The injury Texans RB Arian Foster was dealing with wasn’t life threatening. It wasn’t even serious enough to keep the star running back off the practice field Wednesday.
Foster was in uniform and returned to action during the fifth day of training camp, after missing back-to-back sessions.
Foster's health is obviously a concern. He has missed 11 games in the last three years, but did play a full season in 2012 and no longer has Ben Tate to worry about. After finishing in the top 2 in fantasy points per game from 2010 to 2012, he was #19 in that category in 2013. There is a new regime in Houston, so Foster's usage is a bit up in the air. Still, he has been one of the most productive RBs in the league when healthy and is a candidate for a bounceback season.
