Arian Foster set to return to practice Sunday

Arian Foster AP

Texans running back Arian Foster’s calf injury from May, which wasn’t a big deal in June, is sufficiently healed now that it’s August.

According to Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle, Foster is expected to be activated from the PUP list and begin practicing again Sunday.

 

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Ed Reed still wasn’t close to practicing after hip surgery, but was optimistic that taking the slow approach was going to be good for Foster.

It better be, because it’s frightening to think how much time he’d miss with something serious.

    No need to rush Foster. Seasoned veteran, been to many training camps

    Is he still the universal #2 player to be drafted in fantasy leagues after AP?

    Arian wont have near the yards of AD… but he will probably be #1 in TDs again this year. He has a nose for the endzone and the Texans love to run it in the redzone.

    Plus I think the offense might even be more potent this year than last year now that they have a legit #2 WR, so he might have even more chances down there.

    Just got to hope they get the right side of the OL shored up. It’s looking shaky at best right now.

    Legit # 2 WR ??? And how do u know DeAndre Hopkins (who I assume your talking about) is a legit # 2 ??? Dude hasn’t played a down in the NFL yet.

    I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating on the Texans, but there aren’t many WRs that get drafted to be # 2s that pan out right away. It takes a good 3 years to develop in most cases. Michael Floyd, Stephen Hill, Alshon Jeffrey, and Jonathan Baldwin to name a few that are still learning. Not everyone is A.J. Green or Julio Jones.
