After missing the first three weeks of the regular season recovering from groin surgery, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster made his season debut in Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Foster was involved early, catching a 15-yard pass from quarterback Ryan Mallett on Houston's first play from scrimmage. He followed that up with runs of two and three yards on the next two plays.

The Pro Bowl running back underwent surgery Aug. 7 after tearing his groin early in training camp.
