Arian Foster feeling “wonderful” heading into Week One

Texans running back Arian Foster must not have gotten too many “mundane questions” during his session with the Houston media on Tuesday because he was more expansive than he was during preseason press availabilities.

Foster said he was happy to see defensive end J.J. Watt get rewarded for being a “hard-working cat” and said that he has something to prove to himself after last season’s back surgery. Foster, who didn’t play in preseason games after injuring his hamstring early in camp, says he feels “wonderful” physically even though he acknowledges that it’s unclear how the missed time this summer will affect him in the regular season.

“I feel like it could go both ways. If you’re a veteran player who understands how the game is played, it can work to your advantage. It can work to your advantage taking hits off in the preseason,” Foster said, via the Houston Chronicle. “On the flip side, it gets you used to the load you’re going to carry in the season. You just have to play the cards you’re dealt.”

Foster was averaging 4.5 yards a pop before he got hurt last season, right in line with his career average and should still be productive as long as he’s healthy enough to be in the lineup. That’s hardly a sure thing, but the Texans offense is counting on it all the same.

    I always liked watching Foster glide through the zone blocking. I remember watching him in preseason, I knew he was going to be a good player. He’s gonna have to be a crutch for our QBs this year.

    He’s good, talented I mean…

    But it’s such a physical game and they all break down at different times and speeds…

    If he’s healthy, he’s very good.

    I just don’t see him staying healthy all year though.

    How long he’s healthy will be key.

    Arian ruined his own body with his BS philosophical view and going “vegan” in his diet and finally, his big contract. He hasn’t been worth a damn since then! He has been injured every since the ink dried on his contract. He will be on the injured reserve list before the sixth game of the year.

    Orakpo and Kerrigan will only be able to wave as Foster glides right past them for score
