The Texans have gone through their second morning practice in the 2013 training camp.

Running back Arian Foster spoke to local reporters for the first time since February on Saturday morning. The Pro Bowl back strained his calf this spring and started training camp on the Active/PUP list. He can be taken off that list any time during training camp.

Foster said there is no timetable for his return. But he isn't the only player who has missed practice.

Backup tight end Garrett Graham is on the Active Non-football Illness list as he recovers from some sort of virus. He spent Thursday in the hospital and is still at home recovering.

"Garrett is back in the building and he’s feeling better," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "We’re hoping for tomorrow, but we’ll wait and see where he’s at.”

Kubiak added that Graham has lost weight because of the illness and will need to be worked back in.

Rookie linebacker Sam Montgomery rolled his ankle on Friday. He was checked out but returned. On Saturday, he was held out of the morning practice on Saturday.
