Houston Texans Rumors: Arian Foster’s Season Should End With Back Surgery





The Houston Texans’ season may be over as it pertains to the playoffs, but the folks of H-Town still have a lot to look forward to with the development of Case Keenum under center over the second half of the season. However, the young signal-caller could be doing that without Arian Foster.

The Texans’ star running back has seemingly been banged up all season, which is ironic since news recently broke of his Fantex Stock. Needless to say, the back injury he suffered in a Week 9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts isn’t going to do his IPO any favors.

In fact, that back injury could sideline him for the rest of the year as SportsRadio 610 in Houston reported Friday that Foster will likely undergo season-ending surgery. That possibility grew drastically when he was officially ruled out for the Texans’ Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

At 2-6, the Texans aren’t expecting to turn their season around, so getting Foster healthy for 2014 while Keenum prepares to lead the team then would be smart. With eight more games under his belt and a healthy All-Pro running back to lean on, Keenum could easily lead Houston back to the playoffs next year.

Another reason this season should be chalked up as a practice campaign for Keenum is the health of Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, who suffered what the team is calling a “mini stroke” at halftime of Houston’s Week 9 loss to Indianapolis. With their head coach and offensive play-caller ailing, the Texans would be foolish to risk further injury to Foster for the remainder of this season.

Texans fans should hope their team makes the right decision with Foster sooner rather than later.
