Arian Foster’s status remains undetermined

Texans running back Arian Foster continues to deal with a hamstring injury that he suffered in his first training-camp practice and aggravated twice, most recently on Sunday against the Dolphins.

Foster didn’t practice on Wednesday, and he returned to practice on a limited basis on Thursday.

“He was limited in practice today,” coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday.  “He went the whole practice.  There’s a progression here going on and he’s progressing very nicely.  We’ll see where he’s at tomorrow.  It is a day-to-day situation, but he took some limited reps today. . . .  As I said, he can’t go from zero to everything, so we’re trying to keep this progression going.”

With Ben Tate posting back-to-back 100-yard efforts, the smart move continues to be to put Foster on the shelf until he’s 100 percent.  The problem is that, with Derrick Ward still not practicing due to ankle and shoulder injuries, the Texans would be left with Tate and Steve Slaton as the top options against the Saints, increasing the chances of another injury to another tailback.

Either way, Foster already has had his 2011 season run aground by a hamstring injury, and it’s safe to say that someone else will lead the NFL in rushing in 2011.

    Wow. These guys have 3 starting quality RB’s on the roster. I didn’t realize slaton was still hanging around, but when he’s not putting the ball on the turf, he’s a 2nd tier RB at the worst.

    After his amazing year last season, (during which he was making peanuts, relatively speaking) it’s sad to see this guy hobbled during a contract year.

    Get well soon, bud.
