Unbeknownst to NFL media and fans, Reuben Foster tested positive at combine. The failed drug test is the result of a diluted urine sample.
A lot of speculation arose after Foster was sent home from the combine (March 3rd)). ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Foster got into a “heated argument with a hospital worker”.
Foster believes he had food poisoning. He told NFL.com “I couldn’t eat much, but I had to drink water and Gatorade,” Fostersaid. “Then a few coaches said something about me being too light. And I’m a coach-pleaser. I don’t care what everybody thinks, but I care what coaches think. So I drank and ate as much as I could without throwing up. Then I went in there, drinking and drinking water, trying to flush out my system from whatever was making me sick and trying to keep my weight up and took the test.”
