Redskins claim Reuben Foster off waivers from 49ers

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have claimed Reuben Foster off waivers after the San Francisco 49ers released the linebacker following a domestic violence arrest.

The Redskins announced the move Tuesday in a statement acknowledging they "fully understand the severity of the recent allegations made against Reuben."

They say Foster will have to go through the full legal process, investigation and potential discipline from the NFL and meetings with team counselors before he'll have the opportunity to play in a game.

The team says conversations with ex-Alabama teammates led to the decision to claim Foster and that nothing is promised to him.

It was not immediately clear if or when Foster would report to the team's facility. Foster was arrested Saturday night for an incident at the 49ers' team hotel in Tampa, and he was released the next morning before their game against the Buccaneers.
