Arian Foster exited Week 17 against the Jaguars with a knee injury and will not return.
The Texans also announced a hamstring issue for Foster. He was injured near the end of the first quarter and missed the final series of the opening quarter before heading to the locker room after the break. Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes are handling backfield duties. Before leaving, Foster rushed for 23 yards on five carries and caught a 10-yard touchdown. He wraps up the regular season with 1,246 yards and eight touchdowns on 260 carries, adding 327 yards and five touchdowns on 38 catches. Foster missed three games and parts of a couple others with injuries, but stayed relatively healthy and was a dominant RB1 when in the lineup. Foster has two more years on his contract.

Date:

Arian Foster rushed for 96 yards on 25 carries in the Texans' 25-13, Week 16 win over the Ravens.

He added 23 yards on one catch and even threw a five-yard touchdown as the Texans' do-it-all offensive centerpiece on Sunday. With Case Keenum drawing the start six days after signing off the Rams' practice squad, the Texans leaned heavily on Foster. He took snaps out of the Wildcat -- albeit without much success -- and tossed the Texans' only touchdown to C.J. Fiedorowicz on a toss play to the right. Foster and the 8-7 Texans have a faint pulse in the AFC playoff picture. They'll host the Jaguars in Week 17.
Dec 21 - 4:58 PM

Arian Foster (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, as expected.

Listed as probable, Foster was never in real doubt. Expect the Texans to ride him hard as they try to hide Case Keenum. Foster is a strong RB1 despite a tough matchup with the Ravens' elite front seven.
Dec 21 - 12:03 PM

Arian Foster (hip) returned to Texans practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Foster's Week 16 availability isn't believed to be in doubt. Even against the Ravens' stingy run defense, he's a high-end RB1 for the fantasy finals.
Dec 18 - 6:01 PM

Arian Foster (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

The Texans are listing Foster with a hip injury, but this is likely for rest purposes. Foster should be fine for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens.
Dec 17 - 5:43 PM

Arian Foster rushed 26 times for 99 yards and caught three passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss at Indy.

Although the Colts crowded the box heavily following Ryan Fitzpatrick's second-quarter injury, Foster powered his way through repeatedly. He remains one of the most talented backs in the league at finding holes and shedding contact. Foster also had a 25-yard TD run called back by a holding penalty. However, it's going to be extremely tough sledding in Week 16 with a brutal matchup against the Ravens and Tom Savage at quarterback. Foster will be more borderline RB1/2 than the no-brainer RB1 he normally is.
Dec 14 - 5:11 PM

Arian Foster (groin) is listed as probable for Week 15.

He practiced fully on Friday and will start Sunday at Indianapolis.
Dec 12 - 3:53 PM

Arian Foster (groin) returned to Texans practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Foster is in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Colts, who boast one of the league's leakier run defenses. Foster is a top-three RB1 for Week 15.
Dec 11 - 4:46 PM

Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

It's a rest day for Foster coming off his 24/127/1 line against Jacksonville. Foster will be a top-five running back play for Week 15.
Dec 10 - 5:38 PM

Arian Foster rushed 24 times for 127 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 21 yards in the Texans' Week 14 win over the Jaguars.

Foster's highlight run went for 51 yards in the first quarter, shoving away Jaguars FS Josh Evans with a powerful stiff arm. He was vultured at the one-yard line by Alfred Blue in the third quarter, but Foster executed his own goal-line score in the following frame. A yardage machine whenever healthy this season, Foster will remain a top-shelf RB1 against the Colts in Week 15.
Dec 7 - 4:12 PM

Arian Foster (groin) returned to Texans practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

"Came out well," Foster said of his Week 13 return. "All is good." Foster sat out of Wednesday's practice, but the Texans were just trying to manage his reps. There's little reason for Foster to be getting in full sessions at this stage of the season. He'll be a top-three RB1 against the Jaguars.
Dec 4 - 2:05 PM

Arian Foster rushed for 79 yards on 19 carries and caught five balls for 26 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 13 win over the Titans.

Foster shredded the Titans on the ground and converted a seven-yard reception for his first-quarter TD. Unfortunately for Foster's fantasy owners, Ryan Fitzpatrick wound up hogging all of the TDs in this game, throwing six of them. Expect a box-score bounce-back for Foster when the Texans face the Jaguars in Week 14. Alfred Blue finished Week 13 with just six yards on seven runs.
Nov 30 - 4:35 PM

Arian Foster (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 13 game against the Titans, as expected.

Four weeks since pulling his groin, Foster is back and the matchup couldn't be better. He's at home facing a Titans run defense that is arguably the worst in the entire league. When these two teams faced off in Week 8, Foster went for 173 total yards and three touchdowns. He's a an elite play in both season-long and daily formats.
Nov 30 - 12:11 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien reiterated Friday that he expects Arian Foster (groin, questionable) to play Sunday against Tennessee.

Foster's fantasy owners should be doing cartwheels right now because the Titans have arguably the leakiest run defense in the league. Foster participated in practice on some level every day this week, and the Texans' medical staff wouldn't be letting him back in the fold if he weren't close to full strength. He'll be a top-shelf RB1 in this cupcake matchup.
Nov 28 - 2:10 PM

Coach Bill O'Brien said he expects Arian Foster (groin) to play in Sunday's game against the Titans.

Always slow to recover from soft-tissue injuries, Foster hasn't played since Week 9. He's on track to start against a Titans team that's among the worst in the NFL in most run-defense metrics, putting him squarely in the top-5 running back conversation for the week. Alfred Blue still needs to be owned just in case Foster sustains a setback.
