Bill O'Brien: Arian Foster 'working hard to get back'
Arian Foster's future with the Houston Texans may be in question, but his commitment to returning to the field is not.
Foster missed 12 games in 2015 after suffering a pair of injuries, including a season-ending torn Achilles in October. Houston head coach Bill O'Brien said the veteran running back has been diligently working to get healthy.
“He’s been in our building quite a bit working hard to get back,” O’Brien said. “He’s a really good guy, good teammate, missed being out there, obviously he wanted to be out there helping us. He’s been a great player for the Houston Texans. He’s working hard to get back.”
But whether he makes it back as a member of the Texans remains to be seen.
Foster will turn 30 next season and carries a salary cap number of $8.925 million. His age, salary and durability concerns may well place his roster spot in jeopardy.
The four-time Pro Bowl is Houston's all-time leading rusher, having run for 6,472 yards over his seven-year career.
