Texans general manager Brian Gaine expressed concern about running back Donta Foreman being ready for Week 1.
"Work in progress right now, recovering from this injury," Gaine said. "We need a little bit more time to determine if he's going to be ready for the season. We're not there at that stage. We think he's getting better. He's improving, but time will tell whether he's available to us when we kick off."
This news does not seem promising for Foreman's Week 1 status, and he is still a candidate to open up the year on the PUP list, which would keep him sidelined for six weeks. When he does get on the field, he will be facing an uphill battle given what we know about the nature of Achilles injuries. There is very little that should stop Lamar Miller from being a workhorse to open the season. He is still going as the No. 26 running back in fantasy drafts.
