Texans running back Arian Foster was apparently over his hamstring issue when he practiced Wednesday after missing a couple of days. Apparently not. Foster has not practiced since. Although the exact reason for his absence hasn't been disclosed, it's believed to be about that troublesome hamstring.
Wide receiver Andre Johnson is also dealing with his own hamstring injury. He suffered it on Monday. Despite not practicing, Johnson is holding out hope that he will play in the Texans' first preseason game, Aug. 9 versus the Cardinals.
I'm probably worried more about Foster because the tribulations with his hamstrings are more recent, and he's been hurt more often in general.. Remember that he missed the final eight games of last season with a back injury while Johnson has played in every game since 2012. If these guys have to miss a preseason game or two, I won't be terribly concerned. If this lingers into Week 3, some adjustments need to be made to the rankings. This is why you shouldn't draft your fantasy teams until the final week of August at the earliest.
You must be aware that Foster's backup is Andre Brown . And DeAndre Hopkins stands to gain if Johnson misses any regular-season action.
