Arian Foster pulled himself out of the second day of Texans training camp on Sunday, favoring his left hamstring and lower back.
Foster, 27, pulled up during a group session, walked over to a team trainer and began grasping for and working on his leg and back.
He tested it later, re-entering the session, taking one rep and going full speed, but pulled himself out after and didn’t return.
In Foster’s absence, newcomer Andre Brown took the bulk of the first-team reps, with Dennis Johnson, Toben Opurum and rookie Alfred Blue handling the rest.
Head coach Bill O’Brien avoided a question after practice on the health of his three-time Pro Bowler.
“As far as I know (he’s OK),” he said.
Foster has dealt with hamstring issues throughout his career, missing 8 games last season and time during the 2011 preseason. You might remember the latter as the time Foster tweeted out a picture of an MRI indicating he had a hamstring strain.
The six-year NFL veteran underwent offseason back surgery to try to prevent any future problems.
So far, not so good.
