Foster Trying To Keep The Streak AliveNovember 21st, 2013
Mason Foster had his coconut rattled against Atlanta on Sunday and was pulled with a concussion, or an “incussion,” as Foster described it.
Foster hasn’t returned to practice yet, apparently surrendering to NFL brain injury protocols, but Foster remains hopeful of a return in Detroit, so he told Joe today.
Foster also doesn’t want to break a personal streak he’s got going. Foster hasn’t missed a game of any kind since a busted thumb playing baseball as a little kid. Foster was a catcher and was forced to move to the outfield when he returned. But since then, Foster said, he never missed a high school, college or pro game of any kind.
Joe’s pulling big time for Foster’s return. He’s a playmaker on the Bucs defense, and with Dashon Goldson out, it could be brutal for the Bucs to be without two starters up the gut of their defense against the explosive and balanced Lions.
