Texans running back Arian Foster says he expects to play in Sunday's season opener against the Dolphins, according to HoustonTexans.com reporter, Nick Scurfield.

Foster left Thursday's practice with a minor knee injury, though Texans coach Gary Kubiak said, "He's ok," shortly after. Foster also skipped Friday workouts due to lingering soreness.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport also reported that Foster wasn't too concerned about the injury:

If Foster is limited, however, second-team running back Ben Tate (942 yards, 13 receptions in 2011) isn't a bad back-up according to CBS Sports' Will Brinson:
