| Arian Foster undergoes successful surgery -- Fri Aug 7 4:55 pm --|
RB expected to be out three months
|Texans running back Arian Foster underwent surgery Friday morning to repair a groin muscle that was torn off the bone, according to a source. Although a timetable for his return is unclear, there's hope that his recovery time will be shorter than three months, the source said. Foster will miss several regular-season games, and it's possible he will be placed on injured reserve with a designation to return. The earliest the Texans can make that move is Sept. 6 at 4 p.m. ET. The Texans have not yet added another running back to a roster that includes Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes, Kenny Hilliard and fullback Jay Prosch. "We didn't make a move immediately because we felt like we were OK," Texans general manager Rick Smith said. "Chris Polk is on the mend and so hopefully he'll be back soon. We'll just keep adjusting to whatever happens out here on the field."
FF Today's Take: There's not a lot to get excited about in the Texans' backfield this year. Alfred Blue looked very mediocre last year and Chris Polk has had only limited experience in two NFL seasons. While Blue probably has the upper hand on the starting job for now, Polk has higher upside.
|Texans, Pierre Thomas can't agree on contract -- Wed Aug 5 12:45 pm --|
Unable to agree on terms
|Apparently the Texans’ plan to sign former Saints running back Pierre Thomas has fallen through after his tryout Wednesday. Thomas’ agent, Lamont Smith, had the following tweet: Pierre Thomas had a great visit and work out with texans, unfortunately we were unable to agree on terms. (Houston Chronicle)|
FF Today's Take: The Texans are looking for running back help in the free agent market after Arian Foster injured his groin during practice Monday night. Foster is expected to miss a portion of the regular season. If the Texans fail to sign a free agent, Alfred Blue, Chris Polk and Jonathan Grimes are likely share time while Foster is out.
