NFL Injury Report:
The Houston Texans recently activated running back Arian Foster from the physically unable to perform list, and the All-Pro rusher has
returned to practice. While Foster is already increasing his practice reps,
head coach Gary Kubiak told reporters that he doesn’t see him suiting up for
the team’s third preseason game.
“I don’t see him playing,” Kubiak said. ”Like I said,
I hope he has such a good week that he’s feeling like, ‘Hey, I can go play
10-15 plays,’ and talking to me that way. I think with the time he’s
missed, the smartest thing is to get in a couple of good weeks of practice.”
Even though Foster isn’t likely to play in the Texans’ third
preseason game, Kubiak did have good things to say about his running back’s
recent practice sessions. The head coach noted that Foster “looked good,”
adding that he was playing in pads. Kubiak expects Foster to continue to
progress, though the team will monitor his rehab and move forward with the same
precautious approach they’ve used thus far.
“[H]e looked good,” coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday, via
quotes distributed by the team. ”He did more. He put his pads on
with everybody else. I think we went from like 10 reps to 20 today.
We picked up his work. He felt fine coming out of yesterday. Today’s
the same, looked the same to me. We’ll just keep taking it almost as if
he started training camp yesterday.”
Whenever reports came out that Foster’s back discomfort had
traveled to his legs, there seemed to be cause for concern. However, just after
that, the Texans activated him from the PUP list, and he has plenty of time to
return to form prior to the start of the regular season.
Foster has said that he’s not a big fan of the preseason,
and it’s probably safe to assume that he’ll be suiting up Week 1 as long as he’s
healthy, even if he’s not able to play in the team’s final two exhibition
games. If for whatever reason he’s not, Ben Tate will be the team’s feature
back early in the season.
