Foster says he’ll “more than likely” be ready for camp

Arian Foster said reports last month about him being on crutches for a calf strain were overblown.

“Yeah, it’s going good man,” Foster told FOXSports.com during an appearance to tape a commercial. “It’s just a small calf strain. News is dry in the offseason, so it made headlines.”

Asked if he’d be ready for training camp in late July, Foster replied: “Yeah, more than likely.”

While picking on the media in the offseason is an easy mark for players, the fact is, his injury must have worried someone for him to not be certain about his condition a month from now.

And it was apparently serious enough for him to crawl into a hyperbaric chamber.

“I try to get in there once a day. I try to get in there for 45 minutes or an hour or two hours. Some guys believe in it, some guys don’t,” he said. “It creates the white blood cells in your body and helps with oxygen flow to promote the healing process and recovery. I feel like it works.”

Obviously, news is dry in the offseason, so Foster’s aggressive and unconventional treatment of an injury that’s barely worth mentioning makes headlines.

    Eat a couple of steaks a week and you’ll feel much better and stronger, Arian.

    He might use the hyperbaric chamber for his general health, as a lot of players do (Lavernaues Coles using it on Hard Knocks comes to mind). Where in that quote does he say it’s treatment for the injury?

    Didn’t some guy on the Steelers lose a whole bunch of games last year because of a “minor” calf strain?

    Mkay Peytonsneck18 we’ll see what happens when JJ won’t even let Luck move two steps without knocking his pacifier out.
