Texans RB Foster will miss opener vs. Colts

UPDATE: Foster officially was ruled out when the Texans released their inactive players at 11:30 a.m. ET. Ward will start in Foster’s place.

The Texans have yet to officially deactivate Arian Foster, but team officials don’t expect him to play Sunday against the Colts.

Internally, Foster isn’t in Houston’s game-day plans, according to a source, and no one believes his hamstring will allow him to play. The running back, who led the NFL in rushing last season, would be officially deactivated at 11:30 a.m. ET.

The Texans plan on a heavy rushing workload, with Derrick Ward the starter but with sufficient carries for youngster Ben Tate as well.
