Arian Foster back at practice, Andre Johnson still out

The Texans have had two of their veteran offensive stars on the sideline this week because of hamstring issues, but one of them made it back to the field on Wednesday.

Running back Arian Foster missed a pair of practices because of his hamstring, but Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle reports that Foster has returned to work. There’s no word on whether Foster will be a full participant in this session, although the quick return is a good sign that the tweak was as minor as Texans coach Bill O’Brien said it was.

While the Texans have also downplayed the seriousness of wide receiver Andre Johnson’s hamstring injury, Johnson was not able to join Foster and the rest of the team on the practice field Wednesday. That makes two missed practices in a row for Johnson as he tries to catch up for time missed when he was staying away from offseason workouts because of dissatisfaction with the overall direction of the franchise.

If the team’s assessment of Johnson’s hamstring was as on point as their assessment of Foster’s, the receiver shouldn’t be out too much longer.

    “dre is beating them at their own game…”

    That makes no sense whatsoever. Even if he was faking an injury to collect money while not participating in camp, that’s certainly not the Texans’ ‘game.’ Not to mention the fact that Johnson said he was happy with the team’s direction and even inquired about future opportunities with the team after retirement.

    I need to know if I should keep Foster as my fantasy keeper. I haven’t been able to find any reliable info on this matter.

    Can you send a reporter to Houston to ask him if he’s going to be good this year?

    With his injury prone history…. trying to pull one over on the Texans this way isn’t wise. I figure he probably just injure….. again!

    Johnson is sitting out to not have to pay the fines. He’s forcing his way out. He will likely be traded to the Pats.

    So he shows up to camp, looks really good for 3 days, then pretends to injure himself to force a trade.

    Um, okay….
