Arian Foster left Thursday's practice with knee soreness. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster left Thursday's practice early with knee soreness, reports John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Coach Gary Kubiak went on to say that he's only being held out as a precaution and will be ready for the Week 1 opener against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: If your heart skipped a beat after reading this headline, you can be forgiven - Foster is one of the hottest fantasy commodities this season, being drafted No. 1 in many leagues and formats, so most fantasy owners will be hanging on to his every movement and word, fearing the worst. For now, though, there's not much to worry about, but keep an eye on Friday's practice reports just in case.
