Texans coach Gary Kubiak said after Friday’s practice running back Arian Foster will be a game-time decision for Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

But the fact the Texans could head into Sunday’s game with only Ben Tate and Steve Slaton on the active roster, seems to be an indication Kubiak is expecting Foster’s hamstring to be healed enough to play and start against the Saints. Foster missed the season opener and then carried just 10 times in the first half last week against the Miami Dolphins before being pulled.

“He practiced today much like he did yesterday,” Kubiak said. “He took limited amount of reps but he was involved in the whole practice. We will watch him tomorrow morning when we go through our jog through and see where he is at and probably put him through a little workout before the game.”

Foster, who seemed more confident last week his hamstring was ready, was cautiously optimistic Friday about his chances to play against the Saints.

“I’m just not sure how to gauge a hamstring anymore,” he said. “It’s tough but I’m working and I’m working hard. I feel like it’s going but I’m going to keep on fighting the good fight.”

Foster said his hamstring feels like it’s a little bit further along than it was last week, “but you don’t want to do anything to take a step back so they were limiting my reps. It’s just part of the process. It’s a tough injury.”

What seems curious is that if Foster can’t go, the Texans could be left with just two running backs on the active roster. Derrick Ward was ruled out earlier in the week with a high ankle sprain. Houston product Chris Ogbonnya is on the practice squad but as of Friday afternoon had not been added to the active roster.

In other injury news, Kubiak said receiver Jacoby Jones, who suffered a leg injury celebrating a touchdown last week, practiced Friday and will be ready to play Sunday.
