Houston Texans running back Arian Foster (head/groin) finished Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts with 41 yards on 19 carries and 77 yards on nine receptions (10 targets).
After missing a few plays at the end of the second quarter while being evaluated for a concussion, Foster passed the tests and returned after halftime. The Houston Texans predictably fed him early and often, but the offensive line couldn't get any push. Foster looked like his usual healthy self the few times he had space to work with, notably ripping off a 31-yard catch-and-run in the fourth quarter.
The Texans may be switching from Ryan Mallett to Brian Hoyer at quarterback, but the change probably wouldn't mean much for Foster's owners, unless Hoyer proves to be a significant upgrade. Either way, Foster should again see plenty of touches in a favorable Week 6 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars .

Foster was visibly shaken up after taking a hard hit from Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson late in the second quarter. Foster came off the field with trainers, but he returned one play, then was taken back out of the game. Shortly thereafter, he slammed a Gatorade cooler on the sideline and left for the locker room.
Alfred Blue will likely lead the Houston backfield for the rest of the night.
Arian Foster (groin) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Colts.
With fellow RB Jonathan Grimes inactive and Chris Polk banged up, Foster and Alfred Blue represent the team's healthiest backfield options heading into Thursday's action. In his return to the Houston Texans ' lineup this past Sunday, Foster recorded just 10 yards on eight carries to go along with three catches for 25 yards, but we'd expect Houston's top back to see an uptick in touches and production in his second game back from injury.

Fellow running back Jonathan Grimes is out for the contest, while Chris Polk is listed as questionable, which leaves Foster and Alfred Blue as the team's healthiest backfield options heading into Week 5.
Foster recorded just 10 yards on eight carries to go along with three catches for 25 yards in his return to action this past Sunday, but Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle puts forth the highly plausible notion that Foster could have a dramatically increased role in Thursday's game.
