Foster was a 16-game starter in 2018, piling up a team-high 133 tackles while playing 98.2 percent of the defensive snaps.
Foster did add two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and a sack, but he's a tackle compiler more so than a true playmaker at inside linebacker. He should be back in 2019 for the second season of a two-year, $4 million contract, but it won't come as a huge surprise if Washington tries to find a replacement for his every-down role, potentially seeking a linebacker with better coverage skills.
Foster tallied nine tackles (four solo), one sack, and one pass breakup during Saturday's loss to Tennessee.
Foster arguably put together his best performance of the season, despite not getting to double-digit tackles like he's done on six occasions in 2018. However, he's recorded just 2.5 sacks over the past five seasons and has gotten his hands on just four passes this year, so don't expect another multi-category stat line when the Redskins take on the Eagles in Week 17.
Foster recorded six tackles (four solo) and an interception during Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants.
While Eli Manning diced up the Redskins defense for three touchdowns on just 14 completions, it wasn't until he was replaced by backup Kyle Lauletta that Washington was able to look halfway decent on the defensive end. Foster picked off Lauletta to earn his second interception of the year, both of which have come in the last four weeks. The Redskins will look to get back on track against the Jaguars on Sunday.
Foster recorded 10 tackles (nine solo), an interception, and a fumble recovery in Sunday's loss to the Texans.
Foster has piled up tackles this season, recording 10 or more in six games thus far. His interception and fumble recovery made Sunday his best game of the year. He'll look to continue his quality play as the Redskins take on the Cowboys in Week 12.
Foster recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.
Foster and the Redskins' defense played well Sunday, holding the Buccaneers to just three points. Foster is on pace for a career-high in tackles for a season, so long as he can remain healthy. Looking ahead, Foster and the Redskins will take on the Texans in Week 11.
