D’Onta Foreman will not miss any practices or games now that his court date has been moved.
Houston Texans rookie running back D’Onta Foreman was originally scheduled to appear in court on July 31st for his recent arrest.
Of course July 31st is not a good day since Foreman is currently at training camp in West Virginia with his Texans’ teammates.
The good news for Foreman is that with the help of his attorney he was able to get his court date moved back to August 30th, which is the day before Houston’s final preseason game, which is at NRG Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys.
This should give Foreman plenty of time to take care of his legal matters in Austin, Texas and still get back in time for the game.
Foreman spoke with the media earlier in the week and made it clear that he believes he’ll be cleared of the marijuana and firearm charges that he’s facing.
"“I definitely feel good about it,” Foreman said Wednesday. “My lawyer is great. He’s doing everything possible to get everything dropped, and like I said, I’m innocent and I feel like — it’s the truth, I am innocent — so we’re looking forward to getting everything dropped and everything will take care of itself.”"
The good news for Foreman is that he recently passed a drug test and the marijuana that was in his car at the time was not his, but a friend of his who was in the vehicle at the time.
When it comes to the firearm, Foreman legally owns it and didn’t violate any Texas’ laws.

It continues to look like Foreman will not face any discipline from the NFL or the Texans if all continues to go well.
Foreman can now relax a little and focus on getting better as a football player with the Texans’ first preseason game just under two weeks away.
