Houston Texans running back is giving back to his offensive lineman after they helped him eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the third straight year.On Wednesday, the Pro Bowler gave each of his offensive lineman an early Christmas gift in the form of a Segway."I can't do anything without them," Foster said of Houston's linemen. "It was just my way of giving back to the big fellas."Apparently, Foster already owns one of the personal transporter machines."I feel like all of them big hogs up front can enjoy the joy that I get from riding my Segway," Foster said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "Guys like Chris Myers and (Duane) Brown and Wade Smith, they're always getting on me about riding my Segway. 'You can't walk? You're too good to walk?Foster then added, "I was like, 'No, man. I would just rather ride wheels.' I saw a little jealousy in their eyes when they were talking about me, so I figured I'd get all the linemen a gift."The 26-year old leads the NFL with 14 rushing scores this season to go along with 1,313 yards on the ground. He is virtually a lock to earn his third consecutive Pro Bowl appearance once the NFL unveils the rosters later this month.Via ESPN.
