Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster was not invited to Thursday’s NFL Draft, according to ESPN’s Katherine Terrell.

Foster, a projected first-round pick, was reportedly not invited after he was sent home from the draft combine for getting into an altercation with a hospital worker.

While the details are not entirely clear, Foster reportedly grew impatient while waiting for a “pre-exam” and confronted a hospital worker, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The worker reportedly did not take Foster’s comments kindly and shot back, and the two got face to face before being separated. The incident didn’t seem to affect Foster’s draft status, despite the fact that the incident made him miss team interviews and testing.

It did, however, seem to affect his standing with the NFL, which did not provide comment to ESPN.

Foster also recently made news for announcing that he tested positive for a dilute sample at the combine. Foster said in a statement to NFL.com, “I don’t make excuses. I’m a real dude. I try to be a good person. … I just hope the coaches understand, and that’s all I can hope and pray for.”

Foster is projected to be drafted 15th in our consensus mock draft.
