TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Indianapolis defensive tackle Eric Foster was carted off the field after injuring his right leg late in the second quarter of the Colts' Monday night matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The injury occurred with 52 seconds remaining in the half and the Colts leading 10-7. Foster got tangled up with the pile while trying to assist on a tackle and remained down after the play. He was immediately attended to by the training staff and fitted with an air cast.
He could be seen waving briefly to the crowd as the cart drove into the tunnel.
Foster, out of Rutgers, is in his fourth season and entered the game with 12 tackles.
