by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster registered his 27th career 100-yard game and scored his first touchdown of the season against the Raiders in Week 2.

Foster ripped a 40-yard run, leaving him down at the 1-yard line on the opening drive of the game. Two plays later, J.J. Watt scored a receiving touchdown. On the ensuing drive, Foster broke free for a 5-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. 50 of his 96 first-half rushing yards came on the opening drive.

Foster took 28 handoffs for a game-high 138 yards and a touchdown on the ground, averaging 4.9 yards per attempt. He caught two of three targets for 12 yards in a 30-14 victory. He has rushed for 241 yards on 55 carries through two games.

The Texans will travel to New York for a Week 3 showdown against the Giants.

Arian Foster rushes for 103 yards in season opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster surpassed 100 rushing yards during Houston's 17-6 win Week 1 vs. Washington.

Foster, whose 2013 season ended early due to a back injury, totaled 103 rushing yards on 27 carries. It was the 29th time in his career, including the playoffs, Foster rushed for 100-plus yards and his first 100-yard game since Week 6 last season.

His longest rush went for 10 yards and he also lost a fumble in the red zone in the fourth quarter. Foster finished with two catches for 17 yards. The Texans play the Raiders in Week 2. 


Arian Foster 'will play a lot' Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Thursday running back Arian Foster, who was sidelined this preseason for precautionary reasons coming off back surgery, will start Week 1 and "will play a lot," per the team's official website.

Plenty of intrigue surrounding Arian Foster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster said he is ready to go Week 1 vs. Washington after sitting out the preseason for precautionary reasons. The football world is eager to see how Foster fares in his first game action since Week 9, as he missed half the season in 2013 due to a back injury.

If the Redskins are anything like they were in 2013 against the run, then this could be an ideal matchup for Foster to make his return. The Redskins allowed running backs to average 21.4 Fantasy points per week last year, which was the third-highest average. Running backs averaged 93.1 rushing yards, 41.8 receiving yards and totaled 23 touchdowns (20 rushing) in 16 games against Washington.

Foster slipped in drafts this summer due to durability concerns. But even before getting hurt last year, he was averaging 4.5 yards per carry, which was more than the previous two seasons when he surpassed 1,000 rushing yards.

Foster definitely seems like a Fantasy player that has boom-or-bust potential. But most Fantasy owners still drafted him as a No. 1 Fantasy running back, so heading into Week 1 he should be in your starting lineup.

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.

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.
