Foreman (Achilles) was dismissed from all charges pertaining to his July 2017 arrest in Austin, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Foreman was arrested last summer on the University of Texas campus on charges of marijuana possession and unlawful carrying of a weapon. However, the passenger in Foreman's car took responsibility for the former and Foreman tested clean of any drug use. The NFL reportedly said it won't undertake any disciplinary action should these pending charges be dismissed, so Foreman looks to be in the clear. He can now focus his attention on rehabbing the ruptured Achilles he suffered last November, which is expected to be fully healed in time for the 2018 season.
Foreman's season will come to a close after he suffered a torn left Achilles in the Week 11 win over the Cardinals while rushing for his second touchdown of the contest. Given the severity of the injury, Foreman could be limited or held out entirely when training camp opens next summer, putting something of a damper on his 2018 outlook. The Texans filled Foreman's spot on the 53-man roster by claiming running back Andre Ellington off waivers from Arizona.
Foreman will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm an initial diagnosis of a ruptured Achilles tendon, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Texans won't make an official announcement on Foreman's status until after the results of the MRI are read, but the expectation is that the rookie running back will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season. Foreman suffered the injury while finishing off a 34-yard touchdown run in Sunday's win over Arizona, his second score of the day as part of a 10-carry, 65-yard effort on the ground. With Foreman likely sidelined the rest of the way, Alfred Blue (hamstring) -- if healthy -- should step back in as the main backup to Lamar Miller beginning with a Week 12 matchup with Baltimore.
Foreman was carted off the field in the fourth quarter of the contest after carrying 10 times for 65 yards and two touchdowns while adding three catches for 15 yards. Assuming the serious nature of his injury is confirmed Monday, the Texans will likely need to add depth behind starting running back Lamar Miller, given that Alfred Blue is dealing with a hamstring issue and was inactive Sunday.
Foreman has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to an ankle injury.
Foreman was carted off the field at the conclusion of a 34-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, according to Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle. Expect the Texans to touch on Foreman's health afterward, whether it's during a media session with head coach Bill O'Brien or otherwise. The Texans backfield could soon be down to Lamar Miller, Jordan Todman and Alfred Blue, the latter of whom was inactive Sunday.
