Arian Foster says he's day-to-day with hamstring issue

Texans RB Arian Foster was inactive against the New York Giants on Sunday, and gave an injury update on Monday morning.

The Texans running back said he's still "day-to-day" with a hamstring injury that kept him from playing in the Week 3 loss. Foster was listed on the injury report last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday as "limited" because of a hamstring injury.

He worked out prior to the game at MetLife Stadium, but was unable to play. He said his hamstring felt "good" on Sunday, but not good enough to suit up against the Giants.

Foster's carried the ball 55 times for 241 yards and a touchdown this season.

Fantasy Impact:

The injury comes in the same week the Texans said they wanted to get other RBs involved to keep Foster healthy after he had another big workload in Week 2. In his place against New York, rookie Alfred Blue started and picked up 78 yards on 13 rushing attempts. He broke loose for a 46-yarder in the third quarter. Blue would likely see a lot of work in a good matchup with the Bills should Foster not be able to play this week.

Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 3. Foster is expected to play, but Alfred Blue ran ahead of Jonathan Grimes in Week 2, so he would presumably take over as the Texans' RB2 if Foster is unable to play. The Texans play early on Sunday.
