Arian Foster Injury News: Foster A Game-Time Decision For Texans-Falcons?

Ed Werder is reporting that Arian Foster's status for Sunday's game between the Texans and Falcons will go down to the wire. Make sure to check the Inactives news on Battle Red Blog at 10:30 a.m. CDT Sunday for the final call.

Ever since Arian Foster returned to practice a little less than two weeks ago, fans (both Texans and fantasy football alike) have been anxiously awaiting word of when he'll suit up for a game. Sunday will mark the fourth game of the Texans' 2015 season and coincidentally the proverbial "worst case scenario" of Jayson Braddock's report concerning when Foster would return. We haven't gotten word that Arian Foster will in fact be in uniform when the Texans take on the Falcons this week, and Ed Werder is reporting that any decision to that effect will go down to the wire.

As much as the Texans need Arian Foster--and they desperately do, Alfred Blue's excellent performance against the Buccaneers last week notwithstanding--they are not going to rush him back. Indeed, with a short week and Thursday Night Football on deck against the Colts on October 8th, some may believe it's prudent to hold him out one more game.

Although we wish we had more clarity about Foster's situation, it looks like this one may not be known until the Texans release their list of inactives at 10:30 a.m. CDT on Sunday. We'll have that news on BRB as soon as it's available, so if definitive word on Foster's status doesn't break before then, feel free to check back her on Sunday morning.
