News: Foster, the NFL's second leading rusher, was not active for the Texans' game against the New York Giants on Sunday. Impact: Foster was limited by a hamstring injury at practice this past week and was listed as questionable Friday. He worked out in the end zone before the kickoff. Foster had carried 55 times for 241 yards and a touchdown in Houston's first two games. Rookie Alfred Blue replaced him in the starting lineup. He gained 40 yards on 12 carries. (STATS, 10:52am)

News: Foster (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Impact: Foster was questionable coming into the game after limited practices all week and he just didn't show enough in warmups to risk playing while banged up. Alfred Blue is expected to lead the backfield, with Jonathan Grimes and Ronnie Brown also likely to get touches.(RotoWire, )

News: According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Foster (hamstring) looks like a long-shot to play Sunday against the Giants. Impact: We'll have confirmation of Foster's status, either way, in advance of the wave of first kickoffs Sunday, but in the event that Foster is unavailable, Alfred Blue would appear to be next in line for the Texans' carries, with Jonathan Grimes and Ronnie Brown also candidates to see added touches.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 19, 2014
News: Foster (hamstring), who was limited at practice this week, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, according to ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports. Impact: Fortunately for those who hope to use Foster (who has recorded a league-high 55 carries to date) in Week 3, the Texans kick off at 1:00 ET on Sunday. Next up for carries in the event that Foster is limited at all Sunday, or scratched, are Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 18, 2014
News: Foster (hamstring) was limited at Thursday's practice, John McClain of The Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Foster doesn't seem to be in much danger of missing Sunday's game against the Giants, but his Friday injury status will still be worth keeping an eye on. He has a league-high 55 carries through two games, and Texans coach Bill O'Brien acknowledged that the team may need to spread the carries around a bit more as the season wears on.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: Foster (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports. Impact: Foster checks in with a league-high 55 carries to date, with his limitations at practice Wednesday presumably maintenance-related.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 16, 2014
News: Head coach Bill O'Brien said the coaching staff is paying attention to Foster's workload and may "spread the carries around a bit more" as the season moves forward, CSN Houston reports. "Certainly when you look at one player getting a ton of carries, that's something that you have to pay attention to as a staff," O'Brien said. Impact: Foster has carried the load out of the Texans' backfield in the first two games -- he has 55 of the 74 rushing attempts by Houston running backs. While O'Brien plans to moderate the workload as the team moves forward, he maintains they are doing what's necessary to win football games right now. It doesn't sound like Foster owners need to worry about Alfred Blue or Jonathan Grimes stealing carries in the short term unless an injury crops up.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 15, 2014
News: Foster had 138 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries in Sunday's win over Oakland. Impact: That's two 100-yard efforts this season to match his 2013 total.(STATS, 4:58pm)
Sep 14, 2014
News: Foster (ribs) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Impact: Following a 27-carry workload in Week 1 against Washington, Foster remains solidified as the team's No. 1 RB option, provided he remains healthy.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: Foster (ribs) carried the ball 28 times for 138 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's 30-14 win at Oakland. He also caught 2-of-3 targets for 12 yards. Impact: Foster has been a beast through the first two weeks, although his workload has been heavy, racking up 55 carries. His knack for the end zone and receiving ability make him an incredible option in any format, assuming he can stay healthy.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Foster (ribs) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Impact: Foster is good to go this week, and he's locked in as the team clear-cut No. 1 back, following a 27-carry workload in Week 1 against Washington. Meanwhile, backups Jonathan Grimes and Alfred Blue each logged just one carry in the contest.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 10, 2014
News: Foster was a full participant at Wednesday's practice but showed up on the injury report with a rib injury, CSN Houston reports. Impact: Foster was a Week 1 workhorse, carrying the ball 27 times and catching two passes in a win over the Redskins. We presume the rib injury is a minor issue, though it's something to monitor in the coming days.(RotoWire, )
Sep 7, 2014
News: Foster had 27 carries for 103 rushing yards and two catches on two targets for 17 receiving yards Sunday against the Redskins. Impact: Foster's 3.7 yards per carry average wasn't great, but he absolutely dominated the touches out of the backfield, with Jonathan Grimes and Alfred Blue each getting only one carry and neither recording a single target. The Texans had a comfortable lead for much of the game, which helped Foster's carry-total, though it's possible he'll be heavily-used again in Week 2, as the Texans face a Raiders team that allowed 6.2 yards per carry to the Jets on Sunday.(RotoWire, )
