Description: Texans running back Arian Foster left Sunday's game towards the end of the first quarter with a hamstring injury.
Insight: Foster missed the final series of the quarter as he went to the locker room. Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes will share the backfield duties while Foster is out. Blue already scored a rushing touchdown in the second quarter.
 
12/28/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster is active for Week 17.
Insight: There was a non-injury related issue that could have led Foster to missing Sunday's game versus th Jaguars, but that is not the case. Start him as you normally would.
 
12/21/2014 5:16:00 PM

12/14/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster just missed the 100-yard rushing bonus versus the Colts.
Insight: Foster had 99 rushing yards on 26 carries. He had plenty of opportunities with starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick leaving the game with a leg injury. Foster is still a RB1 no matter who plays quarterback for Houston.
 
12/7/2014 7:11:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster rushed for 127 yards in Week 14's win over the Jaguars.

11/30/2014 5:47:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster rushed for 79 yards on 19 carries.
Insight: When the quarterback throws for six touchdowns, it's kind of hard to expect much for the running game. At least Foster caught one of the scores from Ryan Fitzpatrick.
 
11/30/2014 12:02:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster is active for Week 13 against the Titans.
Insight: Foster should see a heavy workload and is a must-start even though he could reinjure his groin at any time. Alfred Blue moves to the fantasy bench, but do not drop him.
 
11/26/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster (groin) has a good chance to play, according to coach Bill O'Brien.

11/23/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster may be a game-time decision, but according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain, he'd be surprised if Foster plays in Week 12.
Insight: McClain is usually pretty good an analyzing the situation in Houston so fantasy owners better have an alternate plan in place. Foster is a RB1 if he plays, and Alfred Blue, his backup, is a decent RB2.
 
11/20/2014 4:44:00 PM
Description: Texans coach Bill O'Brien is calling Arian Foster a game-time decision according to the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: O'Brien said the same thing last week, and Foster came no where close to playing. His chances seem better for Week 12, but keep Alfred Blue stashed just in case. Foster is a RB1 if he plays, and Blue is a decent RB2.
 
11/19/2014 4:02:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster (groin) practiced on Wednesday.

11/15/2014 1:42:00 PM

11/14/2014 1:34:00 PM
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster (groin) won't play, according to Jayson Braddock of 790 Houston.
Insight: While he looked likely to play early in the week, that optimism has dipped over the last day or so. Still, we have no official word on the subject other than he'll be a "game-time" decision. Alfred Blue needs to be owned in all leagues, as he will have RB2 potential, if Foster sits.
