Arian Foster "day-to-day" with hamstring injury

Arian Foster was inactive against the New York Giants on Sunday, and gave an injury update on Monday morning.

The Texans running back said he's still "day-to-day" with a hamstring injury that kept him from playing in the Week 3 loss. Foster was listed on the injury report last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday as "limited" because of a hamstring injury.

He worked out prior to the game at MetLife Stadium, but was unable to play. He said his hamstring felt

"good" on Sunday, but not good enough to suit up against the Giants. Hamstrings, according to Foster, are tricky injuries.

"Hamstrings are the hardest thing to gauge because you don't know how it's going to fatigue, how it's going to react to a certain cut," Foster said. "You never know, but it felt really good."

Foster explained his disappointment at not being able to contribute.

"It's just hard watching your team play without you period," Foster said. "I put a lot into this season. I put a lot into what I do as a professional, and so do they collectively as a team. When all your people aren't out there, it's just hard to stomach, but its part of the game."

Foster's carried the ball 55 times for 241 yards and a touchdown this season.

In his place against New York, rookie Alfred Blue started and picked up 78 yards on 13 rushing attempts. He broke loose for a 46-yarder in the third quarter, and the Texans were able to score a touchdown two plays later.

"I thought he played well," Foster said. "It was his first start. I know it was on the road and he made some big plays. I feel like he has a good future in this league. I was proud of him."

The Texans will go back to practice on Wednesday, and face the Bills at NRG Stadium this Sunday at noon CT (CBS-11/KHOU).
