Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was carted off the field late in Sunday’s 44-26 blowout loss to the Miami Dolphins with the what the team said was an Achilles injury.

Foster was hurt without contact late in the fourth quarter with the Texans down 44-20. The severity of the injury was not immediately known.

The seven-year veteran had 18 carries for 59 yards Sunday, along with five receptions for 66 yards. Foster scored two touchdowns in the loss.

The injury is the latest setback for Foster, who missed Houston’s first three games of the season while recovering from groin surgery early in training camp.
