No. 4: Inside Linebacker Reuben Foster
Second-year linebacker Reuben Foster made his highly anticipated 2018 debut against the Chiefs on Sunday.
How’d he do? Well, he did make a lot of great plays as usual, but he was also missing tackles left and right.
Foster and fellow inside linebacker Fred Warner combined to miss 10 tackles in the game, which is very unusual since both are what I call “tackling machines.”
The missed tackles for Foster were disappointing, to say the least. He will have a tall task in stuffing Chargers running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler, two electric players who specialize in breaking tackles. Foster (and Warner) will have to step it up and stop missing tackles if they want to shut down this high-powered Los Angeles offense.
