Fozzy Whittaker‘s season has ended before it could even begin. The Panthers announced the running back has been placed on injured reserve with a non-contact ACL tear.
Whittaker, 29, has spent the last four seasons with the Panthers. For the most part, he’s been used as a reserve option and a third-down running back. He saw the most usage of his career in 2016 when he carried the ball 57 times and averaged an impressive 4.6 yards per try in that limited sample.
Cole kept the A’s scoreless in the 10th and 11th innings, setting the table for Walker to steal the spotlight.
I gave it everything I had because I know they’re doing the same, Cole said of his teammates.
Nobody will question the on-field talent of 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster. The 2017 first-round pick made plays all over the field and amassed 72 tackles as a rookie last season. From a talent standpoint, he’s one of the best players on San Francisco’s roster.
Unfortunately, off-field behavior could lead to Foster’s release. Foster was arrested in February on domestic-violence charges involving his ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis. Ennis has since recanted her accusation, but the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office is still following through with charges. His future with the team will depend on the legal outcome.
If Reuben did indeed hit this young lady, he won’t be a part of our organization going forward, 49ers general manager John Lynch said, per Cam Inman of the Mercury News.
According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports, the district attorney is in possession of video that is described as showing the alleged victim sustaining injuries in a fight with another woman.
Foster may well be cleared of the charges. If he isn’t, he’ll become one of the most talented young players on the NFL cut pile.
If things were based on talent alone, there’s almost no way the Seahawks would consider cutting safety Earl Thomas. The Texas product has been a mainstay of Seattle’s defense for eight years and is a six-time Pro Bowler.
