Free-agent running back Arian Foster expects to be fully recovered from his Achilles injury just in time for the start of this season’s training camps, a source close to Foster told ESPN.

At the end of May, Foster said he would need another month of recovery before he could be back to full form, which has put him well on track to be ready for the start of training camps in late July.

Foster, 29, ruptured his Achilles tendon in October during his fourth game of the 2015 season. He sat out for the remainder of the season.

The Texans released Foster in March, but at least three teams have expressed interest in signing him since then, ESPN reports.

Injuries have interrupted two of Foster's past three seasons, but over seven seasons with Houston, the running back has logged 6,472 yards with 54 touchdowns in 68 games.
