    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Reports to workouts in great shape

    D'Onta Foreman, who appears to have "lost a significant amount of weight," reported to the offseason program at 230 pounds, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.The Houston Texans are reportedly pleased with Foreman's progress, though news of his evolution isn't a huge surprise overall given how Foreman had already drawn praise this offseason for slimming down. After playing at a listed weight of 235 pounds last season coming off a torn Achilles, Foreman is clearly taking total advantage of his first full offseason program in the pros, uninhibited by any rehab work. Entering the draft, he seems to be the odds-on favorite to open the 2019 campaign in the No. 2 role behind Lamar Miller.

    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Dropping extra weight

    D'Onta Foreman has embraced a demanding offseason regimen that includes a healthy diet and regular boxing workouts, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.Foreman predictably failed to make a dent in 2018 as he worked his way back from a torn Achilles suffered in November of his rookie season. He did get a few snaps in Houston's lone playoff game, setting the stage for a healthy offseason and presumably a larger role in 2019. Foreman reportedly has slimmed down from his listed weight of 235 pounds, emphasizing agility and conditioning rather than relying on power and straight-line speed. He figures to enter training camp as the No. 2 running back behind Lamar Miller, who is still viewed as the starter by Houston Texans GM Brian Gaine. It could easily turn into a competitive situation if Foreman's hard work this offseason pays off.

    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Hopeful for 'positive return'

    General manager Brian Gaine said the Houston Texans are "optimistic about a very positive return" for D'Onta Foreman in 2019, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.After tearing his left Achilles on Nov. 19, 2017, Foreman wasn't cleared for game action until Week 16 of the past campaign. In what marked his sole appearance of the regular season, he didn't find much success on the ground (seven carries for minus-one yard) but hauled in both of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown. With Alfred Blue set to be a free agent in March, Foreman is slated to move up the depth chart behind Lamar Miller, who was called a "three-down back" by Gaine in the same media session. Miller is preparing for his age-28 season and has dealt with the occasional injury in Houston, so Foreman should have a chance to make good on the investment made in him in the third round of the 2017 draft, as he continues to put the Achilles' issue in the rearview mirror.

    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Active for playoff loss

    D'Onta Foreman had one carry for three yards and was targeted once in Saturday's 21-7 wild-card round loss to the Colts.Foreman, who missed the first 12 games of the season due to his recovery from a ruptured Achilles, was active for just the second game since his return Week 14. The history of players returning from similar injuries is not encouraging, particularly for running backs, per this study in the journal Foot & Ankle International. That doesn't mean he can't be an impact player in 2019, but fantasy owners should proceed with caution.

    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Inactive Sunday

    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Scores in 2018 debut

    D'Onta Foreman rushed seven times for a loss of one yard but caught both of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Eagles.Foreman found himself wide open in the middle of the field and caught a strike from Deshaun Watson for an easy touchdown with 4:41 left in the game. Aside from that, the 22-year-old was unable to do much in his first game action since returning from an Achilles injury. He did see three more carries than Alfred Blue, however, and an equal amount of touches. The former Longhorn will likely remain at least the change-of-pace back even if Lamar Miller returns for Week 17 at home against the Jaguars.

    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Active for first time in 2018

    D'Onta Foreman is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles with Lamar Miller (ankle) sidelined, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.Foreman, a 2017 third-round pick, acted as the top complement to Miller for the majority of his rookie campaign before tearing his Achilles' tendon Nov. 19 of that year. The lengthy rehab he required after surgery resulted in him opening the season on the PUP list before he was activated earlier this month. He'll now get the chance to make his season debut, likely handling a limited role on offense behind fill-in starter Alfred Blue.

    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Could have role Week 16

    Coach Bill O'Brien said D'Onta Foreman may be active for Week 16 in Philadelphia, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.Foreman was activated from the PUP list Dec. 4 but hasn't actually been active for any games. Lamar Miller's ankle injury may create an opening Week 16, with Alfred Blue and undrafted rookie Buddy Howell representing the other options at running back. Even if he ends up playing, Foreman would probably have to settle for a small role in a multi-player backfield. He's still an intriguing asset in dynasty/keeper leagues, but the appeal is limited in redraft formats.

    Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Inactive again in Week 15

    D'Onta Foreman (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Jets.Though Foreman was activated from the PUP list Dec. 4, the Houston Texans apparently don't feel the second-year back is ready to contribute coming off November 2017 surgery to repair his Achilles' tendon. Foreman has been a full practice participant since being added back to the 53-man roster but may not have regained the same speed and explosiveness he displayed during his injury-shortened rookie campaign. With that in mind, the Texans will continue to deploy Alfred Blue as the main backup to Lamar Miller, with No. 4 back Buddy Howell's prowess on special teams earning him the active nod over Foreman, who isn't used on the team's kick coverage or return units.

    D'Onta Foreman is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.Foreman is now available after coming off the Houston Texans' PUP list, but he'll remain the odd man out for now, with Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue on hand to lead the team's backfield in Week 14.
