The Texans said Thursday they pulled running back Arian Foster out of practice as a "precaution." Perhaps it was something more than that.
Foster's sore knee held him out of Friday's entire practice, and he is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins. According to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain, head coach Gary Kubiak said he is "optimistic" Foster will play.
Here is a Texas-sized worry for the fantasy world. Well, unless you have Ben Tate , who stands to see a ton of work if Foster is not well enough to go; Tate would automatically become an RB2.
Foster underwent an MRI on his knee Thursday. The team says it came back clean, but obviously we would have liked to hear that Foster did something today. But he did nothing. Come back here Sunday morning to find out if Foster is active. Until then, Foster owners should go through life with a pair of crossed fingers.
