After missing last week’s loss to the New York Giants with a hamstring, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.
“He did some things today,” head coach Bill O’Brien said. “I do mean it, I don’t mean to be — I really believe it’s day-to-day with him. That’s just the way it is.”
Foster missed eight games last season with back and hamstring injuries and underwent offseason back surgery. Despite playing only two games in 2014, Foster’s 241 rush yards rank fifth in the NFL.
The Texans will monitor Foster’s status throughout the week, up to and including the hours before their game Sunday against the Buffalo Bills at NRG Stadium.
“We’ll see how he feels in the morning, we’ll see what he does tomorrow, then Friday, then Saturday,” O’Brien said.
“Then Sunday, we’ll probably work him out before the game again, see how it is.”
The decision to sit Foster last week wasn’t made until Sunday, when his balky hamstring acted up and forced him out of his first game this season.
O’Brien hinted at the possibility of that waiting game being life for Foster and the Texans beyond this week.
“With him, that’s basically the way it will be here for at least this week.”
