After a flurry of tweets criticizing the Redskins front office during the last 24 hours, Mason Foster met with Bruce Allen Saturday morning to clear the air.
"It's all good now," Foster said on Saturday.
The situation bubbled up Friday afternoon when the Redskins announced Foster would move to the injured reserve due to a torn labrum. Foster had been playing through the injury since a Week 2 win in Los Angeles.
Friday night and Saturday morning Foster tweeted a number of different times voicing anger and disappointment in the move to IR. After all, the linebacker had played through the injury the last three games and produced. Against Philadelphia last Monday night, Foster logged six tackles and half a sack.
"It was one of those things where you get put on IR," Foster explained. "I was just Twitter ranting."
Foster explained that he should have talked to Allen before his Twitter rant, and that he apologized to the Redskins team president. Allen too offered an apology, per Foster, and explained that he should have sought out the player to explain the situation.
Playing with Tampa earlier in his career, Foster suffered a similar injury. He gutted through games playing hurt, and then the Bucs cut him.
"I pretty much went through the same thing in Tampa. They let me go, they didn't sign me back after they had me play through a shoulder injury," Foster said. "That was my biggest fear. I didn't want that to happen now."

Allen told Foster "we don't see you as that type of guy."
Foster said that Allen explained, "We're not on that 'use you until you can't go no more. We just want you to get healthy. We want what's best for you.'"
After speaking with Allen and others in the Washington front office, Foster feels much better about his situation with the team.
He is scheduled to hit free agency after the season, and the move to IR will cost Foster some money. His contract had multiple trigger points for playing time incentives, but with the move to IR, that won't happen this season.
In three seasons with the Redskins, Foster has been a productive linebacker. Fans have come to love the emotional player, and he's one of the more responsive players on social media.
After the Twitter outburst, Foster is ready to turn the page.
"It was me being emotional. I love to play football, they took it away from me. I should have handled the situation a different way," he said. "I feel like we're in a good place now."
