Texans RB Donta Foreman 'light-years ahead' of last year

The Texans could have used Donta Foreman last season. They plan to use him a lot this season.

Foreman spent 2018 rehabbing from an Achilles’ tear, playing only one game and getting only nine touches. He’s healthy now, so the Texans expect to get the best version of Foreman.

“He’s light-years ahead of where he was last year at this time, coming off the injury and everything,” Texans running backs coach Danny Barrett said last month, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “I still think he’s continuing to work hard. I think he’s had a good offseason to date. The time away from here, I thought was well spent for himself. Getting ready to go physically, and I think mentally, right now, is what I look at is each and every day."

The Athletic’s Aaron Reiss, who covers the Texans, said recently, “Lamar Miller will remain the team’s lead back.” Miller is a good target for owners who go WR-heavy early in the draft or are looking for a third RB in the sixth round.
