Report: Arian Foster out for season with back injury

Arian Foster, Ben Tate AP

It keeps getting worse for Houston.

Texans running back Arian Foster has a back injury that will require surgery and is out for the rest of the season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Texans will announce that Foster is going on season-ending injured reserve on Monday, Rapoport reports. Although Foster wanted to see if he could tough it out and play this season, he had three doctors tell him he needs back surgery, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Foster’s season ends with 121 carries for 542 yards and one touchdown.

    At what point in the prior two seasons were the Texans described as the AFC team of the future?

    While it may not be a wise move for most players, it now looks like Foster was smart to recently sell 10% of his future football earnings for $10 million.

    Didn’t he just sell stick in himself? Time to call the SEC.

    Not like he was doing anything worthwhile…

    Ben Tate’s FF value just skyrocketed.

    Looks like HE picked a good time to sell 20% of his rights. On the other hand, Fantex screwed up big time unless they have protection built into the deal.

    They should have done this in the off-season.

    Is he going to be indicted on insider trading?

  12. kd75 says: Nov 10, 2013 8:47 AM

    Short that Arian Foster stock…

    Tough break. And yet ESPN still has him as undroppable, guess they layed off the Tech Guy.

    Curse of 400+ carries strikes again…

  15. denverdude7 says: Nov 10, 2013 9:32 AM

    I picked up Ben Tate 3 weeks ago for my fantasy football team.

    I am now accepting trade offers.

  16. nemobhax says: Nov 10, 2013 9:42 AM

    I picked up Dennis Johnson yesterday because it looked like Arian would go on IR.

  17. dodohead418 says: Nov 10, 2013 10:43 AM

    Who bought his stock I wonder?

  18. gottagoballsout says: Nov 10, 2013 10:57 AM

    So much for being vegan in the NFL…

    A poster here said he was smart for taking the $10 mill? I bet he KNEW he’d likely have to have season ending back surgery and he realizes he probably has peaked. It’s amazing when you think of some of the great running backs of all time and what do they most of them have besides amazing stats? Longevity, playing consistently at a high level.
