According to Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith he doesn’t consider that Arian Foster’s calf injury will stay with the star running back throughout the NFL season.
In 2012 the 26 year-old rushed for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns for his third straight 1,200-yard season. This previous weekend Foster stated that he feels good and that he expects to be activated from the PUP list soon.
Coach Smith believes Foster’s focus coming into this season portends great things for him in 2013.
Foster’s 351 carries led the football league last season, but Smith considers he isn’t concerned that the running back has had too heavy of a workload.
The New Mexico native spent the offseason using a different training regimen while trying to “reinvent” himself.
YouWager bettors, as well as Foster himself, think the injury was what prompted the change but that it ended up being beneficial beyond that since it’s widely believed that doing the same workouts too much could cause a plateau in performance.
