Foreman rushed 12 times for a team-high 59 yards in Week 6's 33-17 win over the Browns.
Foreman nearly had his first NFL touchdown, but was shoved out of bounds at the one-yard line after a 39-yard burst. Other than that big run, the rookie running back was held in check (1.8 YPC). In all three of Houston's wins this season, Foreman has notably logged double-digit carries. He's not yet ready to steal the top job from Lamar Miller, but the two could become a two-man backfield tandem over the final 10 games of the season. After a bye week, Foreman and the Texans are on the road to play the Seahawks, who currently rank 26th against the rush.
Foreman (hip) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Foreman will be out there if you need him this weekend, but given that he's a Lamar Miller injury away from a reliable role in the Houston attack, he's a speculative play in Week 6. In Week 5, Foreman carried four times for 34 yards in a loss to the Chiefs, while logging just nine snaps (out of a possible 64) compared to Miller's 56.
Foreman (hip) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Foreman had a four-week low with nine snaps and 37 yards from scrimmage during last week's loss to the Chiefs. The Texans have become a more pass-friendly offense with quarterback Deshaun Watson at the helm, so the sleeper opportunities for Foreman have not yet materialized. And it figures we'll see more of the passing offense in Week 5 against the Browns, who are surprisingly stout against the run (2.9 YPA, 2nd in NFL) but 19th against the pass and tied for 29th with 11 passing touchdowns allowed.
Foreman was limited at practice Wednesday due to a hip injury.
Foreman, who carried four times for 34 yards in last Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, is a worthy roster stash, given that he's a Lamar Miller injury away from a steady role in the Houston attack. In Week 5, Miller logged 56 out of a possible 64 snaps on offense, while Foreman was out there for just nine plays.
Foreman rushed for 34 yards on four carries and added a three-yard catch in Sunday's 42-34 loss to the Chiefs.
The big rookie got loose midway through the second quarter for a 25-yard gain to set up a Texans touchdown. Despite his beefy exterior, Foreman has rattled off three plays of at least 25 yards in three weeks at this point. Still, it's hard to get too excited, no matter his talent, when he only gets nine offensive snaps out of 64. Through five weeks, starter Lamar Miller is averaging 19 touches per game. Foreman is averaging just over eight. Unless and until he begins vulturing goal-line carries, do not go all-in on Foreman.
