Texans RB Arian Foster is reportedly progressing from his back surgery well according to GM Rick Smith.
“He’s working hard, he’s in the building, he’s in the training room consistently,” Smith said. “The reports I’m getting from Geoff [Kaplan, head trainer] indicate he’s going to be fine.”
Foster struggled with several injuries last season, starting with a calf strain during organized team activities then a back injury that healed in time for him to start the regular season. Foster also dealt with a hamstring injury and then finally a back injury which knocked him out for the rest of the season when he decided to have surgery.-ESPN.com
Foster’s season was riddled with injuries and before the start of the regular season he will be 28. If he has another season cut short by injury the Texans may need to start grooming a successor.
