Houston Texans running back Arian Foster had to leave practice due to an illness on Wednesday, but his status for Sunday's game is unchanged, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster felt under the weather during Wednesday's practice and left early.

Foster also had to sit out of practice before the Texans' Week 1 game against the Miami Dolphins, but it didn't turn out to be much of an issue. The same should be true this time, according to Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle:

Coach Gary Kubiak said it was no cause for alarm and that it would not affect Foster's status for Sunday's game.

Apparently there is a bug going around the locker room. Cornerback Jonathan Joseph had it also. Kubiak indicated it wasn't a big deal.

In other news out of Houston, linebacker Bryan Braman returned to practice on Wednesday after a hamstring injury forced him to miss time.
