Arian Foster cleared for jogging

There was a report last month that the Texans are expected to part ways with running back Arian Foster this offseason thanks to the combination of his nearly $9 million cap hit and frequent injuries in recent seasons, including the torn Achilles that brought his 2015 season to an early end.

The Texans haven’t offered any hint about their plans, but coach Bill O’Brien said last week that Foster is “working hard to get back.” Foster can add a bit more work to his routine after a visit to the doctor at Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine that Foster captured on video and posted to Instagram.

“Today you start some light jogging,” the doctor tells Foster. “No pivoting, cutting, explosive activity. Strengthen all you want. Do your heel lift, elliptical, bike, jog. Surf. Maybe not surf.”

“Back against the wall once again,” Foster wrote as a caption for the video. “I live for s— like this!!!! f— “they”, we out here dreamin!”

Foster’s progress won’t do anything to change his cost under the cap and may not help him stick in Houston for the 2016 season, but his chances of landing somewhere should rise along with his return to speed in the coming months.

    As far as I know he’s Beend injured for the last 4 years or so. He’s a liability

    The only jogging he should do is in a pool. With a lifeguard or two watching just him.

    When was the last year he was healthy?

    He’ll probably pull a hammy while jogging.

    Wasn’t he threatening to retire a couple years ago?

    Still capable of being the best back on a per game basis. At a reasonable price someone is going to get themselves a good player.

    Reasonable will be hard to quantify. Perhaps he gets the per game started and finished incentive clause…it worked out well for Greg Hardy.

    My favourite back to watch. He’s a silky smooth runner and his vision and cuts create bonus yards in the zone scheme. Please, stay healthy Mr. Foster.

    So how’s that vegan thing working out? Just curious.

    The Texans can’t afford to cut playmakers on offense. Have plenty of room under cap to keep him.The team is deficient in this area and lacks speed at WR also.
    They need to upgrade QB, 2nd WR, TE, mulitple Special Teams at a minimum.
    They are not in a position to cut Arian Foster if they want to compete at all.

    In 2014, he had 1248 yards in 13 games and 8 TDs. His cap hit is not that bad, and we can’t afford to lose any offensive weapon. QB and TE are priorities.

    Too little too late Arian, the Fantasy season ended weeks ago.
