Reuben Foster Sent Home From NFL Combine After Argument

Reuben Foster Sent Home From NFL Combine After Argument

He is a highly regarded prospect and has appeared as a top-10 pick in many mock drafts.

Linebacker Reuben Foster was Alabama's leading tackler last season.

Alabama linebacker and projected first-round pick Reuben Foster left the NFL Scouting Combine early on Saturday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported per a source briefed on his situation late Friday night. Foster was scheduled to workout on Sunday and meet with teams over the next two days, but that has obviously changed.

The expulsion from the NFL's annual combine for incoming rookies, held each year in Indianapolis, obviously could hurt Foster's stock ahead of next month's National Football League draft in Philadelphia.

One thing that does not help his case is the fact that Foster plays a position that not many teams will value at the top of the draft.

Foster won the Butkus Award in 2016 as the nation's top linebacker.

Even what little Foster managed to accomplish at the combine reportedly didn't go well for him, with Bleacher Report's Matt Miller passing along word that the "interviews were bad for Foster this week".

It remains to be seen as to what actually transpired with Foster and what a "heated argument with a hospital worker" entails, but this type of exposure is never a good thing.
