Arian Foster, Brooks Reed Active For The Texans

The Houston Texans will have star running back Arian Foster active and available on Sunday when they host the Miami Dolphins in their 2012 season opener. Via the Texans official team twitter feed:

Foster has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game, and was a game-time decision after a MRI on his left knee came back negative. Foster led the Texans in rushing last season with 1,224 yards and 10 touchdowns. Backup running back Ben Tate can still be expected to get some work against the Dolphins, as Foster and his gimpy knee will be eased back into action.

With a healthy Foster and a repeat performance from their defense, the Texans are expected to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders this season.
