Report: Arian Foster suffers serious groin injury

Jayson Braddock on Twitter - [Full Article]

Texans RB Arian Foster's groin injury is serious in nature. Source said it should require surgery and may be candidate for IR with designation for return.

Fantasy Impact: 

Owners in early drafts will want to avoid Foster until Braddock’s report (of surgery) can be confirmed or denied. We’ve moved him down in our rankings, but there isn’t a lot of clarity about the severity of the injury at this point. Foster has a history of soft tissue injuries, but had a relatively healthy season in 2014. Alfred Blue should be the biggest beneficiary from Foster missing any potential games, but Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk are also in the mix. Blue saw 169 carries last year but only averaged 3.1 YPC. If Foster does indeed miss games, then the running back competition in Houston will be one to monitor this summer.
