Texans running back Arian Foster began training camp on the active / physically unable to perform list with a calf injury he’s been dealing with since earlier in the offseason.
However, head coach Gary Kubiak doesn’t believe Foster will be long for the PUP list.
“I expect him back pretty quickly,” Kubiak said Friday, according to the club.
Kubiak said that Foster not being cleared right off the bat to start camp was “(a) little bit of a surprise to me,” but Kubiak indicated that the club’s training staff believes Foster “needs a few days with them to work into the routine.”
Kubiak said that Foster has “had a good summer; he’s been here every day.”
Given that Foster racked up a combined 460 touches in the regular season and playoffs in 2012, a few extra days on the sidelines isn’t a real concern. In fact, it may well be a good thing.
