Texans Coach Kubiak Hopeful RB Foster Will Be Ready for the Opener

Texans coach Gary Kubiak is hopeful that star running back Arian Foster will be ready to go for the teams opening game against the Indy Colts on September 11th. Foster hurt his hamstring against the 49ers on Saturday night.

“Looks like we’re dealing with the same thing we were dealing with at the start of camp,” Kubiak said Sunday. “Hopefully, we can get him back on the rehab train, and get him ready for opening day. He’ll be day-to-day.”

Foster had sat out the Texans preseason opener, then rushed five times for 47 yards and two touchdowns in the teams 27-14 win over the Saints on the 20th of August.. He was hurt on his eighth carry against the 49ers.

“Until he hops back out there, there’s a concern,” Kubiak said. “But it sounds like we’re heading in the right direction.”

Foster himself said on Sunday in a Tweet to his followers not to worry, that he would be back and ready to go for the opener.
