Kubiak: Arian Foster's calf is "fine"

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Texans RB Arian Foster was supposed to be ready for the start of practice July 26, but it is going on three weeks now and he’s still on the physically unable to perform list with calf and back issues.

“Any time guys aren’t on the field, you’re concerned (about) when they get back. But as far as are we concerned about him at this point, no, we know what we’re going through,” Gary Kubiak said. “We know where we’re at, so we’ve got time.

“Do I want him out here? Yes. He needs to work to get ready for the season, and I think we’re awful close to doing that.”

While recuperating from the calf injury, Foster developed a sore back.

“I think his calf is fine, but his back’s bothering him a little,” Kubiak said. “There’s some tightness in his back, and we’re trying to find the right moment to get started in the process."

Fantasy Impact: 

We're generally not concerned about Foster's status for Week 1, but it would nice to see him healthy and practicing. We currently have him ranked #5 in PPR formats, but that tier of RBs is very tight.
