Texans running back Arian Foster's rehab is going well, general manager Rick Smith and head coach Bill O'Brien said Friday.
"He's working hard, he's in the building, he's in the training room consistently," Smith said. "The reports I'm getting from Geoff [Kaplan, head trainer] indicate he's going to be fine."
Foster struggled with several injuries last season, starting with a calf strain during organized team activities then a back injury that healed in time for him to start the regular season. Foster also dealt with a hamstring injury and then finally a back injury which knocked him out for the rest of the season when he decided to have surgery.
Foster's back injury required microscopic lumbar disectomy surgery, which was performed by Robert Watkins in California in November.
