Arian Foster was “frolicking” on Wednesday

There has been a lot of optimism in Houston that Arian Foster will be ready to roll in Week One, but the signs weren’t too encouraging on Wednesday.

Foster missed practice, and admitted he didn’t know if he was playing against the Colts.

“I don’t know. We’re going to take it day-by-day and see how it feels on Sunday,” Foster said.

Coach Gary Kubiak talked up Foster’s progress working on the side of practice.

“We’ll see where we’re at tomorrow, but it looked like he did a little bit more from me watching from afar,” Kubiak said in comments distributed by the team. “If Arian’s full speed and can play, we want him to play. We need to be at our best to win a football game, but at the same time, we’ve got to listen to what’s going on.”

It doesn’t make sense to push Foster to play when the team has quality backups in Derrick Ward and Ben Tate.   Still, Foster believes he’s almost ready to suit up.

“I was cutting. I was running, cutting and frolicking,” Foster said.

Frolicking sounds good. Definitely a lot better than anti-awesomeness.

    Was he frolicking or frolfing?

  9. mrbigass says: Sep 7, 2011 8:04 PM

    He’s a hoot. Certainly more interesting and fun to watch than those asshats like Moss or TO or….(insert additional asshat here)…..

    Foster is no one year wonder, when he is right, he is ghost down the sideline. He was have this injury for a while though.

    …for a player thought to be as cerebral as Foster (although i’ll buy “frolicking”). Am I the only one who finds “anti-awesomeness” disturbing? – purely from an academic standpoint…

  12. edavidberg says: Sep 7, 2011 8:11 PM

    I hope they play him and he re-aggravates it. He’s be a fool to play in week 1.

    Webster’s Dictionary: Frolicking (verb); to move about cheerfully, excitedly, or energetically.

    That’s code for “put me in coach, I’m ready to play”. Atta boy Arian.

    Frolicking??? Seriously? Between this and his “poetry” … this guy has Show Tunes written all over him.

  15. ilovefoolsball says: Sep 7, 2011 8:32 PM

    So who should I pick up? Ward or Tate? Come on, provide me with some useful information PFT, not just NFL giggly goo.

  16. jredshoes says: Sep 7, 2011 8:34 PM

    Call Tiki. He’s available and will leave the Texan fans “flabbergasted”

  19. sdw2001 says: Sep 7, 2011 8:37 PM

    Huh. I suppose there really *are* a bunch of gay players in the NFL.

  20. dbellina says: Sep 7, 2011 8:56 PM

    OMG I hope he’s OK for Fantasy Football!! I better ask him on Twitter to find out!

  21. starfan79 says: Sep 7, 2011 8:58 PM

    he can take the week off…im playing against him in ff.

  22. bcgreg says: Sep 7, 2011 8:59 PM

    @ peester15

    As long as he dances all over the Colt defense, then he can have “Show Tunes written all over him” all he wants.

  23. cardsfann1 says: Sep 7, 2011 9:18 PM

    Not feeling good since he was my first round pick. Thought that I was sitting good when I got him with the 6th pick. Damn it.

  24. txxxchief says: Sep 7, 2011 9:20 PM

    I love Arian. He is funny, but not cerebral. He said he didn’t know if he was playing against the Colts, but I think he believes the first game is against the Packers. He’ll show up for that one.

    Running backs run, butterflies frolick.

  26. numberoneinthehoodg says: Sep 7, 2011 10:14 PM

    Spread is at -8 for Houston. Seems a little high but I’m not touching this one.

  27. citiciti says: Sep 7, 2011 10:26 PM

    Did he tip toe thru the tulips also?

  28. icelovinbrotha215 says: Sep 7, 2011 10:55 PM

    The lockout is over. We can stop with the meaningless articles.

    I do think he’s the most talented Texans back, although it’s not as wide a margin as some think. However, he can smell a Michael Vick like story happening with Ben Tate if he sits, so he is chomping at the bit to not lose his job. Against the Colts Mike Tolbert could run for 200 yards… I think they’ll hold him out and Arian better be doing one of those T.O. hyperbaric chambers to get his butt back on the field for week 2!

    Frolicking? WTF is this the sound of music? Lol foster is a cool guy. Hard working but has a sense of humor. Good for him.

    Dear Adrian Foster,

    If you wanna help your team, sit down for 3-4 weeks, and come back and rule the league. if you wanna screw over yourself, your hammy, your team, and all your sick fantasy football owners (who were at least sick enough to draft you sso high, i’ll give ya that!), then keep playing on that leg.
