Texans say Arian Foster's status is day to day
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien told reporters that running back Arian Foster's playing status is day to day moving forward, per the team's official website.

Foster was a game-time decision heading into Week 4 because of a hamstring injury. As a result, he was limited to 53 percent of Houston's offensive snaps (36). He compiled 61 yards on 15 touches.

Alfred Blue will get the starting nod if Foster can't go in Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Texans running backs mostly silent in Week 4
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Texans running back Arian Foster was expected to receive his usual workload in his return in Week 4 against the Bills, but Alfred Blue actually ended up with more rushing attempts in the win.

Of course, that doesn't tell the whole tale. Foster was ineffective with his eight carries, as he rushed the ball for just 6 yards in the win. Blue wasn't much better, finishing with 9 yards on his nine carries. Foster did shine in the passing game, hauling in seven passes for 55 yards, to Blue's two receptions.

The interesting thing about Sunday's game was how little Jonathan Grimes figured into it. It appears as if Blue and Foster might be the tandem going forward, though it is possible Grimes saw more of the field than the standard box score might indicate.

Foster might not have been fully healthy Sunday, which could explain his somewhat limited role. With another week of rest, however, he should improve next week, which will only be bad news for Blue. He looks like just a handcuff option for Foster owners, given his lack of usage in passing downs.

Arian Foster struggles on ground in Week 4 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Texans running back Arian Foster managed just six rushing yards on eight carries Sunday but also caught a team-high seven passes on 10 targets for 55 yards in his team's 23-17 win over the Bills in Week 4.

Foster was a game-time decision heading into Sunday and ended up playing after a productive pregame warmup, but he split carries pretty evenly with backup Alfred Blue, with neither running back finding any room to work. Foster saw his last carry with roughly 10 minutes left in the third quarter and worked exclusively in the passing game after that. He'll look to heal up this week before facing the Cowboys in Week 5.

Arian Foster active for Week 4
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Texans running back Arian Foster (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's Week 4 matchup with the Bills.

Foster was listed as questionable heading into Sunday but warmed up on the field and was deemed ready to resume action. He'll slot in as the team's primary running back but will likely be monitored throughout the game to see whether the injury begins to flare up.

Last-minute Arian Foster reactions
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

By all indications, Texans running back Arian Foster is expected to play through his hamstring injury in Week 4 against the Bills Sunday, and he is not expected to have any limitations.

Fantasy owners who have been waiting for news of Foster's status should take this as good news. Barring a last-minute setback that leaves Foster inactive prior to game-time, he should probably be moved into all lineups for Week 4, even against a Bills team that is allowing just 12.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. According to the Houston Chronicle, Foster is expected to get a full workload.  

Additionally, Alfred Blue seems likely to see a steep decline in his playing time -- and he only had 13 carries with Foster out. Sit him.
