As the first Sunday of the regular season approaches, Texans running back Arian Foster has given his team a scare.

Foster left practice Thursday with a knee injury.

“Arian said his knee was sore so we pulled him out,” coach Gary Kubiak said after practice, via comments transcribed and distributed by the team.

Linebacker Brooks Reed also left practice early, with a hip injury.  Kubiak expects both players to be available on Sunday, for the regular-season opener against the Dolphins.

    Eat a burger Arian. Your body is rebelling.

    He’s obviously not getting enough protein

    Got to get the excuses ready early for their underwhelming season.

    Ben Tate is just as good as Foster and Forsett looked REALLY good in preseason.

    As long as Schaub and AJ stay healthy, Tate and Forsett will be able to carry the load if Foster can’t go.

    Everyone has said he is fine.

    Any half way decent fantasy football player who owns foster has Ben Tate on stand by.

    and that right there, is precisely why I drafted a Mr.Ben Tate in my League

    Ive been saying this far and wide since the vegan news broke; he will go down with injury this year. Ive experienced this diet myself and it certainly does not mix with athletics. Whey protein is an athletes best friend and even that is off limits to him. Vegetarian is a possibility for an athlete with extreme beliefs about animals, but he will still need to pound eggs like the serpent from Anaconda the movie would if he were a real snake

    Nothing worse the fantasy football people whining or boasting over a injured player!!

    Drafted Tate, Ryan Williams and David Wilson for this exact reason: ones likely to end up starting sooner than later due to injuries for their teams current #1 guys.

    “As the first Sunday of the regular season approaches, Texans running back Arian Foster has given his team a scare.”

    Umm, no, he gave fantasy football players a scare.

    Hope he gets better soon, I hate when teams (not just the Texans in this particular case) blame losses on injuries

  18. brizzle059 says: Sep 7, 2012 4:38 AM

    I grabbed Tate with my last pick with an already stacked rb core! (rice, McCoy, Mathews, Benson, and sproles) might pay off!!!

    Don’t know why everybodys’ high on foster, he missed significant time last season due to injuries. This is why I hate predictions, everybody has him at being the #1 leading RB for the season and he’s the #1 fantasy back. If I was participating on these fantasy draft, theres no way im taking a guy whose been plagued by injuries, my top three backs would be mccoy, rice and rising doug martin.

    Fist of all, a “sore knee” doesn’t qualify as an injury. He may be listed as questionable now but this is precautionary and I doubt he’ll sit out the season opener.

    And secondly, Foster missed 3 games last season and still managed to put up 1224 ruyd, 617 reyd and 10 td; giving him the 4th most fantasy points for a rb. The reason why he’s number one in ff is because he has the most potential assuming he plays in every game.

    I understand that there’s a chance he won’t play the whole season, but I’d say he has the same likelihood of getting injured as every other starting rb in the nfl. It’s a tough position, they’re all injury prone.
