Arian Foster Injury Is To The Same Hamstring As Before

It's the same story for Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, who was forced to leave Saturday's matchup with the San Francisco 49ers after injuring his hamstring. The injury is nothing new for Foster, and is to the same left hamstring he strained during training camp. While there's been no word on how long he may be out of action, a nagging hamstring injury is not an encouraging sign.

John McClain confirmed Foster aggravated his strained hamstring, noting the Texans running back would not be back on Saturday.

Foster won't return after injuring his left hamstring. It's the same one he hurt in camp. He won't return against the Niners.

And, of course, there's already been speculation about Foster's return, and whether he'll be back for the Texans opener against the Indianapolis Colts. ESPN AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky had the following to say.

Arian Foster has left hamstring injury again. Start timer on whether he's ready for #Colts. #Texans

We should know more about the extent of his injury, and whether it may be a long-term issue, following the game, or perhaps in the next few days. Until then, Texans fans will be holding their breath.

Texans Vs. 49ers Score: Matt Schaub Leads Houston To Halftime Lead, 24-7

Outside of Arian Foster's hamstring injury, it's been a successful first half for the Houston Texans. At the half, the Texans lead the San Francisco 49ers, 24-7. Matt Schaub has been stellar, Foster was effective before his injury and the Houston offense is firing on all cylinders.

Schaub completed 14 of 22 passes for 168 yards with a touchdown and interception in the first half. His lone touchdown pass came when he found Owen Daniels for 12 yards and a score in the second quarter. Before Foster left the game, he had carried the ball eight times for 38 yards, with backfield mate Derrick Ward adding a rushing touchdown. The Houston defense got in on the act, as well, with Troy Nolan taking an interception return back 73 yards for the touchdown.

Alex Smith completed just two of five passes for 16 yards and an interception as the San Francisco quarterback problem continued to fester. Colin Kaepernick didn't fare much better, completing one of seven passes for 17 yards while also throwing an interception. Kendall Hunter carried the ball six times for 34 yards in the half.

Arian Foster Injury: Houston Texans RB Leaves Game With Hamstring Injury

Bad news for the Houston Texans: Arian Foster was forced to leave Saturday night's preseason game with a leg injury. Foster left the game holding the back of his left leg and looked to be in quite a bit of discomfort as he hobbled off the field. It is unlikely he will return on Saturday night as the Texans battle the San Francisco 49ers.

According to Jason Lacanfora, this may be it for Foster's preseason, though nothing has been confirmed.

Texans calling Arian Foster's injury a hamstring tweak for now. My hunch is don't expect to see him again til the season opener vs. Colts

It's likely Foster will be held out as a precaution, though his injury may not be serious. With any hamstring injury, the risk of lingering issues is high, and it's always better to err on the side of caution. The extent of his injury is still unknown, but with another week of preseason before the Texans open the season against the Indianapolis Colts, Foster still has plenty of time to heal.

We'll be back with more as it becomes available.
