Washington placed Foster (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

The transaction was a foregone conclusion after Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Foster suffered a torn ACL during a freak fall at Monday's practice. The fact Washington is placing Foster on IR right away rather than the Physically Unable to Perform list doesn't bode well for the young linebacker's chances of eventually making his way back on the field in 2019. Washington signed Jon Bostic on Wednesday to take Foster's place on the roster, but Shaun Dion Hamilton, Josh Harvey-Clemons and Cole Holcomb could also make a case for snaps at inside linebacker alongside Mason Foster. It's expected that Foster will undergo surgery on his left knee once the swelling subsides.
