Houston Texans Rumors: Arian Foster Injury Not Too Serious, Should Be Back Soon

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

Before the start of training camp, the Houston Texans placed Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. The move came as somewhat of a shock, especially to head coach Gary Kubiak.

“I thought he’d be ready to go, but (the team trainer) just thinks he needs a few days with them to work into the routine,” Kubiak said, according to ESPN. “But he’s had a good summer; he’s been here every day. I expect him back pretty quickly.”

Foster is coming off his third straight 1,200-plus yard season and a 2013 in which he scored 15 touchdowns. He switched up his training routine this summer in an effort to ‘reinvent himself’ and try to perfect his craft.

“I just want to harness my craft and hone it and be the best me I can be,” Foster said. “Ultimately, if I’m the best me for my team then that helps us get wins. I think that’s what every athlete’s goal should be: just be the best for them and to be part of a unit.”

Foster says he doesn’t quite feel 100 percent yet and until he does, there is no reason to rush anything. He knows he’s played through a lot in his career and at this point it would be foolish to rush back from anything like this.

It sounds like both he and the team expect a return sooner rather than later, maybe even this week. Hopefully for the Texans they can get him back soon. If worse comes to worse and he misses a big chunk of time, he is still a top-3 back in the NFL and should be just fine.

Watch Chiefs' Smith Hit Conley For Huge TD

Right before this touchdown, Jeremy Maclin may have suffered a serious knee injury, which means the Chiefs are going to need more of this out of the rookie Chris Conley. With a 20-0 lead, the Chiefs will likely advance to the AFC Divisional Round next week.

Texans Actually Tried J.J. Watt At QB

There's something to be said for pulling out all the stops and using every trick play in the book to win a playoff game, but bringing in J.J. Watt to play quarterback in the wildcat formation was probably a giveaway that he would be running the ball.
