Texans running back Arian Foster will have to forego the rest of training camp and preseason as he goes under the knife to repair a torn groin muscle.
Foster suffered the injury on Monday, the first full pads day, on a passing play and could miss several regular season games. The franchsie has made no moves to bring any other backs in.
“We didn’t make a move immediately because we felt like we were OK,” Texans general manager Rick Smith said. “Chris Polk is on the mend and so hopefully he’ll be back soon. We’ll just keep adjusting to whatever happens out here on the field.”
The Texans open the preseason against the SanFrancisco 49er’s. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today.
Arian Foster on offense and J.J. Watt on defense. If only the Jacksonville Jaguars had that to deal with, but the Houston Texans brought all guns blazing. Foster ran for 149 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown and Ryan Fitzpatrick was a smoking 13-19 for 135 yards and a rushing touchdown.
“We are in a must-win situation now,” star defensive end J.J. Watt said. Watt finished the game with 3 sacks and 5 QB hits. “We have strung two together and we need to continue to do it. We need to go on the road (at Indy) and try to do it again this week.”
As Watt said, his Texans are on the road next week facing the hot Indianapolis Colts this week. The Colts have reeled off three wins in a row, defeating the Cleveland Browns yesterday on a last minute drive orchestrated by Andrew Luck.
Tickets for the Texans/Colts game are still available so be sure to get yours now and help cheer on your Houston Texans!
The Houston Texans will close the season against the Tennessee Titans this Sunday afternoon. It has been a long and painful season for the Texans going from first to worst from last season to this.
The team can expect to be without their standout cornerback Jonathan Joseph who suffered a season ending torn toe ligament against the Denver Broncos. Joseph joins FB Brad Smelley, RB Deji Karim and running backs Arian Foster and Ben Tate.
Great seats and tickets are still available for the season finale.
