Foreman in not participating in Thursday's practice due to a leg injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The severity and origin of Foreman's leg injury is unclear at this point, but his potential availability for Saturday's preseason contest against the Saints is now in question. He's racked up 93 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries through two preseason games thus far, but remains behind Lamar Miller and incumbent backup Alfred Blue on the Texan's posted depth chart. Tyler Ervin could see an increased role out of the backfield Saturday if Foreman is ultimately unable to play. Looking ahead to the regular season, Foreman may not provide immediate fantasy dividends, but his combination of size (6-foot-1, 233 pounds) and athleticism could be parlayed into utility on that front down the road, in the event of an injury to Miller.
