The Houston Texans managed their first win of the 2015 NFL season at the weekend, but it wasn't a cause for celebration.

Slow Start

The Texans edged past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, arguably one of the worst team in the league, and are clinging on to a shed of respectability with their 1-2 record that has seen them lose to the Kansas City Chiefs and Carolina Panthers, two teams who could both miss the playoffs this year.

The Texans need some good news right now, and it looks like they've got it, with head coach Bill O'Brien giving an encouraging update on star running back Arian Foster.

Foster Returning?

O'Brien was speaking to reporters yesterday when he revealed that Foster could be close to making a return.

“I think we’re close,” O’Brien said Monday, according to  the Texans official website. “I don’t know that answer today, but he’s been out there the past couple of weeks of practice and it’s looked pretty good."

O'Brien went on to add that a seasoned pro like Foster knows more about their body than team doctors possibly could, so it seems like the running back could be indicating that he is getting close to being game-ready.

"Again, anytime we have a veteran player like that that we’re dealing with that type of injury, I think we listen a lot to that player," O'Brien added. "Basically how do you feel? We’ll go on that a little bit and we’ll go on what our doctors say and we’ll go from there.”

Foster suffered a groin injury in August during training camp and underwent surgery. The 29-year-old will practice again tomorrow and there should be more of an update then as the Texans face the Atlanta Falcons in week four.
