Arian Foster returned from a groin injury and caught a 15-yard pass on the Texans' first offensive play. He then carried for two yards and three yards before Ryan Mallett was picked off. On the day, Foster gained 10 yards on eight carries, and three passes for 25 yards. Physically, both Foster and O'Brien were positive about the Pro Bowler's health.
"I came out fine," Foster said.
The head coach reiterated that on Monday, saying Foster "should be ready" for the Thursday-nighter against Indianapolis.
Foster was a risky start and unfortunately for owners the game dictated how much Foster played. When it got out of hand, there was no point in keeping him out there. The Texans hope this week is a different story and perhaps now that Foster got his feet wet, he'll take on more of a workload in Week 5's Thursday night game.

Week 4 at Atlanta
Ryan Mallett is starting to get this QB thing down. He did a good job of managing the Texans first win last Sunday versus the Bucs, finishing 24-of-39 for 228 yards and a TD. Houston controlled the clock for over 36 minutes and ran 30 more plays than Tampa Bay. Ryan did a good job of spreading the ball around to six different receivers and has thrown one touchdown in each of the first three contests this season. The ground game was dominant in the victory and could get even better if Arian Foster is back this week. If he is, it should take some pressure off Mallett, who should still be considered no more than a QB2 option.
