Arian Foster could need back surgery; may miss remainder of season

The Houston Texans have already ruled running back Arian Foster out for their Week 10 match up, but it looks like he could end up missing plenty of more time. There is no exact diagnosis for Foster or a timetable for his return, but a recent report could cause some concern among the team and their fan base.

From Texans reporter John McClain of the Houston Chronicle:

Without Foster, Ben Tate will carry the load with some help from rookie Dennis Johnson. Deji Karim will serve as the team’s No. 3 running back.

The Texans season has already been off to a disappointing start, so if they are without Foster the rest of the way they will need to kiss any chances of their turnaround and late season run goodbye.
