Redskins linebacker Reuben Foster will undergo an MRI on his injured left leg after being carted off the field at practice Monday.

Foster was running through a gap along the offensive line when he stepped on guard Tyler Catalina's foot and "landed funny on his left leg," Gruden says.

CONFIRMED: Foster Suffers Season-Ending ACL Tear

Gruden didn't have much to offer about Foster's injury when speaking to reporters after practice, although he did confirm Foster will have an MRI and other tests done.

When a reporter noted a player being carted off the field doesn't typically yield good news, Gruden said, "Yeah, especially Reuben's... the type of player that he is, the energy that he brings, he wouldn't be laying down unless something was wrong."

"But we'll hope for the best right now until we get the results," he added. "But very concerning for sure. Yeah. So I'll just have to wait and see before I get too emotional about it."

The Redskins have yet to hear back from the league office on safety Montae Nicholson, whose Dec. 2018 arrest in Loudoun County resulted in misdemeanor assault and public intoxication charges. All charges stemming from that arrest were dropped last week due to insufficient evidence.
