Arian Foster Doesn't Feel Pain

According to this Sporting News' report, Texans running back Arian Foster played all of last year with a torn meniscus in his right knee.

↵

Wow. I know Foster had a phenomenal year and all, but this really says something about his determination and work ethic. I guess it's a good thing that he kept the secret because he finished as the NFL's leading rusher, but I hope this doesn't jeopardize his future in any way. He underwent arthroscopic surgery for this "minor tear" back in late February, and he's been recovering nicely since the procedure.

It was initially reported that Foster tore his meniscus in the Pro Bowl, but it turns out that wasn't the case. Apparently Foster even tweeted about this in February, but it's just now becoming national news.

↵

It speaks volumes that Foster was really that worried about losing his job if he was honest about his injury, but it's in the past now. What could have been?

Foster rushed for an NFL-leading 1,616 yards with one good knee, what can he do with two?
