No practice for Arian Foster on Monday

Arian Foster AP

The Texans played much of last season without running back Arian Foster because of a back injury, making life more difficult for their offense and creating some worry when Foster had to leave Sunday’s practice early.

The good news is that the reason for his departure, which came with the assistance of a cart, didn’t seem to have anything to do with his back. He was getting his legs stretched out on the sideline before riding the cart to the trainer’s room and the Texans didn’t express much concern about his status.

“Is Arian OK? As far as I know,” coach Bill O’Brien said, via CSNHouston.com.

Whatever the issue — Foster dealt with hamstring troubles in training camp last year — it is enough to keep the back off the practice field during Monday’s first padded practice of camp as well. It may just be precautionary as the Texans try to keep a small problem from blossoming, but it will certainly be something to watch given Foster’s recent injury history. Andre Brown will likely see a few more reps with Foster out of the lineup.

    Thats why you never give a running back the money he got paid two years ago and he’s been out hurt. What a wast

    Something always wrong with this guy every year during training camp! I predict this will be the last year you see Foster in a Texans uniform.

    This is the reason I put Foster on my DO NOT DRAFT list in my Fantasy leagues. He is just to injury prone. Let someone else fight these battles.

    Under Bill O’Brien, I highly doubt we’re going to see any “Anti-Awesomeness” tweets…

    Ever since Foster got paid, he’s been less effective on the field. Either this is a strange coincidence or Foster is pulling a Chris Johnson. I think it’s the latter.

    You did watch Ben Tate last year, right? Ben Tate didn’t rescue the Texans once and has had more injuries that Foster in less time.

    Arian has become so full of himself. I think his 15 minutes of fame are up.
