Texans GM Brian Gaine said he is "hoping" D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') will be ready for the start of training camp.
"Foreman is going through the recovery phase from his injury last year," Gaine said. "So, we are hoping that he will be back here when we get ready to put the pads back on. We will manage that and massage that as we go forward." Gaine had previously said the Texans expect Foreman ready for Week 1, but a report last month suggested Foreman could start the year on reserve/PUP. It's possible Foreman is crushing his rehab and may be ready earlier than expected. The Texans didn't draft a running back in the draft two weekends back. May 7 - 8:00 PM

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman could begin the season on the reserve/PUP list.

That would make him unavailable for the team's first six regular season games. Foreman tore his Achilles in November but has since been setback-free and rumored to be ready for Week 1. A healthy preseason would not only prove his readiness for the regular season, it could also allow Foreman to open 2018 in a starting role over teammate Lamar Miller.

Texans GM Brian Gaine expects D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) to be ready for Week 1.

Foreman has been setback-free three months into his rehab. He's questionable for training camp, but the Texans are optimistic he'll be ready for the start of the season. Foreman was outplaying Lamar Miller before missing the final six games. A healthy preseason could allow Foreman to open 2018 in a starting role.

ESPN’s Sarah Barshop expects D'Onta Foreman to push for a starting role this season.

With Lamar Miller coming off a down 2017, Foreman is in line for more touches after a strong rookie year. Foreman is three months removed from tearing his Achilles' but is hoping to be cleared for training camp. The Texans run game was a weak point after losing Foreman and Deshaun Watson. Foreman has a chance to overtake Miller when healthy.

D'Onta Foreman had all charges dismissed from his July arrest.

With all charges being dismissed, Foreman's agent said the NFL will not pursue disciplinary action. This is good news for a player who showed a lot of promise as a rookie. Coming off a torn Achilles', Foreman will try to be ready for training camp.

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.

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.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 08:06:00 PM

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.
Sun, Oct 15, 2017 05:38:00 PM

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.
Fri, Oct 13, 2017 03:19:00 PM

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.
