Texans running back Arian Foster said Thursday he’s fully healthy and has been working out for two months. In turn, Foster intends to participate in the Texans OTAs, which run from May 27 to June 13, Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle reports..
“I’m fine,” said Foster, during a premier party for “Draft Day” at Texans Grille. “I got cleared … so I’m feeling good.”
Foster, 27, rushed for just 542 yards and one touchdown during the Texans’ disappointing 2013 season. After struggling with injuries during preseason and sitting out all four games, the sixth-year running back wasn’t his normal self during his team’s 2-14 campaign.
Ben Tate eventually took over for Foster. And Tate’s offseason signing with Cleveland leaves a healthy, motivated Foster as a critical link to the Texans’ 2014 rebound.
Foster won’t call 2014 a comeback year, though.
“It’s not like I’ve got to go prove — I’m not trying to prove anything,” said Foster, who recorded at least 1,224 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns from 2010-12. “I always play this game to the best of my ability and that’s what I’m going to continue to do.”
