Summary

After three years of success and high mileage usage, Arian Foster finally took a step backwards due to knee, calf and back injuries. He was shut down after week eight last year to heal a disc injury that required surgery. Foster is planning on being back to full strength for the 2014 season, but the Texans offense is not the same as it used to be. Head Coach Gary Kubiak was replaced by Bill O'Brien and Foster's leading fullback Greg Jones appears to not be in the equation. This year is a definitely a crossroads for Foster. If he can rise to the occasion and be a success after returning from injury, playing on a team with a new coaching staff and 14 consecutive losses, then his legacy deserves to be remembered.

Latest News

Texans | Three participate in practice (Tue Aug 19, 04:17 PM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring), WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) and LB Brian Cushing (undisclosed) were all active for practice Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Our View: Another step in the right direction for Johnson and Foster, but more of a baby step than real progress. We want to see both play in the third game of the preseason this weekend to feel comfortable taking them at their 2nd and 4th round ADP.

Texans | Two starters sitting (Sat Aug 16, 07:08 PM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) and WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) will not play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Our View: It's wise for the Texans to shut these two down this week. The Texans travel to Denver for practice next week. Our very own Cecil Lammey will keep us up to date from Dove Valley as the Broncos and Texans hold joint practices.

Texans | Arian Foster's status for preseason game uncertain (Thu Aug 14, 01:25 PM) - The Houston Texans have not decided if RB Arian Foster (hamstring) will play in the second preseason game, but he is close to fully participating in practice, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Foster participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 14, for the second straight day.

Our View: As long as Foster suits up for the third preseason game, there's no reason to be extra worried about this condition. Foster came into 2011 with some hamstring issues, aggravated it and missed two games, and still finished as a top 5 back and helped bring home titles. He and the Texans aren't as good as they were then, but this should be comforting if you decide to take the plunge in the 2nd.

Texans | Arian Foster returns (Wed Aug 13, 09:08 AM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 13.

Texans | Arian Foster still not at practice (Tue Aug 12, 04:28 PM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice again Tuesday, Aug. 12. Head coach Bill O'Brien hoped Foster would return to practice at some point this week.

Our View: These hamstring injuries for both Foster and wide receiver Andre Johnson are not comforting fantasy owners. Foster has a current ADP of RB11 (2.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.
