O'Brien fine with letting Foster work passing downs too
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien has spoken highly of Arian Foster all offseason long, but on Tuesday he discussed Foster's receiving skills with the media and made it clear he's not afraid to let the running back handle that on top of everything else he'll be asked to do

"In the past, we've had guys like Kevin Faulk, Danny Woodhead in this offense that have filled those types of roles," said O’Brien per Comcast Sportsnet, "and now it looks like definitely Arian will be able to do that and more.

"What the most important thing to do is to make sure that you look at the player's skill set and figure out how they fit your system, or our system, and so what we do is when we have a back that is a three-down back as Arian is, a guy that can play on first, second and third down, then you're finding ways to incorporate him into the passing game and the running game and it really works out well for your offense."

Arian Foster expecting to get a lot of work
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Arian Foster participated in the Texans' recent voluntary workouts and deemed himself "back" following surgery on his back last fall and rehab over the winter and spring. 

Foster tells KRIV-TV in Houston that he's anticipating a lot of work this season, not only as the Texans' primary rusher but also as a receiver. 

"So far I really love it," Foster said of the new Texans offense. "It's very versatile. Coach O'Brien has expressed many times how he wants to use me a lot out of the backfield. That's one of my strengths as a running back. So I'm excited about it."

Through 53 games over the last four seasons, Foster has averaged 20.3 carries and 3.4 catches per game. With over 1,300 total touches in his career Foster should have enough gas in the tank to grant O'Brien's requests. O'Brien does have a strong track record of leaning on his running backs dating back to his days as the Georgia Tech offensive coordinator.

Arian Foster participates in spring minicamp
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Texans running back Arian Foster was a full participant in the Texans minicamp practice on Tuesday. He underwent surgery on Nov. 13 to fix a herniated disc in his back but seems fine. 

"We have to go watch the tape, but he’s just like everybody else: first day, learning the systems and I think everybody without singling anybody out, I thought everybody had a decent start to the first day," coach Bill O'Brien said when asked about Foster per ESPN.

Arian Foster: Surgery 'wasn't as major as it sounded'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Texans running back Arian Foster told Bleacher Report that the surgery he underwent Nov. 13 to fix a herniated disc "wasn't as major as it sounded. That's why I rebounded so quickly. I also worked my ass off. I'm expecting to do bigger things and bounce back."

Foster averaged 4.5 yards per carry in eight games last season and is poised for a big 2014 workload with Ben Tate now in Cleveland.
