Texans RB Arian Foster practiced for the first time since his 2013 season ended prematurely because of a back injury that required surgery.
“He’s cleared,” new HC Bill O’Brien said of Foster, who missed eight games a year ago. “He looked good. He looked fine.”
Foster won't have to contend with Ben Tate, but the Texans signed Andre Brown to be his backup and he has a new offense to learn. At 27, Foster should have plenty of tread left on his tires, though the injuries seem to be piling up. Through the first six weeks he was the #7 RB while averaging 13.9 fantasy points. He should be a solid low-end RB1 available around the 1/2 turn, though injuries will continue to be a concern.
