Texans RB Arian Foster leaves practice with strained calf

Arian Foster left practice early with a leg injury on Tuesday at Texans OTAs. Coach Gary Kubiak said it was a strained calf.

Foster was injured on the first play of team drills at the Methodist Training Center. The three-time Pro Bowl running back was taken across the street to Reliant Stadium on a golf cart with ice on his leg.

"We'll go get it looked at," Kubiak said. "It's always concerning. You're trying to get better out here, work everybody. It's part of football, so we'll see what's wrong, see what happens."

Wide receiver Andre Johnson, who has dealt with an assortment of hamstring and knee injuries in his 10-year NFL career, said he did not think Foster's injury was significant. "I don't think it's anything serious where anybody should be worried or something like that," Johnson said. "I think if it was, he would've said something. You can tell when it's something serious. I've been around it long enough. So, I'm sure he'll be fine. Just give him a little rest; he'll be back out there."
