After spending most of the past couple of weeks limited in practice, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson took a step back Wednesday. Perhaps it was a step with a bit of a limp. Both players missed the day's entire session. Foster has been nagged by a hamstring injury for the better part of two months and was sidelined in Week 3. He played Sunday against Buffalo but admittedly wasn't 100 percent and rus... [Read More]
