Injuries to the Texans' quarterback position and top wide receiver Andre Johnson have running back Arian Foster projected to carry a big load in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, given the injuries to the Texans' passing game, look for the Bengals to load up against the run in an effort to slow down Foster.
NumberFire.com projects Foster at No. 7 in its Week 14 projections overall and as the No. 2 running back trailing only Baltimore's Ray Rice.
After an injury plagued start to the season, Foster has made the most of his opportunities during the Texan's six game winning streak. He has scored a touchdown in each game of the winning streak and has gone over 100 yards four times. Last week he carried the ball 31 times against Atlanta for 111 yards and a score.
