappy with the front office, that much is certain.

  3. He might be upset with Jay Gruden. Gruden said some surprising things yesterday that this was a “pain tolerance” issue and Foster just couldn’t bear the pain.

  4. Fire Allen. Rehire McCloughan. It ain’t going to happen, but it should. It would be met with open arms with fans, players and probably coaches too.

  5. “…Business is business tho right. They don’t care about us.”

    He answered his own problem. Obviously not that bright.

  6. So the team doesn’t want to get sued for negligence for continuing to let him play through a torn labrum.

    They actually want him to go get healthy.

    Oh the horror!

  7. Bonus $ in the contract for playing time, perhaps?
    I get it, but if you make yourself far & away the best on the roster & leave no doubt they’re better with you on the field than without you, you’ll be on the field. Don’t try & make this a Shaun Alexander situation in week 7, it isn’t.

  8. They should have put him on reserve when they found out about the injury. Instead they said they were making a playoff run and needed him and he played 3 weeks (shortening his career in the process) and then they send him to reserve.

  9. Putting him on injured reserve to protect him and paying him to do nothing the rest of the year. Yeah that’s real dirty.

    Mason’s contract was structure with playing time incentives. It’s not beyond the realm of possibility he may have been led to believe if he sucked it up a bit some of them may have been considered met, Allen has done others worse than that in the past.

  11. Mason is a great Redskin with a nose for the ball & a knack for big plays in late game situations. It’s a loss for the team if he’s on IR. Sucks the FO doesn’t know how to make their hardest working players feel appreciated though…
