Texans running back Arian Foster says injured hamstring is day-to-day

Monday September 22nd, 2014

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster said on Monday that he is 'day-to-day' with a hamstring injury that kept him out of the team's Week 3 loss to the New York Giants and limited him in practice last week, according to the Texans' official website.

Foster was reported as saying that his hamstring felt 'good,' but he also stressed the complexity of hamstring injuries:

Hamstrings are the hardest thing to gauge because you don't know how it's going to fatigue, how it's going to react to a certain cut...You never know, but it felt really good.

Foster picked up 241 yards and a touchdown on 55 carries in Houston's first two games this season, both wins. First-year back Alfred Blue took Foster's spot on Sunday against the Giants, running 13 times for 76 yards, including a 46-yard dash in the third quarter.

Foster's 2013 season was shortened by an injury that led to back surgery late last year.

The Giants defeated the Texans, 30-17.
