Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said Thursday that running back Arian Foster will "play a lot" in the Texans' season opener against the Washington Redskins.

Foster played in just eight of Houston's games last year due to a back injury. The 28-year-old, who had back surgery on Nov. 13, said last month he considered retiring after last season.

From the Houston Chronicle:

“I believe at some point you’ll see all three of those other backs: Jonathan Grimes, Alfred Blue and Ronnie Brown in different situations," O'Brien said. "But Arian will get the bulk of the playing time.”

Last year, the Texans won an NFL-low two games. The team won its first two games, and lost the next 14.
