Texans RB Foster recovered, set to start vs. Steelers

HOUSTON -- Texans running back Arian Foster is set to start Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers after sitting out last week's game at New Orleans with a strained left hamstring.

Foster, the NFL's leading rusher in 2010, also was inactive for the Texans' season opener against the Indianapolis Colts and had just 10 carries in the second game against the Miami Dolphins.

Cornerback Kareem Jackson (right knee) and running back Derrick Ward (right ankle) were among the inactive players for the Texans on Sunday.

Left tackle Jonathan Scott (ankle) and right guard Doug Legursky (shoulder) were inactive for Pittsburgh, forcing the Steelers to use their fourth different offensive line this season. Defensive end Brett Keisel (knee) also was out for the Steelers.
