Texans Foster making progress toward return
When the Houston Texans set their initial 53-man roster to start the season, they had a decision to make on injured running back Arian Foster.
Foster, who was injured early in training camp, was not placed on injured reserve or injured reserve with the designation to return.
That decision is a clear indication they believe Foster will return sometime soon.
"Arian is doing well," O'Brien said. "Relative to the injury that he has and the prognosis early on I would say that he is ahead of that.
"But again, like I always say to people, I reserve the right to change my mind."
Foster averaged 4.8 yards per carry last season, his best mark since his first season as a starter in 2010.
His 95.8 yards rushing per game last season was tops in the AFC and second in the NFL.
"He's a very hard-working guy right now in the training room," O'Brien said. "I think he'll be back sooner rather than later, relative to what the early prognosis was."
During the preseason, the Texans were one of just four teams to average less than three yards per carry. They ranked 29th in the NFL.
Foster is eligible to play at any point he's deemed healthy.
