“Progression is well, I think from two months ago having it off the bone to today," Foster told reporters Friday of his recovery. "It feels great and so yeah, I feel like I’ve got a chance. It just depends on how it feels on Sunday.”
Foster injured his groin during the preseason Aug. 3 and had surgery shortly afterward. He has yet to make his debut for Houston, who are 1–2 heading into the game with undefeated Atlanta. He will be a game-time decision, according to the team’s website, and was a “full participant” in practice this week, said head coach Bill O’Brien.
Houston's other running backs on the roster are Alfred Blue and Chris Polk, with Jonathan Grimes ruled out for the game with a knee injury. Blue ran for 139 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries in Houston's Week 3 victory over Tampa Bay.
