Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was held out of practice on Wednesday as doctors examine his back after he re-injured it this past Sunday.

Running back Arian Foster missed practice on Wednesday as he was with doctors having a back injury diagnosed, Texans interim head coach Wade Phillips said.

Foster missed a lot of time during the preseason with  back problems.  I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see him for a few weeks.

Ben Tate will carry the load in Foster’s absence.
