Texans running back Arian Foster is questionable to return to his team’s week two game against the Miami Dolphins. Foster aggravated his hamstring, the same injury that kept him sidelined last week. Ben Tate will pick up primary rushing duties, looking to repeat his performance from last week.
Foster injured his hamstring in the preseason. In his place last week, Ben Tate ran for 116 yards on 24 carries. He also scored a touchdown as the Texans walked past the Peyton Manning-less Indianapolis Colts by a 34-7 score.
Anyone who is counting on last season's yards from scrimmage leader in fantasy football, should have already picked up Tate or another option. Texans fans and Foster owners alike will want to keep an eye on Foster's status this week. The Texans face the Saints in week three.
The Texans lead 16-13 following a Dolphins field goal early in the fourth quarter.
