Report: Texans' Foster tentatively scheduled for surgery Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2015) Texans running back Arian Foster is tentatively scheduled to undergo groin surgery Friday, a source told ESPN.

Foster is headed for Philadelphia for a second opinion with Dr. William Meyers, who is a sports hernia specialist. Unless Meyers has a different diagnosis, then Foster will have the surgery in Houston, the source said. 

Foster suffered a groin injury during a pass play Monday. It happened during the Texans' first fully padded practice. He will likely miss the start of the season and could be placed on short-term injured reserve, which would allow him to return after Week 8.

"He's going to miss some time, there's no doubt about that," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "We have no idea how much time he's going to miss. There's medical opinions that still need to take place. One thing I want to say about Arian is, you know, I feel bad for him personally. I think he came into this offseason and he really worked extremely hard, came back here and ran the conditioning test really, really well, came back in great shape, and he was practicing well. But, as a football team, it's next man up, next man up."

Second-year running back Alfred Blue is expected to move into the starting lineup in Foster's absence.
