Texans RB Arian Foster out until training camp

The Texans are making the wise move and playing it safe with their franchise running back. Arian Foster @ArianFoster strained his calf during Tuesday's practice. He made it off the field under his own power before being carted off to the locker room, and head coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday that Foster is going to be held out until training camp.
Kubiak said, via Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle, that Foster has a "pretty good calf strain" and is currently on crutches but is "going to be fine" when training camp opens in about two months.

Fantasy Analysis:

People can fret about Foster's injury history -- he dealt with multiple knee injuries in college and had that "anti-awesomeness" hamstring episode back in 2011, which cost him three games. But I'm not too worried here. The Texans are doing the right thing, and Foster should be more than raring to go soon. He is the second player off your standard draft board.
