Arian Foster expects to play after bye week

During the game between the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, running back Arian Foster left the game in the first quarter with a hamstring injury. He was already dealing with a hamstring problem, which caused him to miss practice for parts of the week prior to the game. However, the future looks bright for the star running back in terms of returning to the field soon.


Arian Foster said he expects to be ready to play against the Indianapolis Colts in two weeks following Houston’s bye week.

“It’s coming along good,” Foster said.

Asked if the injury consisted of any tears, Foster said he didn’t know.

At the time of his injury, the Texans were already dealing with issues, as quarterback Matt Schaub was benched for third stringer Case Keenum, who didn’t do so bad in his NFL debut on Sunday. Once removed from the game, Foster was replaced by back up running back Ben Tate, however that didn’t last long either. Tate was injured in the game as well, as he had hurt his ribs.

The Texans are on a bye for week 8 but will return to action in week 9 when they take on the Indianapolis Colts. Hopefully for all you fantasy owners who have Foster, he is able to recover faster than expected and be ready for a solid performance against the Colts.
