Foster shredded the Steelers for 73 yards on seven first-quarter carries. He was not as effective after that, but he capped his night with a 1-yard touchdown catch with 1:31 left. Foster caught four of his six targets for 13 yards.
Foster made a huge mistake late in the first half when he coughed up a fumble at his own 3. His second lost fumble this year, and 10th of his career, led quickly to a Steelers' touchdown.
Up to six total touchdowns, Foster visits the Titans in Week 8.
Clowney hasn't played since Week 1 while recovering from knee surgery. Linebacker
The Texans have a whopping 12 players listed as probable to play Monday, including running back
Though he looked risky coming into the season,
It's not surprising, then, to see him ranked among the top running backs for Week 7 at Pittsburgh, but would you believe he's No. 1, ahead of even DeMarco Murray?
For Jamey Eisenberg, he is anyway, and Dave Richard ranks him second, behind only Murray. The Steelers aren't even an especially favorable matchup for running backs. Granted, the only good one they've faced is Ben Tate (twice), but they rank 15th against the run, giving up 111.2 yards per game, and are in the middle of the pack in terms of Fantasy points per game allowed to running backs.
Granted, you weren't going to sit him regardless of where Jamey and Dave ranked him, but let their ranking be reassurance to you that you indeed have one of the greatest assets in the game in Foster.
Foster was one of the few bright spots for Houston on offense. He carried the ball 20 times for 109 yards and scored twice during the contest. He also caught three passes for 32 yards. Foster didn't really show his big play ability until the second quarter. He had a 28 yard reception at the start of the quarter, and added a 22-yard run on the drive. The run was wiped out by a holding call, but that didn't stop Foster from racking up yards later. On the next drive, Foster showed off his vision, twisting and turning through the Colts defense on a 12-yard score. Foster also ripped off a 34-yard run in the third quarter. He capped off the drive with a 2-yard score.
Foster will take on the Steelers Week 7.
