Arian Foster has been nominated for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week award after his performance in the Texans' Week 9 game the San Diego Chargers.
The second-year running back from the University of Tennessee had 27 carries for 127 yards (4.7 avg.) and two touchdowns in the 29-23 loss at Reliant Stadium. He added a team-high 70 receiving yards.
Foster was named the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week earlier this year after rushing 33 times for a franchise-record 231 yards (7.0 avg.) and three scores in the Week 1 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
This week, Foster is in the running with Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis and Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner.
Fans can vote for Foster at **NFL.com/FedEx** through 11 a.m. CT on Friday, Nov. 12. The winner will be announced Friday evening on NFL.com.
Fans will be voting for more than their favorite player. As part of the Air & Ground program, FedEx continues its support of Safe Kids USA by making weekly $2,000 donations in each of the winning players' names. The funding, allocated to local Safe Kids coalitions in that team's city, is used for pedestrian safety improvements throughout the year, from upgraded crosswalks and safety signs to traffic barriers and educational training.
