The start of the regular season is fast approaching and there are still some concerns about Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, who has been battling a hamstring injury. Foster hasn’t played in either the Texans second or third preseason games because of the issues.
Texans head coach Bill O’Brien suggested Sunday that Foster could play in the team’s preseason finale. Starters don’t typically see a lot of time in the preseason finales, and while Foster has missed a lot of preseason reps he doesn’t necessarily need them. Adrian Peterson hasn’t played in the preseason in years and it is working out for him.
O’Brien did add that Foster would be ready for the regular season however.
“It’s possible. “We haven’t sat down and talked about that one yet. But, yeah, it’s possible,” O’Brien said, via the Houston Chronicle.
O’Brien added: “Arian had some good practices against Denver, so I feel like he had a productive week there. Regardless of what we do Thursday night, he’ll be ready to play.”
