The news on Houston Texans running back Arian Foster's status for Sunday continues to remain murky at best. The hamstring injury threatens to leave Foster on the sideline or limited in his carries. Foster was asked yesterday if he'll play on Sunday and he said "I don't know." Adam Schefter has since suggested on ESPN that Foster may play in a bit of a part time role against the Colts.
Naturally this raises a host of concerns for fantasy football owners. Foster is a number one running back when healthy and a guy you start every single week no matter the matchup. We'll wait to see if he takes part in practice today, but even if he does practice today and tomorrow, odds are high that you will still need to double-check his status on Sunday morning.
The big question is what to do if he's going to start but might end up only getting a limited number of carries. It's possible he feels completely healthy after a few runs and gets his normal dose of carries. Or, he gets four or five carries and has to call it a day. It's a role of the dice that will depend on what we hear on Sunday. If reports are a possible time-share, it might just be best to start another back in his place. We'll see what comes down Sunday morning before the game.
