The Texans got the news they needed, as quarterback Case Keenum prepares to make his second start tonight against the Colts.

He won’t have to do it all himself.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Texans running back Arian Foster will be active tonight.

Foster has been bothered by a hamstring strain, and was limited in practice this week. But if he’s back, along with Ben Tate (cracked ribs), Keenum won’t be under the same kind of pressure, which can only help, as the 2-5 Texans try to salvage something from the first half of the season.
