Arian Foster a major doubt Texans vs Giants

Football News

Houston Texans star Arian Foster is apparently set to be touch and go as to whether he will be able to play against the New York Giants in week three.

According to the Texans' team injury report - and confirmed by others - Foster was extremely limited during practice on both Wednesday and Thursday and those limitations continued into Friday’s practice.

Serious Doubt

Houston do have serious doubts about whether or not the AFC's leading rusher for will be available as Bill O'Brien looks to continue his unbeaten start to life as head coach of the Texans, the NFL's worst franchise in 2013.

From the Twitter account of Texans reporter Deepi Sidhu:

"#Texans game status report has Arian Foster (hamstring), Ben Jones (ankle/knee), and D.J. Swearinger (elbow) listed as questionable vs. NYG"

"Foster and Swearinger were limited in practice all week. Ben Jones was limited earlier but did not practice today."

Starting Strong

Foster has started the early part of the season in top gear with 241 yards on 55 carries through two, giving a lot of hope to Texans fans and everyone else associated with the organization.

However, injuries are a big problem with Foster and his hamstring strain won't instil much confidence in those hoping his injury history is behind him.

If Foster isn't able to suit up and get out on the field on Sunday, then a lot of pressure goes on backups Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes to perform to a similar level against the Giants.
