The Texans don't expect Foster to dress for Sunday's matchup against the New Orleans Saints, but could take a look at him in warmups and change that determination.

Regardless, Ben Tate is in line to shoulder the load at running back in a game plan designed to test the Saints on the ground.

Foster -- the NFL's 2010 rushing champ -- was limited by the injury in Week 2, carrying the ball just 10 times for 33 yards before sitting out the second half.
