D’Onta Foreman is working on clearing his name after being arrested.
It was quite a surprise when news broke last weekend that Houston Texans rookie running back D’Onta Foreman has been arrest for possession of a firearm as well as marijuana.
It sounds like Foreman is starting to clear his name.
This past Friday Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston reported that Foreman underwent a drug test and the results were negative.
A few days after Foreman’s arrest, news came out that the marijuana that was found in his car wasn’t his. It was actually his friend’s who was in the car at the time.
Now that Foreman has passed a drug test, it should help him avoid having to enter the NFL’s substance abuse program.
When it comes to the firearm that Foreman had on him, he had recently purchased it had a license to carry it. So he actually didn’t break any Texas laws.
Foreman is currently scheduled to appear in court on July 31st, but is trying to get the date moved since he’ll be at training camp in West Virginia with the Texans.
As of right now it looks like Foreman won’t face any discipline by the NFL or the judicial system since it appears that he’s done nothing wrong.

The one thing Foreman hopefully learned from this situation is that he needs to be careful who hangs out with.
If Foreman can stay out of trouble off the field and work his tail off this season, he will likely carve out a role for himself as a rookie in 2017.
I would even expect Foreman to take over as the Texans’ starter in 2-3 years with Lamar Miller already in his mid-20’s.
