News: Foster (hamstring) did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos. Impact: It was unclear whether Foster would play, and the Texans opted to proceed cautiously. Twenty-eight-years-old as of Sunday, the veteran running back participated in three joint practices with the Broncos this week, indicating that he should be ready for Week 1. If Foster suffers a setback or new injury, Jonathan Grimes has emerged as the second man on the depth chart, followed by Alfred Blue.(RotoWire, )

News: Foster completed three days of joint practices with the Broncos and prompted coach Bill O'Brien to call him "very impressive," the Texans' official site reports. O'Brien was particularly impressed with Foster's ability as a receiver out of the backfield. Impact: The coach didn't say whether or not Foster would play in Saturday night's preseason game against Denver and will huddle with trainers and coaches before making a decision. It makes sense Foster will get into his first game action of the preseason, but the coaches might feel he got in enough competitive action in his three practice days with the Broncos.(RotoWire, )

News: Foster increased his activity during Tuesday's practice, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Foster ran primarily with the first-team offense during the first of three joint practices with the Broncos.(RotoWire, )

News: Foster, who did not play in Saturday's preseason game against Atlanta, had Jonathan Grimes once again start in his place for the Texans. Impact: This was expected, as Foster only returned to practice this week, following an extended absence due to a hamstring injury. We'll be worried if he doesn't play next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Foster, who had missed several days of training camp with a hamstring injury, was on the practice field for a second consecutive day Thursday, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Head coach Bill O'Brien said Foster was "closer to being full time," but stopped short of saying the running back would play this weekend against the Falcons.(RotoWire, )

News: Foster (hamstring) suited up for Wednesday's practice, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Though we'd expect Foster to be eased back into action during the Texans' joint practices with the Falcons on Wednesday and Thursday, coach Bill O'Brien previously indicated that there's a possibility that the running back could suit up for Saturday's preseason contest against Atlanta. When healthy, Foster is in line to serve as the Texans' top back, but in the wake of Andre Brown's release -- as well as some other moves by the team at the running back position -- the Texans' No. 2 RB slot is up for grabs, with the team's current unofficial depth chart now listing Jonathan Grimes and Alfred Blue behind Foster, followed by newcomers Ronnie Brown and William Powell.(RotoWire, )
