The big news first: It's time for a new status update on the Arian Foster injury watch. He looks just fine. After a hamstring injury limited Foster to 33 yards through the first three weeks of the NFL season, the Texans running back is running wild vs. the Steelers, racking up 155 yards in Houston's 17-10 win.
As for the game, the Texans could have lost it easily. Wide receiver Andre Johnson went down in the first half with a hamstring injury, taking out their primary offensive weapon. And at other times, it seemed they wanted to lose. Houston wiped out two return touchdowns with penalties.
Just as important for Foster and the Texans, is the workload he was able to handle. Foster has carried the ball 30 times. Not only is this a good sign for his recovery, it was also much-needed after Houston lost Johnson. If Johnson has to miss time, the Texans will need Foster to carry the offense.
