HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Texans Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster returned to OTAs on crutches one day after suffering a calf sprain. On Tuesday, Foster took one step and then suddenly stopped, suffering a calf sprain in the first play of team practice. Head coach Gary Kubiak said Foster’s condition was not serious but not to expect to see the starting running participate in the remainder of OTAs.
“He has a pretty good calf strain. He’s on crutches today, will be for a couple of days. He’s going to be fine but don’t expect me to bring him back out here. We’ve got two weeks left so we’ll just go to work on getting him healthy, getting him ready for training camp. Unfortunate, but feel lucky too.”
Kubiak had no concerns about Foster’s recovery in time for the Texans’ training camp in late July.
“Luckily we’ve got two months almost before we get ready to go,” Kubiak said after OTA practice on Wednesday.
Coach Kubiak said that while the Texans dodged a bullet, Foster’s summer plans were not as lucky.
“Might have ruined Arian’s summer. He’s going to have to be here a lot but that’s okay. He’s going to be okay.”
