He was right about Kareem Jackson missing extended time, and now Jayson Braddock has been proven right about Arian Foster missing tomorrow's game against the Browns. Corzo has a FanShot here, but this deserves a featured post, considering how significant Foster's absence will likely be, especially with Ryan Mallett making his first NFL start. From the team's official site:

Arian Foster won't play against the Browns.

The Texans running back is out for the Week 11 contest in Cleveland because of a groin injury.

Foster was injured in the Week 9 loss to the Eagles, and didn't practice on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. He leads the AFC with 822 rushing yards, and has averaged 102.1 yards per game in 2014. He's also scored 10 touchdowns this season, which is best on the team.

Alfred Blue will get the start in place of Foster.  Now that the team has announced it will be without its All-World running back tomorrow, how are you feeling about the Texans' chances in Cleveland?
