Arian Foster on crutches, but should be fine for camp

The thought of running back Arian Foster on crutches could derail most of the preseason optimism about the Texans.

But coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday that his star back “will be fine” for the start of training camp, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Foster was carted off after an OTA practice yesterday with a calf strain, and the invocation of the cart always triggers a slight panic.

But with six weeks or so to recover, the Texans are apparently not worried about his availability, though Kubiak called it “a pretty good calf strain.”
