Eric Foster Suffered Dislocated Ankle Monday Night Against Bucs

Don't watch this if injuries make you squeamish.


Pretty horrible injury, and it clearly affected the entire team when Eric Foster was laying flat on the turf at Raymond James Stadium, clutching his leg in agony. The injury recalled Joe Thiesman's gruesome leg injury many years ago at the hands of Lawrence Taylor.

Tyler Brayton, Foster's teammate and the player who accidentally fell on the fourth year defensive tackle's ankle, seemed most visibly shaken.

Foster stayed in a hospital in Tampa overnight. He used the time to tweet to us fans:

Thank u all 4 such kind words. I thank u Lord in Advance. Women around the world gettn treated 4 cancer. May God have mercy on all o us.

Everyone from Colts fans to Lebron James tweeted 'get well soon' wishes to Foster. No. 68 will have surgery on the ankle today in a Tampa hospital. His season is likely over. Look for the Colts to promote Ollie Ogbu from the practice squad to replace Foster.
