Arian Foster, the NFL's leading rusher, didn't start for the Houston Texans in Sunday's game against Oakland.
The Texans said Foster's absence was a "coach's decision."
Foster didn't play in the first quarter and was on the bench for the first drive of the second quarter. He entered the game with just under seven minutes remaining in the second quarter.
Owners were panicked, but Foster still delivered 187 yards and 2 TDs in two and a half quarters of play, while making a case for the #1 RB in fantasy football.
