O'Brien says Texans are counting on Arian Foster
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien was very complimentary of running back Arian Foster, who was back at practice for the first time in a couple of days on Wednesday. O'Brien basically said he's counting on Foster a lot this year. 

"(Arian Foster is) a really good football player," O'Brien said according to the Houston Chronicle. "This team is really counting on him. You know, he's a guy that is smart, instinctive and obviously very talented. The Houston Texans need a healthy Arian Foster, so it was good to see him out there."

Foster's 2013 campaign ended early because of a back injury that required a minor procedure. He's expected to be their every-down back in 2014.
