RB Arian Foster, who was undrafted, began his career on the Texans’ practice squad but has more than proved his worth after two 1,000 yard seasons and leading the league in rushing in 2010. In Houston’s wild-card matchup against Cincinnati Saturday, Foster continued to make a case for just how important he is to this offense, rushing for 153 yards on 31 carries, including two touchdowns. And yet, the Texans and Foster have “made zero progress” towards a long-term deal, a source tells ProFootballTalk.com’s Mike Florio. Foster will be a restricted free agent this offseason, which means that the Texans don’t have to concern themselves with a multi-year contract just yet. Instead, they can sign him to a tender that what Florio suspects will be in the neighborhood of $3 million for 2012 and revisit things 12 months from now.
