Reuben Foster, a potential top-10 pick in next month's NFL draft, was sent home from the Indianapolis scouting combine for a "heated altercation" he got into Friday with a hospital worker, according to multiple sources.
All one NFL spokesman would say was that Foster was being sent home for "personal reasons." He did not want to comment further.
Foster is the top-graded inside linebacker for many teams.
Foster was scheduled to fly home to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on Saturday.
