Arian Foster Appears 100%

Finally, the Houston Texans running back Arian Foster appears to be 100%. He has struggled to get on the field for most of training camp due to a back, and calf injury. However, Foster is a full go for Monday Night Football against the San Diego Chargers. Although Foster has a favorable match-up, we are not expecting the old Arian Foster to show up.

Coach Gary Kubiak has also hinted at a decrease in touches for the star as injuries have held him back. The numbers of carries he will receive is a mystery, but who joins him in the backfield is not. Ben Tate will be sharing the running back duties with Foster, and has the potential to be a star himself. In his rookie year Tate posted 942 rushing yards, and 4 touchdowns. The talent is clearly there, but it is hard to make a major impact with Foster around. Look for both running backs to play well Monday night, and for Foster to continue his dominant play in the red-zone.
