The Houston Texans placed running back Arian Foster on injured reserve Tuesday afternoon, officially ending his season. Foster was told by several back specialists that he needs season-ending surgery to repair damage in the area. He sought multiple opinions in an effort to avoid surgery, but no one would clear him to play. Foster will still likely be a big part of the Texans moving forward. When healthy he’s one of the NFL’s best and most versatile running backs, and he will cost a reasonable $5.75 million in 2014. He’s only 27 years old and is just a year removed from rushing for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also caught 40 passes for 217 yards and two scores last season. Clearly the Tennessee product is the kind of guy you can build a team around, which is good because the Texans are likely going to need pieces to build with after this season. Houston’s current roster has turned in an atrocious 2-7 start to the season and much of it could be sent packing this offseason. Foster...

Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak returned to work on a limited basis on Monday after his mini-stroke on Nov. 2.
