Report: Texans could lose Arian Foster for remainder of season

The news on Houston Texans running back Arian Foster continues to get even worse.

Not only will Foster miss the Week 10 game this week at the Arizona Cardinals (4-4), but he could miss the remainder of the season due to possible back surgery according to reports.

Veteran reporter John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, tweeted the following today:

Later he tweeted:

This is a worst-case scenario for this season, but to be honest, this season is a loss for the Texans anyway as they are 2-6 overall, four games behind the Indianapolis Colts entering Week 10.

Here is the article on the Toro Times from earlier Friday, referencing Foster missing the Cardinals game this week, while looking at his current season.

I believe Foster might as well figure out what is wrong with his back now, get it fixed, and get ready for next season when the Texans have a better chance of being a playoff team and division champion once again.

If the Texans continue to lose, what is the point of putting Foster on the field to just re-injure himself again?

If the treatments that McClain is speaking of don’t work out for Foster, the best case scenario would be to just shut Foster down and go from there. It seems the most logical choice in my book. It is just a wait and see approach right now.
