Former Alabama WR Robert Foster placed on IR after suffering injury in Giants practice

New York Giants wide receiver Robert Foster recently suffered a hamstring injury in practice. As a result, the Giants placed Foster on the injured reserve.

Foster spent his college career at Alabama. Out of high school, he was regarded as a five-star by many recruiting services. The expectations were certainly high for the Pennsylvania native.

Through five seasons in Tuscaloosa, he hauled in 29 receptions for 345 receiving yards and three touchdowns. A lot of Alabama fans would argue that Foster wasn’t utilized enough. However, injuries were a significant issue for Foster while with the program.

In 2015, he earned a starting spot at wide receiver. That didn’t last long as he suffered a season-ending injury early in the season against Ole Miss. Nonetheless, he did go on to make some positive contributions over the next two years.

He recently signed with the New York Giants this offseason after having spent time with the Bills, Packers, Commanders, Dolphins and Cowboys. There has been no official report as to how severe his injury is.
