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.

Texans | Arian Foster sits (Mon Jul 28, 02:31 PM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Monday, July 28. Foster had his hamstring stretched during practice Sunday, July 27.

Our View: Foster is a seasoned pro who doesn't need a zillion reps in training camp. The Texans are wise to take it easy on the veteran given his importance to the team--and his history with injuries.

Texans | Arian Foster leaves practice (Mon Jul 28, 12:39 AM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (undisclosed) left practice early Sunday, July 27, but the injury does not appear to be serious.

Our View: Foster owners can breathe now, but this moment reminds us about Andre Brown's significant injury upside and even late-round pick Alfred Blue's chances of getting on the deep dynasty radar in the event of a Foster injury this year.
