Arian Foster and Andre Johnson return to practice, listed as probable


 

This Houston Texans team has been one of the leagues biggest surprises.

Last season this team was running through most of their opponents and winning games out right. That play action fake from Matt Schaub was nasty, which led him to find Andre Johnson a couple times down first for big gains.

This season? Not so much. It’s come to the point where fans are harassing their once beloved starting quarterback and making a mockery of the man. One man who wouldn’t stand for it, is running back Arian Foster.

Foster spoke to the media and said it was distasteful on how the fans were cheering Schaub once they realized he was hurt. Foster himself was hurt and out for awhile before the regular season.

Arian was eased back into work but eventually came back full force. This week he returned to practice and was officially listed as probably for Week sevens match up against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.

I don’t expect him to miss the game, so have no fear, Foster is here.

The other man listed as probable for Sunday’s showdown against the undefeated Chiefs is wide receiver Andre Johnson. He will be in the starting lineup after dealing with a shin injury.

He’s still Houston’s primary receiver. These two offensive veterans are going to have to step up with a new quarterback under center for the injured Schaub.
