Foster jogs at practice, explains controversial Tweet

Posted Aug 29, 2011

Texans running back Arian Foster called his hamstring injury is a mild strain on Monday. He also


Texans running back Arian Foster was able to jog at Texans practice on Monday, two days after he aggravated a hamstring injury against the San Francisco 49ers.

“It was just a mild strain, so I’m already jogging,” Foster said. “It feels good.”

Foster was optimistic – and philosophically realistic – about his chances of playing in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.

“That’s the plan, so we’re just going to stick to the plan and try to execute it,” he said, along with this: “You never know, man. I mean, I might not wake up tomorrow. You never know.”

Foster has dealt with hamstring injuries before, at the Senior Bowl in 2009 and in training camp this year. He said that he knows how to rehab the injury and knows what he was doing wrong this time around.

“I think a lot of it was my nutrition,” he said. “I was cutting out a lot of carbs in my diet, trying to get lean. I am lean, but I was trying to get leaner. Carbs are the first thing that go into your muscles when you’re burning energy. So we’ve got a little plan together, so hopefully it works.”

Gaining almost as much attention as Foster’s injury have been his Tweets about fantasy football. Foster, the first overall pick in many fantasy drafts, stirred up a controversy on Sunday when he Tweeted the following about his injury:

”4 those sincerely concerned, I’m doing OK & plan to B back by opening day. 4 those worried abt your fantasy team, u ppl are sick.”

Foster posted follow-up Tweets to clarify his original message, but he explained himself further on Monday after practice.

“That’s a part of the game,” he said, referring to fantasy football. “My Tweet – the fact that we’re talking about Twitter is amazing to me – but my Tweet got taken out of context. What I was saying is that people who value a digital game over a human being’s health is just kind of weird to me. And that’s all that I meant by that, and people took it as, oh, I don’t care about fantasy football. I think it’s good for the game. It gets people that don’t really watch into it. I’m on my mother’s fantasy football team, so I’ve got to do good.

“It got taken out of context. I love all my fans, and if you’ve been following me on Twitter, you know what kind of person and human being I am, and if you know me, you know what kind of human being I am. I try to promote peace, man, because that’s what I’m all about.”
