With the season opener only 14 days away and with Texans running back Arian Foster suffering from an aggravation of the hamstring injury he sustained on the first day of training camp, Houston fans (and all fantasy football players who have drafted Foster) are getting nervous.
Coach Gary Kubiak sounds optimistic. At least for now.
“Everything was positive today,” Kubiak told reporters, a day after the injury. “It looks like we’re dealing kind of with the same thing we were dealing with at the start of camp. Hopefully get him back on the rehab train and get him ready for opening day. He’ll be day-to-day. I’ll keep you guys up to date, but we feel like we’re fortunate.”
Still, Kubiak acknowledged that the news won’t be as good as it can be until Foster actually returns.
“Until he’s there, it’s a concern,” Kubiak said. “All indications that I got from [trainer Geoff Kaplan] today were very positive from a standpoint of what they’re dealing with compared to what they were dealing with the first time and Arian’s very positive about it. We’ll see, but until he hops back out there, there’s a concern. It sounds like we’re heading in the right direction.”
The Texans open against the Colts on September 11.
