Arian Foster - Nineteen Yards Short From History

Texans star running back Arian Foster needs just nineteen more yards to pass Domanick Williams (Domanick Davis) and become the Texans all-time leader in career rushing yards. Foster has averaged 88 rushing yards per game over his career, so he'll likely pass Williams during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The list of great running backs in Texans history is rather short and at most the list is only two rushers long. Domanick Davis, now Williams, had two very good seasons during the early years of the Texans franchise, but his success was short lived making this team record easily attainable for Foster. Davis rushed for 1,000+ yards twice during his three seasons with the Texans, and had 1,300+ yards from scrimmage in all three seasons including a best of 1,776 in 2004 which finished top 10 in the league. Davis set this team record in 40 games (36 starts); if Foster breaks the record on Sunday, he'll have done it in 37 career games (29 starts). Foster is easily the best running back in team history at this point and if he stays healthy over the length of his current contract, he'll make the team rushing yards record very difficult to reach for those who follow him. Foster already has the record for rushing touchdowns with 31 to 23 from Domanick Davis.

Current Top Five Rushers In Texans History:

1. Domanick Williams (Davis) - 3,195
2. Arian Foster - 3,176
3. Steve Slaton - 1,832
4. Ron Dayne - 1,385
5. David Carr - 1,235
