Arian Foster back on the sidelines Friday “It’s kind of a day-to-day thing. It’s nothing serious" By: Mike Krueger | Aug 1 2014, 12:15 pm
Running back Arian Foster, who’s presumably dealing with a strained hamstring - neither he nor the team has yet confirmed that’s his injury - returned to a spectating role Friday after having participated in a full practice Wednesday. He’d already missed two workouts and part of a third earlier this week.
"He’s doing OK," coach Bill O’Brien said. "It’s kind of a day-to-day thing. It’s nothing serious. I would assume - (but) guess you can’t assume anything - he’d be back pretty soon." (Houston Chronicle)
FFToday's Take:Since we don't have confirmation on what exactly the injury to Foster is, it's hard to analyze the situation from a fantasy perspective. What we do know is Foster has a lot of wear and tear on his tires and missed eight games last season with a back injury. He's coming off the board early in Round 2 as RB8 with a boatload of injury risk.
