Today Arian Foster was finally back practicing at his own discretion per the Houston Texans coaching staff. This is great news considering the current injuries that exist at the running back position. The Texans are coming into this weekends match-up with a limited arsenal at the position and Foster more than likely will not play. Nonetheless finally having last years NFL rushing champion back is great news.
Chris Ogbonnaya likely will get the majority of the carries once again this weekend and we are still reeling from his performance after Monday nights preseason opener against the New York Jets.
Not to attempt to one up Ogbonnaya’s solid effort Monday night but the defense set a franchise record laying down a seven sack performance by the Houston Texans. During the Houston Texans win over the Rex Ryan lead New York Jets to the tune of 20-14 on national television. We all witnessed small glimpses of possible long term defensive cures for what ailed Houston all of last year on the defensive side of the ball.
Many of the young players stepped up largely in part the first team offenses and defenses were limited in plays. But with all of these things along with the excitement of NFL football finally being back after a lengthy lockout. Who would you vote as Monday nights Houston Texans prime time player?
