Texans RB Arian Foster wasn't interested in even acknowledging that he had been asked a question as he walked through the locker room Sunday night. He declined other media requests as well, maintaining his trend from the prior week during which he declined interview requests on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Prior left Sunday night's game with what the team called a back injury.
As the story points out, sometimes when players dodge the media, it's because they are frustrated about their own health. Foster should be. This, after all, is a separate injury than what was ailing him for the past two weeks. For two weeks it was a hamstring that kept him out of practices. Ben Tate, still recovering from his four broken ribs, and undrafted rookie Dennis Johnson were left to carry the load after Foster left. However, it didn't help owners who went with Foster when learning he would be active.
