Texans RB Arian Foster pulls hamstring, RB Ben Tate battling rib injury

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster @ArianFoster re-aggravated a hamstring pull Sunday. There aren't any indictions it is serious, and Foster believes he could be ready after the Texans' Week 8 bye. The 27-year-old back was limited to just four carries for 11 yards against the Chiefs. Backup Ben Tate @BenTateRB didn't offer much either, rushing for 50 yards on 15 carries as he continues to battle a rib injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

The guy to own here might be undrafted free agent rookie Cierre Wood. The former Notre Dame runner sealed the No. 3 RB job over the summer and has played very little since then. With Case Keenum starring at quarterback, Wood getting significant touches in the immediate short-term isn't out of the question. As for Foster and Tate, you'll have to monitor their statuses leading up to Week 9. Tate should be good-to-go and Foster might need some extra rest. We'll have to wait and see.
