It seems as though another player on the Houston Texans has likely suffered an unfortunately season-ending injury. Running back D’Onta Foreman likely suffered a torn Achilles on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Houston Texans’ rookie running back D’Onta Foreman had a huge game during Sunday’s 31-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals, after racking up 65 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries.

Unfortunately, Foreman ended up getting carted off the field with what seems to be a torn Achilles, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Foreman will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Here’s a look at one of Foreman’s two touchdowns on the day.

This is certainly unfortunate, given the fact that Foreman has shown promise this season and is the Texans’ running back of the future.

I was starting to wonder if Houston might move on from veteran running back Lamar Miller this coming offseason and go with Foreman, but with this injury, they won’t be able to do that.

With Alfred Blue inactive on Sunday due to a hamstring injury, the Texans will likely need to sign another back after they place Foreman on season-ending injured reserve.

Foreman finished his rookie season with a total of 327 yards, two touchdowns and an average of 4.1 yards per carry. His average was 3.9 yards per carry heading into Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, so he improved on that during his final game.

On the bright side, at least Foreman’s injury didn’t occur too late in the season. He should be ready to go for training camp next summer.
