Arian Foster 'just given some rest'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster is reportedly fine despite not finishing practice Sunday and leaving the field on a cart, according to ESPN.com. Foster was "just given some rest," the report said.

Coach Bill O'Brien said Foster is "O.K. as far as I know."


Coach: Arian Foster 'O.K. as far as I know'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien said running back Arian Foster, who did not finish Sunday's practice, is "O.K. as far as I know," reports ESPN.com. Trainers were seen stretching Foster's left hamstring as he watched the end of practice.

No further information has been released.


Arian Foster 'shut down' early Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster was "shut down" with about an hour of practice remaining Sunday, reports ESPN.com. It was unclear what the issue was. 

According to CSNHouston.com, trainers were stretching Foster's left hamstring, which is "not new for him."


O'Brien fine with letting Foster work passing downs too


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Texans head coach Bill O'Brien has spoken highly of Arian Foster all offseason long, but on Tuesday he discussed Foster's receiving skills with the media and made it clear he's not afraid to let the running back handle that on top of everything else he'll be asked to do

"In the past, we've had guys like Kevin Faulk, Danny Woodhead in this offense that have filled those types of roles," said O’Brien per Comcast Sportsnet, "and now it looks like definitely Arian will be able to do that and more.

"What the most important thing to do is to make sure that you look at the player's skill set and figure out how they fit your system, or our system, and so what we do is when we have a back that is a three-down back as Arian is, a guy that can play on first, second and third down, then you're finding ways to incorporate him into the passing game and the running game and it really works out well for your offense."


Arian Foster expecting to get a lot of work


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Arian Foster participated in the Texans' recent voluntary workouts and deemed himself "back" following surgery on his back last fall and rehab over the winter and spring. 

Foster tells KRIV-TV in Houston that he's anticipating a lot of work this season, not only as the Texans' primary rusher but also as a receiver. 

"So far I really love it," Foster said of the new Texans offense. "It's very versatile. Coach O'Brien has expressed many times how he wants to use me a lot out of the backfield. That's one of my strengths as a running back. So I'm excited about it."

Through 53 games over the last four seasons, Foster has averaged 20.3 carries and 3.4 catches per game. With over 1,300 total touches in his career Foster should have enough gas in the tank to grant O'Brien's requests. O'Brien does have a strong track record of leaning on his running backs dating back to his days as the Georgia Tech offensive coordinator.


Arian Foster participates in spring minicamp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/7/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster was a full participant in the Texans minicamp practice on Tuesday. He underwent surgery on Nov. 13 to fix a herniated disc in his back but seems fine. 

"We have to go watch the tape, but he’s just like everybody else: first day, learning the systems and I think everybody without singling anybody out, I thought everybody had a decent start to the first day," coach Bill O'Brien said when asked about Foster per ESPN. 


Arian Foster says he'll be ready for OTAs


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Arian Foster: Surgery 'wasn't as major as it sounded'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster told Bleacher Report that the surgery he underwent Nov. 13 to fix a herniated disc "wasn't as major as it sounded. That's why I rebounded so quickly. I also worked my ass off. I'm expecting to do bigger things and bounce back."

Foster averaged 4.5 yards per carry in eight games last season and is poised for a big 2014 workload with Ben Tate now in Cleveland.


O' Brien expects Arian Foster for offseason work


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) New Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said at the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando to CBSSports.com that he expects running back Arian Foster to be ready to participate in offseason workouts. Foster effectively missed nine games last season with a back injury. 

"He's good. He's going to participate in the spring," O'Brien said. "I've had like three conversations with Arian, good conversations, good guy. I believe he'll be ready to go in the minicamps."

O'Brien also said that while he doesn't have all the running back depth he's used to having, he expects Foster to have a large role in the Houston offense, which is no surprise given his track record. 

"He's shown to be one of the better backs in this league," O'Brien said. "He's carried the load in the past. ... Arian's going to be a guy that we're looking to lean on, no question about it."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Arian Foster's rehab going well


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster is doing well in his rehab, reports ESPN. General manager Rick Smith said Friday that Foster is getting close to a full recovery.

Foster struggled with several injuries last season, starting with a calf strain during organized team activities then a back injury that healed in time for him to start the regular season.

Report: Arian Foster out for the season


by Jeff Tobin | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Houston Texans running back Arian Foster will have surgery to repair a bulging disc in his back and is expected to miss the rest of the season, according to NFL Network.

Foster, who had already been ruled out for his Week 10 game at Arizona, apparently received multiple opinions about the extent of his back injury before coming to the conclusion that surgery was needed.

His 542 rushing yards ranked ninth in the league and he scored one touchdown on the ground. He also collected 183 receiving yards and another score through the air. Ben Tate, who is dealing with a rib injury of his own, is the heir apparent to Foster's starting running back job.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports the Texans are expected to move Foster to injured reserve on Monday. CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora said Foster still wants to play this season, but that's highly unlikely. La Canfora said Foster will meet with the team this week for a final determination, but it's doubtful he plays again this season.

Arian Foster officially out for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) The red light is shining brightly for Texans running back Arian Foster. Gary Kubiak announced Friday that Foster has been ruled out for Sunday at Arizona.

His absence will elevate Ben Tate into the starting role.


Texans top backs still struggling to get healthy


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) The running back situation with the Texans isn't getting any healthier. Featured back Arian Foster missed practice again Thursday with a back injury from which he is struggling to recover while backup Ben Tate contributed on a limited basis despite four broken ribs.

Arian Foster checking with docs on ailing back


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2013) A nagging back had Texans back Arian Foster consulting doctors on Wednesday and not practicing, according to ESPN. Foster aggrevated the back injury early in the Sunday loss to Indianapolis after having been limited in practice last week with a hamstring problem. He has also dealt with a calf injury this season.

Foster has performed with his usual brilliance despite those problems. He has rushed for 542 yards on 121 carries for a 5.3 YPC average, though he has scored just one rushing touchdown.

His status for Sunday against Arizona remains undetermined. Ben Tate will serve as the featured back if Foster can't play despite his own issues with broken ribs.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
