O’Brien doesn’t expect Foreman to play again this season
HOUSTON (AP) — Coach Bill O’Brien says he doesn’t expect D’Onta Foreman to play again this season, the latest blow to a Houston Texans team riddled with injuries.
Foreman sustained what the team called a left ankle injury on Sunday after scoring his second fourth-quarter touchdown in a 31-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals which ended a three-game skid.
O’Brien insisted on Monday that he didn’t have a lot of details on the running back’s injury but added that: “It probably doesn’t look great (for him) to be able to play.”
If Foreman can’t play again this season he’ll join defensive end J.J. Watt, linebacker Whitney Mercilus and quarterback Deshaun Watson on injured reserve.
Foreman, who won the Doak Walker Award last season at Texas as the top collegiate running back, has seen limited playing time this season. His best game came on Sunday when he ran for a career-high 65 yards with his first two touchdowns.
