As of now, there is no timeline for Houston Texans running back Arian Foster to come off the active/PUP list, and it’s unclear as to when he’ll be back at practice. Foster is recovering from an offseason calf injury. After missing all of camp as a result of calf and back injuries, it was thought he could return this week, even as soon as Monday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak said Sunday that doctors informed him that Foster needs a few more days off before he’s going to be ready to join his teammates at practice.
Foster has been prone to a lot of minor injuries throughout his NFL career, but it’s not believed that this is a serious issue. This all started when Foster suffered a calf strain during an offseason workout session with the team, and it was initially called a minor injury.
It’s clear now that it was anything but “minor”, and one has to assume that there’s more to the injury that the Texans aren’t revealing.
Foster leads the NFL in touches over the past three seasons, and led the NFL in 2012 rushing attempts.
