Colts placed OT George Foster on injured reserve, ending his season.
The 2003 first-round pick of the Broncos was signed in May. Foster hasn't appeared in a game since 2008, and missing all of 2012 should just about put a bow on his career. Mon, Aug 27, 2012 05:05:00 PM

Colts signed OT George Foster and waived FB Ryan Mahaffey.

A first-round pick of the Broncos in 2003, Foster hasn't appeared in a game since 2008, though he did spend last preseason with the Saints. A certified bust, Foster is unlikely to go from camp body to roster surprise for Indy.

Lions released OT George Foster.

Jon Jansen, who agreed to terms on Friday, hasn't passed his physical yet, but the Lions must be confident that he will. Foster has been so bad in pass protection that he may have a tough time finding another job.

Lions re-signed OT George Foster to a one-year contract.

Foster has been downright awful as a pass-blocker the past two seasons. The Lions aren't viewing him as anything more than a backup at both tackle and guard.

Lions RT George Foster was benched again on Sunday.

This was commonplace for him last year, mostly due to an insane amount of false starts. Sunday, Aaron Kampman beat him for two sacks. Gosder Cherilus finally got in, and on his first play Detroit ran behind him for a gain of two.

Lions agreed to terms with OT George Foster on a one-year contract.

Asked to pass block frequently in Mike Martz's offense at right tackle last year, Foster floundered and eventually lost his job to Damien Woody. Through the first ten weeks, he led the NFL in false starts and yielded 9.5 sacks.

Lions RT George Foster leads the NFL in false start penalties with nine this season. He has yielded 9.5 sacks, second most of any tackle in the league.

Foster has also been benched countless times this year, and was again Sunday even though his primary backup, Jonathan Scott (thumb) was out. Look for a big game from Packers LE Aaron Kampman this upcoming week.

George Foster was benched late in Sunday's game for the second straight week.

Initially said to be benched in favor of Jonathan Scott, offensive coordinator Mike Martz said Thursday that George Foster will start in Week 5.

According to the Detroit News, Foster "is on notice," which is perhaps similar to double-secret probation.
