Foster (Achilles) is expected to be healthy for training camp, should he sign with a team, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Foster was released by Houston, his home for the past seven seasons, earlier in the offseason after another disappointing year plagued by injuries. Currently unemployed, he continues to rehab from a torn Achilles in the hopes of finding his way onto a roster. Reports say the four-time Pro Bowler will be hungry and healthy for training camp should any team bring him on.
Foster (Achilles) said he probably needs another month to get back into top shape, ABC 13 Houston reports.
Foster made it clear he expects to regain his top form, even though he'll turn 30 before the season and is recovering from a torn Achilles suffered in late October. He'll likely join a team before training camp, with Miami, Washington and New England among the potential fits. He visited the Dolphins at the end of March, but has repeatedly made it clear he's in no hurry to sign a contract.
Arian Foster (Achilles) visited the Dolphins on Tuesday but left without a contract offer, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Afterward, Miami executive Mike Tannenbaum told Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that Foster is "a little bit away" from being healthy.
Foster is five months removed from tearing the Achilles in his right foot, so it's no surprise that he remains in the midst of rehabilitation. Coming off a three-year span in which he appeared in 25 of a possible 48 games, an incentive-laden deal is likely in the 29-year-old's future, but a team such as the Dolphins could use his veteran presence to groom 2015 fifth-round pick Jay Ajayi with Lamar Miller poised to serve as Foster's replacement in Houston. While other organizations are sure to inquire about Foster, his status for the 2016 campaign remains in limbo.
Arian Foster is scheduled to visit the Dolphins on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Foster, who played just four games last season, is coming off a torn Achilles suffered in October, compounding his previous injury concerns. In fact, Foster has missed 23 games over the past three seasons, and will also turn 30 years old before the 2016 campaign kicks off. Nonetheless, with the Dolphins in need of a running back to replace Lamar Miller and complement rising second-year player Jay Ajayi, Foster fits the profile of an experienced, accomplished veteran that could add something to Miami's offense if healthy.
Arian Foster continues to progress in his recovery from a torn Achilles in his right foot, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Foster managed just four appearances in 2015 before sustaining the season-ending injury on Oct. 25, and despite being cleared to jog in January, the Texans cut the seven-year veteran loose just before the opening of free agency. Although his next landing spot is to be determined, he's fitting in a pair of training sessions per day at his brother's facility in Houston with the aim of returning to the field. As long as he avoids setbacks in the coming weeks and months, he should find a home at some point during the offseason due to his all-around potential.
