When Texans running back Arian Foster was carted off the team’s practice field last month, several fans gasped. The franchise running back told FOXSports.com on Friday that Houston fans need not worry, he’s on the right path to recovery.
“Yeah, it’s going good man,” Foster told FOXSports.com in an exclusive interview on the set of a Foot Locker Under Armour commercial. “It’s just a small calf strain. News is dry in the offseason, so it made headlines.”
Foster's calf strain doesn't appear to be serious, and he's working hard to make the start of camp. He's been spending time in a hyperbaric chamber and has added chicken and fish to his diet, while previously a vegan. Even if Foster doesn't make the start of camp, indications are it wont be long into camp before he's back. He is likely a top-three pick in most fantasy leagues, and we have him as our number-two RB. While Foster, who will turn 27 this season, has been a workhorse, it's still a good idea to draft Ben Tate (ranked 77th) as the handcuff.
