Foster has held promise since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2016, but he was active just 10 times in his first two seasons before tearing his ACL in August and missing the entire 2018 campaign. Assuming his rehab goes as planned, he may have a tough time supplanting those above him on the depth chart in Arizona, namely David Johnson, Chase Edmonds and T.J. Logan.
After playing 10 games for the Patriots and Cardinals over the previous two years, Foster made his case for a spot on Arizona's 53-man roster during training camp in 2018, but he then tore his ACL in the third week of the preseason. He's now scheduled to become a restricted free agent and said he hopes to stay with the Cardinals under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Foster's background as a part-time wide receiver in college could make him useful as a backup to David Johnson, with Kingsbury coming from a pass-happy background at Texas Tech. Of course, the 25-year-old will still need to battle for a roster spot once he regains his health, as the Cardinals have other depth options in the form of Chase Edmonds, T.J. Logan and Brandon Wilds.
Foster sustained a knee injury and will not return to Sunday's preseason game against the Cowboys.
The extent of Foster's injury has yet to be confirmed. In his absence, T.J. Logan and Sherman Badie could see extra reps out of the backfield.
