Foster out against Bengals, Blue to start for second-straight week

BY Shawn Ramsey • November 23, 2014

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is inactive Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals with a groin injury.

Foster, who is the NFL's third leading rusher this season with 822 yards, also missed last week's matchup in Cleveland against the Browns.

With Foster sidelined again, the Texans will turn to rookie running back Alfred Blue to start in his place. Houston is hoping for a repeat performance from Week 11 which Blue ran for a franchise-record 36 times for 156 yards in the win over the Browns. 

Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson will also sit out against Cincinnati with a knee injury. A.J. Buoy will start in his place.
