Foster left Thursday's practice with a minor knee injury, though Texans coach Gary Kubiak said, "He's ok," shortly after. Foster also skipped Friday workouts due to lingering soreness.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport also reported that Foster wasn't too concerned about the injury:

If Foster is limited, however, second-team running back Ben Tate (942 yards, 13 receptions in 2011) isn't a bad back-up according to CBS Sports' Will Brinson:

Foster rushed for 1,224 yards and had 53 receptions in 13 games last season. He missed three games due to a hamstring injury.
