Arian Foster isn't saying much these days.
The Houston Texans star running back gave short, evasive answers to the media on Thursday, only the second time he's met with reporters at training camp.
Foster said only slightly more than he did on July 30, when he responded to every question by repeating that he just wanted to be the best teammate he could be.
Foster returned to practice on Wednesday after missing most of training camp with a hamstring injury.
He left early in Thursday's joint practice with the Atlanta Falcons, went to the trainer's table for some stretching and then returned to the field.
After practice, he avoided direct answers to any question, saying he was only speaking to reporters to fulfill his contractual obligation.
