Foster to start for Texans in return from hamstring injury

After sitting out last week to rest his injured hamstring, Arian Foster will be in the starting lineup for the Texans on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.

Foster took the practice repetitions as the starter all week during practice, according to the source. He is listed as probable.

The Steelers will be without two starting offensive linemen against the Texans, officially ruling out left tackle Jonathan Scott and right guard Doug Legursky on Friday. Trai Essex, who signed with the Steelers during the preseason and has played in all three games, will replace Scott. Ramon Foster will get the start for Legursky.

Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel (knee) is also out and will be replaced by Ziggy Hood.
