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.
