Head coach Bill O'Brien is encouraged by Foster's progress and is optimistic that he'll return for Sunday's game against Tennessee.
"He was out there today," O'Brien said Thursday. "He's moving around pretty well and I think every day with him, because of the nature of some of the injuries he's had, it's day-to-day but I feel good about where he's at today. He's practiced hard and he looks pretty good."
The three-time Pro Bowl running back returned to practice for a second-consecutive day on Thursday, after missing the previous two games with a groin injury. He practiced last Wednesday, heading into the game against Cincinnati, but then did not participate for the rest of the week.
Through eight games this season, Foster has rushed for 822 yards on 161 carries and seven touchdowns. Foster has also caught 26 receptions for 229 yards and three receiving touchdowns.
