The Redskins officially placed linebacker Reuben Foster on the Injured Reserve with a torn ACL and additional damage in his left leg on Wednesday.

The Redskins also announced the signing of free agent Jon Bostic, a 28-year-old linebacker who's played for four teams, most recently the Steelers in 2018. A second-round pick in 2013 (Bears), Bostic registered 46 total tackles, five tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks last season.
