Texas DB B.J. Foster Fractures Hand Punching Own Vehicle

NCAA Football: Big 12 Championship-Texas vs Oklahoma

Sure, we’re all frustrated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of sports (for now), but Texas defensive back B.J. Foster really took things to a new level this week.

Head coach Tom Herman announced that Foster suffered a broken bone in his hand when he punched the bumper of his own vehicle.

Herman said Foster got angry when he found someone had damaged his car and didn’t leave a note.  So, he took it out on the vehicle.


“We had a long conversation on that,” Herman said according to the Austin American-Statesman. “Every time in my 45 years on the planet when a player gets in a fight with an inanimate object, usually the inanimate object wins.”

Foster has been banged up lately as is, recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. Foster is expected to be fitted for a cast and thankfully he will still be able to participate in summer workouts.

Foster is a former five-star prospect in the Class of 2018 and was rated as the No. 3 safety in the country. He’s started 14 of his 22 games played, including eight of nine last season before missing games due to injury.
