Monday was only the first day of OTAs, but the injury bug is already biting the Redskins.

Linebacker Reuben Foster was carted off the field with a leg injury after the third snap of 11 vs. 11 play. Per Craig Hoffman, Foster "went to defend a bootleg and let out a yelp and immediately grabbed his knee in tremendous pain."

"It's far too early to know just how bad it is, but it's bad," Hoffman told Grant & Danny Monday. "His reaction said that it was something serious and painful, and for that to happen on the third play of OTAs is pretty remarkable."

"Clearly, the minds of this organization are with their inside linebacker right now who went down with what might be a fairly catastrophic injury here in the first team session of the spring."

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Foster is undergoing an MRI on his knee to determine the severity of the injury. 

The Redskins controversially claimed Foster off waivers from the 49ers in November. Foster had been arrested on a domestic violence charge just days prior, a charge which was ulimately dropped. The NFL fined Foster but did not suspend him, clearing the way for Foster to play on the Redskins this season.
