Former Rhode Island football player Jason Foster went to his first training camp with the Indianapolis Colts and began his first NFL season with a winning preseason game on Sunday, August 12 against the St. Louis Rams.
As an undrafted free agent, nothing is guaranteed for Foster. However, after the team’s spring mini camp, Foster felt he was progressing well in his attempt to earn a spot on the final 53-man roster.
“Mini camp went very well,” Foster said. “I’m doing everything the coaches say, and I’m staying after practice to work on my technique and sets. I’ve been watching a lot of film and studying my playbook a ton.”
Foster’s former Rhody teammate Matt Hansen was doing well with the Atlanta Falcons, but a knee injury suffered during offseason workouts sidelined him before the start of training camp. He is working his way back to the field.
