ESPN - [Full Article]

No stranger to dispensing medical updates on his social media feeds, Texans running back Arian Foster posted a video on Tuesday of his doctor giving him an update.

"Today you start some light jogging," says the man wearing a Houston Methodist Hospital coat. "No pivoting, cutting, explosive activity. Strengthen all you want. Do your heel lift, elliptical, bike, jog. Surf. Maybe not surf."

You can hear Foster in the background of the video while the doctor ticks off the things he can't do. Foster says, "But I can jog?" and then makes an approving sound at the affirmative response.

Fantasy Impact:

On a per game basis, Foster was #6 in standard formats and #3 in PPR. The Texans are rumored to be moving on from Foster, but he's still under contract for 2016.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 19. Ware figures to play against the Patriots. Ware out-touched Charcandrick West 16-to-9 last week against the Texans, and he also out-touched West 16-to-14 in Week 17. The ankle injury makes him tough to count on this week, however.
