Derrius Guice injured his knee in August and has been working out at Redskins Park for months to get ready for the 2019 season. And now he has a new workout partner.
In the picture with Guice is Reuben Foster, the linebacker the Redskins claimed off waivers last week after he was released from San Francisco. The 49ers released Foster after he was arrested for domestic violence in a Tampa hotel incident two weeks ago, his second domestic violence arrest this year.
The NFL placed Foster on the Commission Exempt list in the hours after the Redskins claimed him off waivers. That means he can't practice or play for the Redskins, but it doesn't completely preclude him from being in the facility.
The reaction to Foster's signing came swift and furious against the Redskins, and on Thursday morning, his accuser told the story of their most recent encounter.
It's unclear if Foster will ever play for the Redskins, as the team has repeatedly said if the charges are true he will not suit up in Burgundy and Gold. Bruce Allen told ESPN that the Redskins did their own investigation into the incident but will let things play out in court and by the league before the team makes any decisions.
Foster was a first-round pick in 2017 by the 49ers after a stellar career at the University of Alabama. He slipped nearly out of the first round after failing a pre-draft drug test and having an altercation with a hospital worker during the NFL Scouting Combine.
