Former 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was claimed off waivers by the Redskins on Tuesday days after he was cut by San Francisco following a weekend arrest in Tampa, Florida, on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence battery, Washington announced.
Foster, however, will not be permitted to practice or play in games for the Redskins as the NFL placed him on the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List while the league reviews his arrest.
A police report obtained by NFL.com from the Hillsborough County Sheriffs office Sunday morning stated Foster was booked into jail at 11:11 p.m. ET on a first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
Redskins senior VP of player personnel Doug Williams released a statement on Foster saying the team fully the severity of the recent allegations made against Reuben.
The Redskins had eight players from Alabama on their roster before claiming Foster.
