Houston Texans RB Arian Foster's status for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts is up in the air. He's going to be a game-time decision against the Colts which means we won't know his status until roughly 90 minutes before the game when the team declares inactives.
Even if he's active, the issue isn't over. We won't know exactly how much he'll play until the game starts, if he is indeed active. If he can't go, RB Derrick Ward and RB Ben Tate will handle the backup duties.
Foster's comments earlier in the week almost make you think he'll rest it so as to not hurt himself for more than just a game:
"With hamstrings, it's not something you can push through," he said. "When you try to push through, it's just going to re-occur. It's not like a knee. Like with my knee, I could just push through it because you're not going to mess it up too much more. With a shoulder, you can just push through it. You can't just push through it. It's something that has to heal completely before you can come back completely."
We'll see. The Texans will release incatives about 90 minutes before the game and, if Foster isn't on there, he's got a chance of playing.
