Coach Bill O'Brien mum on the extent of Arian Foster's injury
Texans Coach Bill O'Brien revealed nothing at his press conference Wednesday about Arian Foster’s injury.
“We have no idea how much time he's going to miss," O'Brien said.
Houston Methodist said that's not dodging questions since injuries all along the inner leg can mimic groin pain and be tough to diagnose.
“They're not being coy with us. It really takes time to figure those out,” Dr. Bill Bryan, a Houston Methodist Orthopedic Surgeon said. “This isn’t like a simple ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) where you can tell from an exam. This takes a lot of, you know, tests like MRI scans.”
The rumors are flying. If you look to social media, Foster said nothing about the injury and his last post concerned a workout.
We don't know how grueling his workouts were in the offseason but Instagram reveals he's been at it since at least late spring.
“They are conditioned. They have done their stretching. It's just that they're so quick,” Bryan said. “This is one of those injuries where sometimes you're so strong and you're so quick that the body can't respond.”
He said Foster, who has been scrutinized for everything including his diet which made headlines three years ago after he disclosed he was eating vegan during the season, is just unlucky this time.
“In this situation you sort of have a sudden, catastrophic tear of the tissues. It has nothing to do with diet,” Bryan said.
A less severe groin injury could put a player out for a couple weeks, while a severe case could sideline a player for 10 months.
