The Washington Redskins apparently believe Reuben Foster will be ready to roll week one of the 2019 season.
Foster was signed by the team after the 49ers cut him following an arrest for alleged domestic violence. However, the charge was eventually dropped, and it sounds like the Redskins believe he won’t be punished.
“The league is still finishing their investigation of it. I don’t know why we would expect a suspension, but we’ll let the league finish up,” Redskins president Bruce Allen told NBC Sports on Tuesday.

If Foster isn’t suspended, which seems like the likely outcome at this point, then the Redskins can breathe a huge sigh of relief.
Let’s not forget that they got absolutely hammered for the decision when it first happened, and that’s totally understandable. (RELATED: NFL Star Receives His Sentence On Gun Charge. Does It Go Far Enough?)
The league has an issue with violence against women. That’s a fact, and signing a guy just cut over claims of that nature isn’t a great look. That’s probably a reason why he was put on the commissioner’s exempt list so quickly after inking a deal.
I can’t wait to see the reaction from people around the league if he doesn’t get punished at all. Some people will try to burn the league to the ground.
