Injury roundup: Foster out with hamstring injury

Arian Foster is battling hamstring troubles again.

The Pro Bowl tailback was forced out of Sunday's game between the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars late in the first quarter. He did not return to the Texans' 23-17 victory.

Foster missed one game and a portion of another with a hamstring injury early in the season. He has also dealt with groin and knee injuries over the past two months.

Foster finishes one of his most effective seasons with 1,246 rushing yards and 13 total touchdowns in 13 games.
