Arian Foster to be removed from PUP list

Texans running back Arian Foster is one step closer to returning to action.

Foster will be added to the club’s active roster and removed from the active/PUP list on Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.

Foster has missed all of training camp and the Texans’ preseason games to date because of a back ailment.

The Texans’ regular-season opener is Monday, Sept. 9 at San Diego. Foster’s removal from PUP allows him to practice and means he’s passed a physical — good signs indeed for one of Houston’s most important players and one of the NFL’s most versatile running backs.

    Is this guy still a top 5 pick in fantasy?

    As much as I like Foster, the Texans are well suited to play ball without him. Ben Tate is no chump.

    Doesn’t he start every season like this?

    I bet this was the plan all along. Limit his action in preseason and bring him back fresh just before the regular season.
