Texans | Not worried about Arian Foster

Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith is not worried that RB Arian Foster's (calf) injury will linger into the regular season. "We want to make sure that he is totally 100 percent ready. So he's very close," Smith said. "We are just making sure that he is ready to go when we let him loose. We are being cautious and taking that slowly, but I have no worries that that is going to be something that he is going to have to deal with." The team placed Foster on the Physically Unable to Perform list as a precaution.

Fantasy Tip: Foster has slipped a bit in early drafts this year, and the worry about a heavy workload in his short career is legitimate. Even though Foster will continue to be the focal point of the offense, they've admitted that they'd like to lighten the load on him a bit. He's still a first-round talent, but he's going near the middle of the first round now.
