by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (concussion) does not carry an injury tag for Thursday's divisional tilt against Cleveland, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.

Foster sat out Pittsburgh's last two contests due to a lingering head injury, but he's now managed to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol. The 33-year-old veteran is on track to draw his usual start at left guard versus the Browns on Thursday.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Foster will miss his second straight game after entering the concussion protocol prior to Week 9. Matt Feiler, the Steelers' usual right tackle, will slide over to left guard in Foster's stead.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Out Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Foster suffered the concussion during Monday's win over the Dolphins, so it's not a major surprise he wasn't able to clear the concussion protocol in the last few days. B.J. Finney is likely to take over at left guard for the Steelers.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Foster is currently in the concussion protocol, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Checked for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Dolphins while he gets checked for a concussion, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

It's unclear when Foster picked up the injury, but out of halftime, he won't make an appearance on the field. The Tennessee product will have to clear the league's mandated concussion protocol before being granted re-entry. In his absence, B.J. Finney has taken over at left guard and should continue to do so as long as Foster is sidelined.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Sticking with Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster signed a two-year, $8.25 million deal with the Steelers on Thursday, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Foster started all 16 games for the Steelers last season and has missed only four games over the last four seasons, so it's unsurprising the team wanted him back on a short-term deal. The 33-year-old will likely remain at left guard for the Steelers in 2019.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Foster sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs but ultimately wasn't forced to miss any practice time. The 32-year-old should be at his post at starting right guard for the Steelers on Monday.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Suffers knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) sustained a knee injury in Sunday's 42-37 loss to the Chiefs, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

It remains to be seen whether Foster's current injury is related to the bone bruise he spent the offseason nursing. With Marcus Gilbert (hamstring) also recovering from an injury, Pittsburgh's offensive line enters Week 3 surrounded by question marks. If Foster were to miss any time, B.J. Finney would step in for him at the left guard position.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) returned to practice Monday, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

The bone bruise that kept foster sidelined for almost a month appears to now be a thing of the past. One of the longest tenured Steelers, Foster started 14 games for Pittsburgh last season and figures to be a key cog looking ahead at 2018.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Diagnosed with bone bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was diagnosed with a right knee bone bruise after hyperextending the area during Saturday's practice, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Foster was lucky enough to avoid serious injury, which was the initial fear after he was carted off the field Saturday. His timetable for recovery is still four-to-five weeks, however, so his availability for Week 1 of the regular season isn't solidified at this point.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Avoids serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (knee) suffered a hyperextended knee Saturday but avoided ligament damage, Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network reports.

The Steelers feared the worst after Foster was carted off with a knee injury Saturday, but tests came back negative for ligament damage. Foster's timetable for recovery is four-to-five weeks, meaning the mainstay at guard could be ready for Week 1.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Carted off with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was carted off the field Saturday due to an apparent knee issue, the PIttsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Foster has started at least 14 games for the Steelers in each of the last seven seasons and was seeking a contract extension with the club entering the final year of his contract in 2018. Unfortunately, the 32-year-old guard's season may have come to a screeching halt Saturday. Bringing out the cart generally signifies a major injury, but it's best to wait until additional test results come in before drawing any conclusions about his status moving forward.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (concussion) was a full participant at the Steelers' practice Wednesday.

Foster sat out Monday's win over the Texans but appears to be clear of the concussion protocol. Thursday and Friday's practice sessions should clarify whether the 31-year-old is fully clear of the concussion.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Inactive Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (concussion) is inactive for Monday's matchup with the Texans, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Foster sandwiched a pair of missed practices around a limited Friday session, so it's little surprise he'll sit this one out. B.J. Finney will draw the start in his stead.

December 23, 2017 02:48 PM
Steelers' Ramon Foster: Questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (concussion) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Texans, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Foster didn't practice Saturday after being a limited participant Friday, so it would appear he did not make significant further progress in the concussion protocol. The 31-year-old is likely to be a game-day decision for the Christmas Day matchup in Houston.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Progressing in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (concussion) was a limited participant at Steelers' practice Friday, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

Foster was placed in the concussion protocol following last Sunday's loss to the Patriots, but he's progressed enough to practice on a limited basis. The 31-year-old's participation at Saturday's practice should provide more clarity on his status for Monday's game against the Texans.

December 19, 2017 03:52 PM
Steelers' Ramon Foster: Placed in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Foster has been placed in the NFL's concussion protocol, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Foster wasn't forced to exit early in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Patriots, but after being evaluated a day later, it was determined that he was exhibiting symptoms consistent with a concussion. He'll need to pass all five phases of the protocol in order to suit up Week 16 against the Texans.

Steelers' Ramon Foster: Full participant at Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (back) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Foster missed Week 6 with a back injury, but his unrestricted participation at Thursday's practice indicates he will play in Sunday's game against the Bengals. Expect him to start at his normal left guard spot.
