Foster took a handoff late in the third quarter and appeared to injure himself before being contacted by a defender. He limped off the field and slammed his helmet in frustration before walking to the locker room.

Foster previously missed the Texans' game against the New York Giants in Week 3 due to a hamstring injury. He played in just eight games last season due to a back injury, for which he underwent surgery in November.
