Texans' Arian Foster plays against Bills


Arian Foster's hamstring injury won't keep him out for the second consecutive week.

NFL Media's Albert Breer relayed that the Houston Texans running back is officially active to play against the Buffalo Bills

The evolution of the NFL:
Take a look at how the NFL has evolved from its humble roots, and the efforts being made to ensure it continues to grow.

Foster missed last week's loss and was limited in practice all week.

The workhorse running back dealt with the hamstring injury during the preseason, but coaches felt he entered the season in phenomenal shape and was ready to carry an offense with questions at the quarterback position.

The Texans rode Foster through the first two weeks of the season -- both wins -- before he sat out last week. Foster carried the ball 55 times for 241 yards in those contests.

His participation is vital for the Texans, who face a stout Bills defensive front allowing just 83 rushing yards per game (fifth best in the NFL).

Rookie running back Alfred Blue will return to his backup role behind Foster.
