Texans Won’t Place RB Arian Foster On Short-Term I.R., Could Be Back In A Month

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Texans will not place RB Arian Foster on injured reserve with the designation to return, despite his groin injury.

  • Instead, Rapoport mentions that Foster could be back within a month.
  • Foster’s groin surgery reportedly went well and he’s worked hard to get back on the field, according to Rapoport.

The initial time table indicated that Foster could be out of the lineup for around two or three months, so this is very encouraging news for Houston.

Foster, 28, has another two years remaining on his five-year, $43.5 million contract that included $20.75 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $6 million and $6.5 million over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2014, Foster appeared in 13 games for the Texans and ran for 1,246 yards on 260 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with 38 receptions for 327 yards receiving and 13 total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 12 running back out of 57 qualifying players.
