DAVIE—The Dolphins are on Day 4 of the Chris Foerster scandal, and questions persist about the extent of his issues and how much the organization knew or should have known.
A video was released showing Foerster snorting lines of white powder, and the woman who claims to be the recipient of the video said it was taken at his desk in the Dolphins’ facility. She made various other claims about Foerster using cocaine.
Gase gave a vague answer Monday when asked if he had any indication that Foerster had problems, and today he was pressed on whether the behavior depicted in the video was more widespread in his building than merely one assistant coach.
“I don’t—To me, it was an isolated incident,” he said. “Really, that’s the best answer I can give you. A lot of people are just a little surprised.”
It’s unclear whether he’s saying it was isolated as in no one other than Foerster was involved, or if he meant that it was a one-time incident for Foerster.
Gase and the team are eager to move past this scandal as they prepare for Sunday’s game at Atlanta. New assistant coach Dave DeGuglielmo, an offensive line specialist, was on the field for today’s practice working with assistant offensive line coach Chris Kuper.
The only Dolphins offensive lineman to address the Foerster situation was rookie tackle Eric Smith, who is on Injured Reserve. None of the starters ventured into the locker room during media availability Monday.
