by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster is not expected to play Saturday against the Broncos in Denver, as he continues to work his way back from a hamstring issue, per the Houston Chronicle. The decision to keep him out of the game was likely made as a precaution. Chances are Foster won't play his first game until Week 1 against Washington.

Arian Foster 'feeling good' despite uncertain status for game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Texans stud running back Arian Foster announced that he's "feeling good" after the team's shared practice Thursday with Denver. But he remains uncertain about his availability for the Saturday game against the same team.

"I'm just going to keep working ... and however the chips fall, they well," he told the Houston Chronicle. Foster added that the practices against the Broncos have proven "extremely beneficial."


Arian Foster amps it up, displays 'normal acceleration'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster increased his activity Tuesday during a joint practice with the Broncos. Foster "often ran with the Texans' first team and displayed his normal acceleration," the paper said.

Foster dealt with a minor leg injury early in camp. It's unclear if he'll make his preseason debut Saturday, when the Texans play Denver in the third preseason game.


Arian Foster, Andre Johnson not expected to play Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Both players were able to return to practice Wednesday, but they'll stay out of game action Saturday. As long as neither one of the team's top offensive weapons suffers a setback over the coming week, they figure to participate in next week's preseason game.

Coach hopeful Arian Foster, Andre Johnson will play Saturday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster (undisclosed) and receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) missed practice again Monday, but they "put in hard work on a side field while rehabbing from injuries" and coach Bill O'Brien is hopeful they can play Saturday against Atlanta, reports the Houston Chronicle.

"I've spoken to both those guys. They're doing better," O'Brien said. "It's a long season and our trainers are doing a great job with them. But it seems like they've improved and hopefully they can do something this week."

Foster's injury also is believed to be a hamstring issue.


Andre Johnson, Arian Foster to miss Saturday's game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Thursday running back Arian Foster (hamstring) and wide receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's preseason game at Arizona.

Arian Foster considered retirement last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster considered retirement following the back surgery that ended his 2013 season. The 27-year-old told ESPN he suffered a "scary" spine injury that made him worry about paralysis.

"It happened just like on a simple routine. I cut and I just felt like my back, this little slip. It was awkward. I tried to play the next play with it too, but I couldn’t even lift my knees," he said.

Foster said he "absolutely" considered quitting football.

"Any time an athlete goes through an injury like that -- a back, a neck, even knees or hips, something that puts you out for the entire season -- you kind of re-evaluate your life," he said.

"You see what's really important. Is getting paralyzed more important than playing with your grandkids when you’re 50, 60 years old. People die on the football field. This is a really brutal sport. Going through an injury like that, being 27 years old, I’m young, still I’m at the prime of my career. Is it worth it to try to come back?"

Foster has not practiced since last Wednesday due to what the team calls a minor injury. It is believed to be a hamstring issue, not a back injury.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Houston Chronicle said Foster presumably is dealing with a strained hamstring. Foster practiced Wednesday but missed three workouts and part of a fourth this week. O'Brien reiterated he expects Foster to be "a three-down back," the paper said.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

"(Arian Foster is) a really good football player," O'Brien said according to the Houston Chronicle. "This team is really counting on him. You know, he's a guy that is smart, instinctive and obviously very talented. The Houston Texans need a healthy Arian Foster, so it was good to see him out there."

Foster's 2013 campaign ended early because of a back injury that required a minor procedure. He's expected to be their every-down back in 2014.

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.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

"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.
