Arian Foster is back at practice after leaving early Wednesday with an illness. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (illness) returned to practice Thursday, reports Nick Scurfield. Foster left practice early Wednesday with an undisclosed illness, but appears to be fine and ready to play Sunday against the Jaguars. Foster ran for 79 yards and two touchdowns against the Dolphins in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: The good news is that Foster seems to be over the knee soreness that kept him out of practice last week, and this illness is nothing serious. He's still one of the best fantasy players in the league and should put up big numbers against the Jaguars, who struggled to contain Adrian Peterson last week.
