Arian Foster injury: Fantasy football value drops with missed practice Monday

Bob Levey

Foster isn't the only Texans running back hurting right now, either.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster hopes to resume practicing later this week, according to Tania Ganguli of ESPN.

Foster said his hamstring is progressing quickly, and he hopes to work toward playing this week. Meanwhie, his backup, Ben Tate, also didn't practice on Monday as he recovers from broken ribs suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Texans will already be without Matt Schaub on Sunday against the Colts, so they can't afford to lose too many more offensive players.

Fantasy spin: Foster and Tate both have the potential to be big time fantasy football producers when healthy. In recent years, both players have had their injury issues, though.

It's too early in the week to panic about either running back, but Dennis Johnson would be the back to own if Foster and Tate can't play. The undrafted rookie out of Arkansas was with the team in camp and recently signed again.
