Texans' Foster out against Browns, Blue to start

BY Shawn Ramsey • November 16, 2014

Listed as questionable heading into the week, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns due to a groin injury.

Foster suffered the injury against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 9, and the Texans had hoped the running back could recover with the bye week in Week 10, however it appears he is a no-go in Cleveland Sunday.

Foster has missed only one other game this season, in Week 3 against the New York Giants. The Texans were dominated in that game by a score of 30-17 without the services of their star running back. 

Rookie Alfred Blue will get the start at running back in place of the injured Foster.
