Arian Foster today revealed to fans that he has been given the all clear to begin jogging again as he looks to recover from a torn Achilles.
The veteran running back chose a rather novel method to reveal the news, too - filming his appointment with the doctor and posting it to his official Instagram account.
Foster suffered the injury back in Week Seven of the 2015 regular season, and, with his future at the Houston Texans unclear, this is a timely boost for the 29-year-old.

As you can see, there is still plenty Foster can't do just yet, namely "no pivoting, cutting, (or) explosive activity," but it does, at least, look like the perennial Pro Bowler is trending in the right direction.
Considering his checkered history with injuries - Foster has been unable to complete a full season since 2012 and wasn't long back from a torn groin when he suffered the Achilles injury in November - Tuesday is an important milestone as he looks to bounce back in 2016.
Just where Foster will be playing his football next season is another question, however. The Texans have been noncommittal on the RB's potential return and he would cost $9 million against the salary cap if he was in Houston for the next campaign.
This summer, then, may be a case of Foster putting himself in the shop window for other franchises. Keeping them up to date with his recovery is an important part of that.
