Arian Foster: 'I'm just gonna take it day-by-day'

There is no timetable for the return of Texans Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster.

“Sometimes muscle injuries can linger,” Foster said. “You can’t play through it. It’s not like a broken collarbone. I’ve played through a lot of things. This is something you can’t and there’s no reason to right now. So I’m just going to take my time and when I feel 100 percent ready, I’ll be back.”

Arian Foster put in an offseason of training that made Gary Kubiak say, “He’s maybe having the best offseason I’ve seen him have,” back on May 23.

A few days later on May 28, Foster came up lame during a routine drill during OTAs and suffered a calf strain. He would be held out until training camp. Thursday he was listed on the Active/PUP list to start camp.

In terms of when he returns, Foster is in no hurry to rush back.

“There’s just some light soreness in there,” Foster said. “I can pretty much do everything, so we’re just going to take it day by day.”

Foster ran for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns last season. It was his third straight season with at least 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns.
