Eric Foster Injury Update: Former Rutgers Football Player Needs Surgery

According to the Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis Colts defensive end Eric Foster, a former Rutgers University football player, will need surgery after injuring his right ankle in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-17 victory Monday night. ESPN.com is reporting that Foster dislocated his ankle after trying to help tackle Bucs' quarterback Josh Freeman late in the second quarter.

Fortunately, Foster left the field on a cart, but was pumping his chest and yelling to teammates as he left. Foster has compiled 12 tackles so far this season. It is still unknown how long Foster will be out for.

There was a lot of reaction to Foster's injury as Twitter exploded with comments. However, the most sincere tweet came from ex-teammate Eric LeGrand, the Rutgers football player who last year suffered a severe spin injury and is now going through spinal cord rehabilitation.

"Pray for my man your gonna be alright."
