After battling a hamstring injury all week and being a question mark leading up to Sunday evening, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is active for the team's game against the division rival Indianapolis Colts.
Foster and fellow running back Ben Tate -- who is battling a rib injury -- were both hurt in the team's last game, two weeks ago. The team signed multiple running backs, most prominently Deji Karim, to fill the backfield in case the running backs were to miss time, but both are active.
Fantasy impact: At this point, it's unlikely many fantasy players have alternatives to Foster or Tate left, but it's moot now, as the two are active. The Texans might limit the touches of the two, giving Karim and quarterback Case Keenum the chance to have an impact, but still, the two big names are unquestionably better options than the likely alternatives left to play this week -- primarily Karim, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, and Colts wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.
