Texans running back Arian Foster can’t seem to shake his hamstring troubles.

After missing the first half of August with a left hamstring injury, Foster left Saturday’s preseason game after aggravating the the same injury, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Foster knew right away there was a problem.  After a nine-yard run, Foster angrily walked off the field and threw his helmet.  He finished with eight carries for 38 yards.

The third-year player has unquestioned talent, but he must show this year he can hold up physically after such a big workload last year. It’s too early to panic, but this month has been concerning for Texans fans.  (And Foster’s fantasy owners.)
