Texans holding steady with RB group

Head coach Bill O'Brien had no update after Friday's practice on Arian Foster, who is expected to miss time with a groin surgery and may require surgery. Veteran back Chris Polk, signed this offseason, has also missed time in camp with a hamstring issue.

As of right now, the Texans haven't added another body to the position group since Foster's injury on Monday night.

"Well, obviously we are continuing to look at all the rosters," general manager and executive vice president Rick Smith said Friday. "You have to manage these training camp rosters, as you know, with injuries. Right now, we didn't make a move immediately because we felt like we're okay. Chris Polk is on the mend, so hopefully he'll be back soon. So we'll just keep adjusting to whatever happens out here on the field."

The running game has relied on second-year back Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes, fullback Jay Prosch, and rookie Kenny Hilliard in the absence of Arian Foster. The Texans continue training camp in Richmond, Virginia with a final joint practice with the Washington Redskins on Saturday.
