The Texans tried to play it cautious with RB Arian Foster and his hamstring injury, but that plan didn’t keep him from aggravating the injury against the Dolphins on Sunday.
The Texans announced late during the third quarter that Foster is questionable to return.
Foster, who was a game-time decision after being limited in practice throughout the week, has been splitting carries with Ben Tate. Foster had 10 carries for 33 yards and two receptions for 7 yards, all during the first half. Tate has been more effective, with nine rushes for 45 yards and three receptions for 19 yards.
UPDATE: Even after announcing Foster’s injury, it appears the Texans were playing it safe to avoid any setbacks. “He’s fine,” coach Gary Kubiak told reporters after the game. “He obviously wasn’t himself and got pretty fatigued. He wanted to play in the second half.”
UPDATE II: Here’s an update from Foster, who said he took himself from the game: “I pulled myself out because I felt it was getting a little tight.”
