Arian Foster will enter camp as Texans starter

Steve Slaton has the monster rookie year under his belt.  Ben Tate has the second round pedigree.  Arian Foster, however, owns the spot atop the Texans running back depth chart — at least for now.

“Arian gives us the size, and he made good decisions at the end of last
year,” Texans running backs coach Chick Harris told AOL’s Dan Graziano.  “I think we’re in a good spot with Arian starting it off, but I
also think Steve Slaton will contribute for us in a lot of ways. As far
as youth and talent, I think this is the best group we’ve had, if we can
just keep them healthy.”

The Houston Chronicle writes Slaton looked “lighter and quicker” this year, and coach Gary Kubiak believes Slaton will be 100% recovered from neck surgery by training camp.

Tate missed much of OTAs with a hamstring injury, but was drafted to take over the power running downs.

We’d bet against Foster remaining a starter by Week One, but this is a good problem for the Texans to have after their running game held the team back last season.

    Somehow, I think the irony of calling ourselves ‘Arian Nation’ would be lost on my non-caucasian fellow Texans fans…..C’mon guys, same team, SAME TEAM!!!!!
    Getting my ass kicked over a pun might not be worth it.

    I don’t think there’ll be any furher in this announcement.

    I got Foster in the 15th round of the few fantasy drafts I did so far. He looked great in the final two games of last year.
    Tate will get the goaline work though.
