The Redskins officially placed Foster (shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foster has been playing through a torn labrum and will likely undergo surgery in the near future. Martell Spaight and Will Compton should both see increased workloads at inside linebacker with Foster officially out on injured reserve.

Foster will have surgery to repair a torn labrum and is expected to be placed on injured reserve, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foster has been playing on the torn labrum, but it appears as though the pain ultimately became too much to manage. So, to prevent any further damage, the linebacker will undergo what is believed to be season-ending surgery. Both Will Compton and Martrell Spaight are expected to take on additional snaps at inside linebacker in Foster's absence.

Foster (shoulder) is officially active for Monday night's game against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Foster earned the questionable tag after putting in limited practice sessions this week, but will give it a go Monday. The 28-year-old looked good in his return to action in Week 6 and had the team's bye week to further recuperate from a Week 2 shoulder dislocation.

Foster recorded seven tackles (six solo) in Monday's loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Foster didn't appear to be slowed down by a shoulder injury that left him limited in practice all of last week, as the inside linebacker put together a solid performance Monday night. He'll now get a chance to rest the injured shoulder as the team enters their bye week, which will hopefully leave Foster in full health for Week 6's tilt with the 49ers.

Foster (shoulder) is officially active for Monday night's game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Foster was listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis throughout the week, and will suit up for his first game action since dislocating his shoulder Week 2. The 28-year-old should resume his usual role at inside linebacker since there has been no mention of a limited snap count.

The Redskins have officially listed Foster (shoulder) as questionable for Monday's matchup versus the Chiefs, John Keim of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foster injured his shoulder in Week 2 against the Rams, and was sidelined for their subsequent game against the Raiders as a result. His presence at practice throughout the week is cause for optimism regarding his status for Monday, but a final decision is unlikely to be made until closer to game time. Will Compton would presumably fill in for Foster should he ultimately be ruled out.

EDGE Analysis

Foster (shoulder) is questionable to play Sunday against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Foster dislocated his shoulder last week against the Rams but had it popped back in on the sidelines and ultimately returned to the game sporting a harness on the afflicted area. If he isn't given the green light to play Sunday, look for Will Compton to assume an expanded role.

Foster (shoulder) took part in Thursday's practice, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foster suffered a dislocated shoulder in the Redskins' Week 2 win over the Rams that seemed likely to threaten his availability for the Week 3 tilt with the Raiders, but that may no longer be the case. The linebacker practiced in limited fashion Wednesday, and his presence on the field for a second straight day suggests that he could be trending toward playing Sunday. The team will likely continue to evaluate Foster on a day-to-day basis before offering more formal clarity on his status for Week 3 following its final practice of the week Friday.

Foster will receive a second opinion on his dislocated shoulder this week and appears unlikely to play Sunday against the Raiders, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foster injured his shoulder while picking off a pass to seal the Redskins' win over the Rams in Week 2. The linebacker is still holding out hope that a second opinion will reveal his injury isn't quite as severe, but the Redskins seem destined to be without his services in Week 3. Foster's likely absence could open up a starting role for rookie second-round pick Ryan Anderson.
