Arian Foster started on Sunday, caught a game-high seven catches and carried the ball eight times against the Bills. He said afterward that he "came out healthy" following the game, despite playing when he "didn't feel 100 percent myself". Foster missed Week 3 with a hamstring injury, and was limited last week in practice because of it.
On Monday, head coach Bill O'Brien gave an update on Foster's status for Sunday's contest at Arlington against the Cowboys.
"Again, I would say Arian and a number of other guys are in that day-to-day category," O'Brien said. "That's what we'll do. We'll talk to him every day and see how he feels. If he's able to go, he'll go."
Foster picked up six yards rushing against Buffalo, and backup Alfred Blue added nine yards on as many carries. O'Brien said he wants to improve in that area, and explained how the Texans will try to get better running the ball.
"We have to look at our game plans and think about what our players do well and run those types of plays," O'Brien said. "Without getting too specific, we have to start there."
