So this happened: On the very first play of team drills, Texans running back Arian Foster injured his leg and left practice with head coach Gary Kubiak later described the issue as a calf strain. After watching a few minutes of practice, Foster was carted to the locker room, though initially reporting make it appear this was done for precautionary reasons. In the context of Houston's two remaining OTA sessions, Foster is day-to-day.
Between this and the MJD news, not a great day for projected fantasy running backs. In this case, there is obviously plenty of time for rest and recovery in case the strain is something slightly more serious. There is little need for the Texans to push him back into action this week. Foster is the No.1 fantasy RB among mortals (which excludes Adrian Peterson, obviously) with Ben Tate a worthy handcuff, but little more than that unless...Nah, we won't even imagine the worst.
