Arian Foster May Be Done For the Season
Terrible news looms over the disappointing Houston Texans today as the team has officially ruled Arian Foster out for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. The star running back is suffering from a back injury that sources deem as serious.
Season-ending surgery is a possibility for Arian Foster. But he’s seeking several opinions, hoping to avoid that. He wants to play

Foster entered training camp earlier this season with the back issue, but the condition has worsened to the point where he may need season-ending surgery, unless it can avoided. Previously, Foster has dealt with hamstring injury, as well as a calf injury. Despite all of that, he has still managed to rush for 542 yards and a touchdown in 8 games.
Fantasy owners may want to consider dropping Foster and looking into the availability of 2nd string Ben Tate as he’ll take on the starting role. Wait until official word of Foster’s 2013 campaign before dropping him.
UPDATE 10:14 ET: It is being reported by several NFL sources including Ian Rapoport that Foster is done for the season due to needing surgery on his back. Ben Tate will be the Texans’ starting running back for the rest of the season.
