NFL Rumors: Arian Foster says he’ll be ready for Houston Texans OTA’s


While most are understandably concerned about the durability of Arian Foster moving forward, given his position and injury issues, Foster himself thinks the concerns are silly.

Already stating earlier this week that his back surgery wasn’t a big deal, Foster stated that he will be completely ready for Houston Texans OTA’s.

RB Arian Foster said his back is fine and he will be ready for #Texans OTA’s.

Obviously that’s great news for both Foster and the Texans, but coming off a back operation, you’d probably like to see how you react to a constant pounding before making such a proclamation.

Regardless, Foster seems intent in getting back to his Pro Bowl talent level and proving those wrong who are doubting him and suggesting that he’s starting to hit the proverbial running back wall.

The 28-year-old should still see the field quite often, though the Texans did recently bring in Andre Brown to give their franchise running back an occasional breather.

Foster of course was limited to just eight games during the 2013 campaign.
