Houston Texans Need More Time to Assess D'Onta Foreman's Health

Patrick D. Starr

The Houston Texans arrived at The Greenbrier in West Virginia to take part in their second consecutive year of training camp at the well-known country club. The Texans are going into the 2018 season with many of their top players returning from injury.

Second year running back D’Onta Foreman showed promise during his rookie season in 2017, prior to tearing his Achilles tendon. Foreman tore his right Achilles after scoring a rushing touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals in week 11.

While Foreman has been on the mend, he did not participate in OTAs and, prior to the start of training camp, he was placed on active/PUP list. Despite working with the Texans this off-season for his rehab, Foreman is still not where the organization would like to see him.

Texans general manager Brian Gaine discussed why the Texans placed him on the PUP list.

“Work in progress right now. Still recovering from his injury. We need a little bit more time to determine if he’s going to be ready for the season,” Gaine explained.

Gaine continued, “So, we’re not there at that stage but we think he’s getting better. He’s improving, but time will tell whether he’s available to us or not when we kick off.”

Foreman's status will be something to watch moving forward to determine whether he can get back onto the field before the preseason is finished.

Foreman rushed for 327 yards and 2 touchdowns in his rookie season.
