Texans look to replace Foster by Jarren Murillo, Isportweb.com
"It seems like Arian Foster has an injury every season, and this season was no exception. Foster only played four games for the Houston Texans this year before tearing his Achilles. He has only had one healthy season in his seven year career. Even though Foster has been key to the Texans’ offense, there are reports saying that the Texans are going to let go of Foster this offseason. Despite how great of a running back Foster is, it is hard to rely on him because of his history of injuries."
