If Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is looking leaner and sleeker in training camp, itâ€™s because he has adopted a new vegetarian diet during the off-season. <
â€śI didnâ€™t just blindly stop eating meat. I know what Iâ€™m doing," Foster said.

Today was a the opening day of Texans 2012 Training Camp, and there was a buzz in the air. So much 5,012 fans showed up as early as 2 a.m. before the gates opened at 7 a.m. Plenty of notes on todayâ€™s camp.
- The first hour of practice was outside, but was soon moved inside. The reason was that they wanted the team to get â€śacclimatedâ€ť to the heat.
- Â OffensiveÂ lineman...
HOUSTON Texans coach Gary Kubiak was effusive in his praise, and one object of his accolades on Monday underscored why the Texans should maintain the momentum they established defensively in 2011.
That Kubiak deemed it necessary to applaud third-year cornerback Sherrick McManis for having a "great morning" reinforced just what might be the Texans' most overlooked...
Wade Phillips will tell you Brian Cushing is better than people think. He'll tell you he made all the Texans' third-down calls last season and that whether you realized it or not, he was basically the leader of the defense.
"We coached the Pro Bowl," said the Texans' defensive coordinator. "We didn't have any inside backers that were better than him...
Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson has left practice with a pulled groin muscle.
Coach Gary Kubiak says Johnson's injury appears minor, but it may still force Johnson to miss ''a few'' practices.
Johnson missed nine games last season with hamstring injuries and was sidelined from the first organized team activities in the spring after arthroscopic surgery...
According to multipleÂ sources wide receiverÂ Andre Johnson will miss up to one week of training camp with a strained groin, and an MRI revealed no realÂ significantÂ damage. The injury happend in one on one drills when he jumped for a pass and came down hard on the ground after the pass. Johnson wanted to continue practice, but trainers put a stop to that in a hurry.
With the latest...
Youâ€™re doing me dirty Juanâ€¦
2011 Recap:Â To be fair Andre Johnson was having a pretty nice season until a nasty hamstring injury in week four pretty much ended his fantasy season.Â He did come back to TJ Yates and a decent playoff run of 201 yards and a TD against the Bengals and Ravens.Â Not necessarily push overs.Â
Whatâ€™s Changed:Â The Texans had to do what they had...
According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson suffered a slight groin injury and was taken out of practice on Sunday.
The good news is that Johnsonâ€™s injury doesnâ€™t seem to be serious. Â Heâ€™ll now likely be held out of practice or limited until he gets back to being 100 percent healthy.
â€śItâ€™s a minor (groin) strain,...
Tier 1: The Elite
1. Arian Foster
2. LeSean McCoy
3. Ray Rice
WhoÂ I want the most: LeSean McCoy. I love Arian Foster. I love Ray Rice. But like last year, I really love LeSean McCoy. And after these guys, well, let's just say the running backs are aÂ crap-shoot. These are hands down the elite, the most proven, and the closest to a surefire running back you will get this...
HOUSTON For some, the trading of veteran linebacker DeMeco Ryans to the Eagles on March 20 was a haphazard disregard of not only one of the more popular players in franchise history, but a defensive stalwart.
Never mind that Ryans was slowed by a preseason elbow injury and the rebuilt Achilles' tendon that sidelined him in 2010, or that he wasn't an ideal fit in the new...
With all the talent that comes out of Texas and goes on to become professional football players for various teams I began to think about the two professional teams we have now. I wondered if I could create an â€śUltimate Texas Teamâ€ť consisted of nothing but professional football players that are currently playing who would I pick? Well, seeing how we only have two professional...
We do the 2 step to warm up Juanâ€¦
The Texans are in full swing at training camp and here are three of their biggest offense stars getting warmed up. Problem is AJ already has a slight strain in his groin and will be held out. It may be minor, but is a big reason Iâ€™m holding off on him this season.
Iâ€™ll Pass On: Beanie Wells
