Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster, who has been projected by many NFL draft analysts as a top-10 pick next month, has apologized to NFL teams for an ugly incident that resulted in his dismissal from the scouting combine this week in Indianapolis.

Foster, who was Alabama’s leading tackler and the Butkus Award winner as the nation’s top defensive player, got into an altercation with a hospital worker and was sent home before team interviews Friday night.

The incident occurred when Foster grew impatient as he waited for his NFL “pre-exam,” and a heated exchange ensued, although Foster denied it. “Y’all, stop asking me what happened, for real,” Foster said in a live Instagram video Saturday morning (via “Nothing happened.” Foster went on to urge people to talk to his Bama teammates about what happened and added: “I’m chilling with my people right now. My agent backs me. I’m staying low. When I get my chance, I’m taking advantage of it. I’m telling you. That’s all I know.”

A league source attributed the argument to a “miscommunication,” and on Sunday, ESPN and the NFL Network reported that Foster had apologized in the letter sent by his agent to all 32 teams and attributed the incident to a misunderstanding. He also invited team representatives to meet with him before Alabama’s pro day Wednesday so that he can go through the interview process he missed.

Foster is recovering from rotator cuff surgery and was not scheduled to participate in drills in Indy. In his video, he said he’d be out of the sling in a week.

“Everything ain’t perfect,” he said. “I’m good. I just have to think. I just had to sit back and relax and think about what I really want.”
