NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports D'Onta Foreman suffered a torn Achilles' Week 11 against the Cardinals.
Foreman will have an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis, but it looks like the rookie's season is over. It is a tough break for a player who suffered the injury on an explosive 34-yard touchdown, a play which gave him his best day as a pro. With Foreman out, Lamar Miller's role should be secure the rest of the way. Sun, Nov 19, 2017 05:02:00 PM

D'Onta Foreman exited Week 11 against the Cardinals with a left ankle injury.

After doing next to nothing in the first half, Foreman came to life during a long drive at the end of the third quarter, gaining 43 yards on nine touches and finishing things off with a three-yard score. He did even better on his next touch, getting the corner and out-running the defense for a 34-yard touchdown, but he stepped awkwardly on his way into the end zone and had to be carted off the field with a left ankle injury. Perhaps the injury is not a serious as it looked, but it is a terrible blow for a rookie on his way to his best game as a pro. Foreman was on crutches in the locker room after the game.

D'Onta Foreman rushed seven times for 18 yards in the Texans' Week 10 loss to the Rams.

Foreman actually got the start and seemed to rotate fairly evenly with Lamar Miller early, but Miller was much more effective. Both ended up losing snaps to Alfred Blue late in the game. Once a high-upside handcuff in a great offense, Foreman can be left on the wire in most redraft leagues.

D'Onta Foreman rushed 11 times for 37 yards in the Texans' Week 9 loss to the Colts.

Foreman bounced back to his regular usage after he was mysteriously mothballed in last week's loss to the Seahawks. Lamar Miller out-snapped, out-touched and out-gained Foreman as the Texans adjusted to life without Deshaun Watson, but Foreman should continue to see 10-12 weekly touches as the Texans do their best to hide Tom Savage.

D'Onta Foreman hopes to resume his role as the No. 2 back this week.

Freeman took a backseat to Alfred Blue in the fallout of the Bob McNair controversy. He rebounded with a strong week of practice, and could retake his role behind Lamar Miller. Foreman was effective before his benching, averaging 4.1 YPC with double-digit touches in 4-of-6 games. In a Tom Savage led offense, the Texans are going to need to lean on the run in the second half.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said D'Onta Foreman's demotion was not because he skipped practice Friday.

Foreman skipped practice along with DeAndre Hopkins on Friday after team owner Bob McNair's "inmates" comment came to light. Hopkins went on to have a career day in Seattle, but Foreman was limited to just one snap and took a clear backseat to Alfred Blue in the backup job. O'Brien said the demotion was because Blue had been practicing better, and Foreman also said the lack of playing time had nothing to do with him skipping Friday. If the coach is telling the truth, Foreman can be safely dropped in redraft leagues.

D'Onta Foreman did not touch the ball in the Texans' Week 8 loss to the Seahawks.

Foreman did not see a snap until midway through the third quarter – it may have been his only snap of the game – and he was clearly behind Alfred Blue in the pecking order. It is not clear if this was a one-game demotion based on him skipping practice Friday or a sign of things to come. Regardless, Lamar Miller is locked in as the No. 1 back.

D'Onta Foreman carried 12 times for 59 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Browns.

Foreman ripped off a long 39-yard jaunt late in the second quarter that set up the Texans' third touchdown of the game before the half. The rookie has now carried 50 times for 207 yards on the campaign. He remains nothing more than a handcuff and/or bench stash in fantasy.

D'Onta Foreman (hip) wasn't listed on the Texans' final injury report for Week 6 against the Browns.

Foreman was limited with a hip injury earlier this week but returned to full practice on Friday. He could see a decent workload this week if the Texans, who are huge favorites against the Browns, look to burn clock in the second half.

D'Onta Foreman (hip) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Reverting to clear No. 2 status behind Lamar Miller, Foreman won't see enough work to be a viable RB4 this weekend.

D’Onta Foreman (hip) was limited at Wedneday's practice.

This could explain why Foreman saw just four touches last week. The limited practice suggests he should play through his hip issue.

D’Onta Foreman had four carries for 34 yards in Week 5 against Kansas City.

Foreman got off to a rough start, fumbling on his second snap of the game. He bounced back with a 25-yard run on his next carry, but fell out of the gameplan with the Texans playing from behind. Foreman ended his three-week streak of double-digit touches. He's trending down going into Week 6, but Forman could have some standalone value in a matchup with Cleveland.

D'Onta Foreman rushed 13 times for 45 yards in the Texans' Week 4 win over the Titans.

Lamar Miller (23) resumed clear lead-back duties in this one, but Foreman remained heavily involved as an inside-the-tackles banger off the bench. Foreman now has double-digit touches in three straight games. In a suddenly explosive Texans offense, Foreman needs to be rostered in all 12- and 14-team leagues.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 04:31:00 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien views D'Onta Foreman as an every-down back.

Foreman is trending up with double-digit touches the last two weeks. He’s looked better than expected in the pass game and would have a workhorse role if Lamar Miller went down. Foreman doesn’t have a ton of standalone value, but remains one of the top handcuffs.
Sat, Sep 30, 2017 05:31:00 PM

D'Onta Foreman rushed eight times for 25 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 65 yards in the Texans' Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

Foreman continues to see a big workload behind starter Lamar Miller, and he now has seen double-digit touches in back-to-back games. He could not get much going on the ground in this one, but he gained 65 yards on two dump offs. The rookie is not going to have much standalone value behind Miller, but he is worth having on the roster in deeper leagues.
