Reuben Foster Comments On Being Sent Home From NFL Combine

Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster went on Instagram Live to respond to the report that he was sent home from the NFL combine after an argument with a hospital worker.

On Friday, reports emerged that Foster got into a heated exchange with a hospital worker in Indianapolis, whom he felt mistreated him during medical testing for the combine.

Foster broadcast on Instagram live, where he spoke about the issue to his followers for approximately 30 minutes, and didn't seem overly concerned about the whole ordeal. From AL.com:

"Y'all, stop asking me what happened, for real," Foster said on the video. "Nothing happened."

[...]

"Talk to Tim (Williams)," Foster said, referencing his Alabama teammate who would have been in the same group for medical evaluations. "Talk to Ryan (Anderson). Talk to Dalvin (Tomlinson). Them boys know. They were there."

A number of the players he mentioned said that they didn't see the incident, or weren't in the room with Foster at the time, per the AP.

Foster is a potential early first round pick, and he has time to satiate the concerns of NFL teams between now and the NFL Draft, but the weekend definitely wasn't optimal for his draft stock.
