Should the Houston Texans Be Concerned Over Arian Foster’s Calf Injury?
The start of the 2013 NFL preseason is right around the corner and unfortunately for numerous teams–the injury bug has caught up with them to some of their star players. As for the Houston Texans, the team hopes a calf injury that placed Arian Foster on the PUP list at the beginning of training camp won’t have an impact on the regular season and even though they expect their star running back to return soon–should the team be concerned anyway?
Foster’s workload has been a reason for concern over the last couple of seasons as there have been times where’s he’s literally carried the Texans’ offense and the last thing the team wants to do is overuse him. Unfortunately, the calf is the type of injury that could stick around longer than expected and as crazy as it sounds–it wouldn’t be a surprise if the injury carried over into the regular season.
In other words, Houston may want to be extra cautious about Foster returning to the field quicker than he should.
Foster has emerged as one of the top running backs in the league over the last three seasons and is coming off another strong year in 2012 in which he started all 16 games for the Texans while finishing with 1,424 rushing yards to go along with 15 touchdowns. Houston has made significant progress over the last two seasons by reaching the playoffs, but they still have their goals set high and want to end the regular season with the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
Whether or not that actually happens will heavily rely on the status of Foster’s health–so let’s hope the Texans play it smart with this calf injury.
