Alabama star and potential top-10 draft pick Reuben Foster was sent home early from the NFL combine on Friday night after getting into what was described as “a heated argument” with a hospital worker. Very early on Saturday morning, more details about the incident emerged, per Robert Klemko of The MMQB. 

(Bryan Broaddus of notes that Foster likely had a long day waiting for his MRI.)

Foster was told to leave as a result of the exchange and did not participate in team interviews on Friday evening. As our Adam Silverstein noted on Friday night, Foster will miss additional team meetings and psychological testing as well as the bench press and on-field workout portions of the combine, though he was not expected to participate in physical activities due to recent rotator cuff surgery. 

He will presumably meet with teams at Alabama’s Pro Day, which takes place on Wednesday, March 8. Foster is rated as the No. 1 inside linebacker and No. 7 overall player in the 2017 draft class, according to CBS Sports and, but his conduct at the combine could send him tumbling down the draft board if he does not come up with an adequate explanation when he meets with NFL teams.
