Arian Foster out for rest of Texans OTAs with calf injury

Posted May 29, 2013

Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster will miss the rest of Texans OTAs (organized team activities) after injuring his right calf on Tuesday.


Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster will miss the rest of Texans OTAs (organized team activities) after injuring his right calf on Tuesday.

Foster was not at practice on Wednesday at the Methodist Training Center.

“We left him in (Reliant Stadium) today,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “He’s on crutches today, will be for a couple days. He’s gonna be fine, but don’t expect me to bring him back out here. We’ve got two weeks left, so we’ll just go to work and get him ready for training camp. (It’s) unfortunate, but we feel lucky, too. (He) didn’t do anything, just took a step. But he’s gonna be OK. But like I said, don’t expect to see him again (in the spring).”

The Texans have five practices remaining in OTAs and a three-day mini-camp from June 11-13.

“We’ve got two weeks left of the offseason, so (we’re) obviously not going to do anything to take a risk,” Kubiak said. “We’ve got two months almost before we get ready to go. Might have ruined Arian’s summer – he’s gonna have to be here a lot – but that’s OK. He’s gonna be OK.”

Ben Tate will work as the Texans’ starting running back during Foster’s absence. Veteran running back Deji Karim and undrafted rookies Ray Graham, Dennis Johnson and Cierre Wood also will get more carries.
