Texans Notes: Foster, Brown

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

The Texans feel better about their running game because Arian Foster averaged six yards a carry in preseason. Foster, who played at Tennessee, was an undrafted free agent.

General manager Rick Smith gave Foster a two-year contract to keep him away from the Saints and Jets, among other teams.

"We saw a lot of talent, but there were obviously some knocks to keep him from being drafted," coach Gary Kubiak said. "I don't remember as much injuries as they were having a bad year at Tennessee.

"We took a chance on him, and he's kind of grown up. The talent's there. Hopefully, he'll keep it going."

• Kicker Kris Brown wore a boot around the locker room this week because he's suffering from plantar fasciitis. He's kicked with it before.

"Kris kicked (against Dallas) through his foot bothering him a little bit, so we're getting him rested," coach Gary Kubiak said about the boot. "He's kicked with it before."

Fantasy Impact: 

As far as the kicking job goes, it looks Neil Rackers should win the job.
