Houston Texans running back Arian Foster exited last Sunday’s
contest against the Minnesota Vikings due to an irregular heartbeat. Earlier in
the week, Foster was cleared by doctors to return to practice and participated
in yesterday’s session, according to Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle.
As expected, Texans running back Arian Foster was cleared
and, according to Texans coach Gary Kubiak, participated in all his scheduled
repetitions at practice today.
Foster exited last weekend’s game in the third quarter due
to the irregular heartbeat. Trainers cleared Foster to return to the contest in
the fourth quarter, but coach Gary Kubiak kept the running back sidelined for
the remainder as a precautionary measure.
Foster visited with cardiologists earlier in the week who
confirmed that he was alright. Considering Houston is still in a battle with
the Denver Broncos for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, it wouldn’t be surprising to
see Foster suit up this weekend.
