NFL's Reigning Rushing Champ, Arian Foster, Leaves Friday Practice With Hamstring Injury

Arian Foster, the NFL's leading rusher in 2010, called it a day on Friday after coming up lame with a hamstring injury less than an hour into the Houston Texans' morning training camp session. Foster was unavailable for comment, but Texans head coach Gary Kubiak gave the following statement about Foster reporters after the day's work was over with: ↵↵
"I don’t know, but he didn’t feel good so I just said ‘Get out,’" Kubiak said. "He went 35, 40 minutes (in practice) and looked great, so I’m hoping he’ll be right back out here. We’ll see."
↵↵Foster is coming off a remarkable sophomore season. As a rookie, Foster had a mere 54 rushing attempts, but emerged out of nowhere last year to lead the league in rushing yards (1616), rushing touchdowns (16) and yards from scrimmage (2,220). ↵↵Two of Houston's other star players on offense -- tight end Owen Daniels (flu) and Andre Johnson (dislocated finger) -- also sat out on Friday. I don't think any Texans fans mind if the emphasis is on Wade Phillips and what he's doing to improve the defense during camp, but hopefully Foster's hammy is just fine over the weekend, and that Matt Schaub has his full aresenal of playermakers to get back to work with sooner rather than later. ↵↵For more Houston Texans' camp coverage, analysis and discussion, head on over to Battle Red Blog.↵
