ESPN: HOUSTON — Texans running back Arian Foster was taken off the physically unable to perform list Wednesday and practiced with the team for the first time since the start of training camp.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Foster did well in his first practice back.
“He looked good, he looked fresh to me, he looked quick,” Kubiak said. “The biggest thing is he had a smile on his face with his reps and he felt positive. We’ll go in and see how he feels after practice and hopefully we take a bunch of steps forward this week.”
8/21… Foster is finally back at practice. Good news for fantasy owners as Foster has been plummeting down draft boards over the past few days. It is sounding like Foster will not see any preseason action… which poses the question as to whether or not he opens the season in the Texans backfield as the starter. There is also the risk of an early season injury, which seems more commonplace in training camp/preseason holdouts and limited players… think back to Revis’ pulled hammy a few years back after the hold out.
Of course… Foster could also start week 1 and run for 150 yards and 2 TDs and nobody would be surprised.
