Texans coach Bill O'Brien referred to Arian Foster (hamstring) on Monday as "day to day."

Foster himself acknowledged he wasn't 100 percent in Sunday's win over the Bills, managing six yards on eight carries. He'll likely continue to be limited in practice all week, before being a game-time decision on Sunday morning. The Texans face the Cowboys in a 1PM ET game this week.
Sep 29 - 5:20 PM

Following Sunday's win over the Bills, Arian Foster (hamstring) admitted he "just wasn't 100 percent healthy out there."

Foster rushed eight times for six yards while playing on just 54.1 percent of the snaps, but did salvage his box score a bit with seven catches for 55 yards. The good news is he appeared to avoid a setback with this hamstring issue that's been bothering him for two months. If Foster can get anywhere near 100 percent, he'll have a plus matchup against the Cowboys in Week 5.

Andre Johnson said the ankle injury that briefly sidelined him Sunday is "fine."

"I was more scared than anything because I felt a pop, so I went in and got checked," Johnson said. We never like to hear about pops, but Johnson did come back into the game so we'll consider him day to day at worst. He finished with 6-71-0 on seven targets.
Sep 28 - 6:37 PM

Garrett Graham caught three passes for 28 yards in Week 4 against the Bills.

He was targeted five times. Graham is on pace for just 36 catches and 380 yards this season, but should be more involved going forward now that he's healthy. He was used in an every-down role, with C.J. Fiedorowicz playing in two tight-end sets. Graham will be on the TE2 radar for a matchup with the Cowboys in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 6:25 PM

Alfred Blue had nine carries for nine yards in Week 4 against the Bills.

With Arian Foster playing through a hamstring injury, Blue was used in a committee and finished with more carries. He added two catches for 16 yards on three targets. Blue is a must-own handcuff for Foster owners. The Texans take on the Cowboys in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 6:22 PM

DeAndre Hopkins had five catches for 64 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 4 win over Buffalo.

Hopkins beat Corey Graham for a 35-yard touchdown at the end of the first half. He finished with just six targets despite Andre Johnson missing time with an ankle injury. Hopkins is on pace for a 72/1,124/12 line through four games and will remain a WR3 with a matchup against the Cowboys in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 6:03 PM

Arian Foster totaled 61 yards on 15 touches in Sunday's Week 4 win over Buffalo.

Foster was held to six yards on eight carries, but was targeted 10 times by checkdown artist Ryan Fitzpatrick. He was clearly running at half-speed and looked sluggish throughout the game. Alfred Blue was used in a committee and finished with more rushing attempts. Foster is on pace for 252 carries, 996 yards, and four touchdowns through four weeks. He should outperform those numbers provided he stays healthy. Foster has a plus matchup against the Cowboys in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 5:07 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 25-of-37 passes for 268 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Bills.

Fitzpatrick's only notable play was a 35-yard touchdown to DeAndre Hopkins at the end of the first half. He managed the Texans to a win without any help from Arian Foster or the running game, with Houston totaling just 37 rush yards. Andre Johnson also missed most of the second half with an ankle injury. Fitzpatrick is on pace for 3,608 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions through four weeks.
Sep 28 - 4:55 PM

Andre Johnson left Sunday's Week 4 game against the Bills with an ankle injury.

Johnson came up lame on a pass in the fourth quarter and was taken to the locker room. He was able to jog off under his own power and later returned to the game. Johnson finished with six catches for 71 yards on seven targets.

According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, Arian Foster (hamstring) is moving with a slight limp during warmups.

Per Breer, the Texans will "monitor his hamstring early in the game, determine his workload from there." It's similar to what was reported by beat writer Tania Ganguli, who said Foster's carry count will depend on how his hamstring holds up. It's risky considering this is a chronic issue that's Foster has been battling for two months, but there's no way for owners to know if he'll aggravate. We still have him as a borderline RB1 play.
Sep 28 - 12:40 PM

Arian Foster (hamstring) is active for Week 4 against the Bills.

Foster will be available for a full workload after sitting out last week. He's Rotoworld's No. 12 running back against the Bills' top-five run defense. Inactive for the Texans are QB Tom Savage, OLB Jadeveon Clowney, S Shiloh Keo, CB AJ Bouye, WR Devier Posey, S Eddie Pleasant, and OT Jeff Adams.
Sep 28 - 11:33 AM

According to the Houston Chronicle, Arian Foster will "definitely" play in Sunday's game against the Bills.

The chronic hamstring issue Foster has been battling for two months is good to go. "Foster would't be active if he wasn't 100 percent. That means he'll get a full workload," says veteran Texans reporter John McClain. Bill O'Brien has shown no hesitancy to saddle up Foster early in the season, giving him 55 carries in the first two weeks.
Sep 28 - 11:03 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Arian Foster (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against the Bills.

That's two positive reports on Foster within the past 12 hours. He's still likely to be a game-time decision, but all signs are pointing toward Foster starting after missing last week's game. Buffalo has been pretty stout against the run this season, allowing the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Foster is a back-end RB1. We'll know his official status in a couple hours.
Sep 28 - 8:45 AM

The Houston Chronicle expects Arian Foster (questionable, hamstring) to play in Week 4 against the Bills.

Foster is still a game-time decision and will need to go through pre-game warmups before he's cleared. He was reportedly close to playing last week and ended up being held out. If Foster plays, he could see his workload scaled back, with Alfred Blue getting touches as a change-of-pace. Texans-Bills is a 1PM ET start, so we'll know Foster's status early on Sunday.
Sep 27 - 7:19 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) is probable for Week 4.

Johnson will be fine for Sunday's matchup with the Bills. He's Rotoworld's No. 12 receiver this week.
