Colts: Eric Foster in good standing

The Colts just released this statement from Bill Polian regarding the civil suit against defensive linemen Eric Foster:

“We are aware that a civil action seeking monetary damages has been filed against Eric Foster.

“The alleged incident was investigated by law enforcement officials at the time the allegation was made. The appropriate authorities decided that there was no basis for charges to be filed.

“Based upon those facts, we have no reason to take any action, or to make any further comment on this matter. Eric Foster is a member of our squad and will participate in our off-season program.”

That's a good development for Foster, though the league will still look into the matter. The most recent reports still leave cause for some questions. Here is one from the Indianapolis Star that includes reaction from Foster’s lawyer, and another from the Chicago Sun-Times.
