Arian Foster practices at Texans minicamp

The Texans may not have had wide receiver Andre Johnson or helmet decals when they started minicamp amid a sea of new faces on Tuesday, but familiarity wasn’t completely cast aside.

Running back Arian Foster took part in the practice, his first since being placed on injured reserve because of a back injury last season. That injury required surgery, although Foster said last month that it wasn’t a particularly serious operation and coach Bill O’Brien said all looked well during Foster’s return to the field.

“He’s cleared,” O’Brien said, via the Houston Chronicle. “He looked good. He looked fine.”

The Texans solidified their depth chart behind Foster by signing Andre Brown as a free agent this offseason and Brown’s presence may mean a less onerous workload for Foster than in the past, but the top running back job and a big role in the offense is going to be Foster’s as long as he’s healthy enough to take it.

    Thats good to hear. Too few elite backs in this league. Foster is a fun one to watch.

    You mean CHINA DOLL practice. Would NOT touch this guy in fantasy football with a 50 foot pole.

    wouldn’t touch him with a 50 ft pole?..I’m guessing either you don’t play fantasy or you’re not very good at it. 25 carry backs are VERY rare in the NFL today. Foster is one of maybe 4/5 of em’. When healthy and it looks like he is..He’s a first round pick !..I hope my league feels like you and he falls to me in my draft. That way I’ll win for the 3rd yr in a row..
