Arian Foster went down in a heap without taking a hit.
Foster injured his right Achilles tendon late in the fourth quarter of Houston's 44-26 loss at Miami on Sunday. Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he didn't know the severity of the injury, but added ''it obviously didn't look good.'' If Foster tore his Achilles, his season is over.
Foster was starting to run a pass pattern off pre-snap motion when he fell to the ground and grabbed his leg. He was helped off the field by teammates and training staff.

Foster hasn't played a full season since 2012. The four-time Pro Bowl pick missed eight games after having back surgery in 2013, sat out three games last year and three more this season. He's battled groin, hamstring and calf injuries.
In St. Louis, Johnny Football made his first appearance since Week 2 after Josh McCown hurt his right arm late in Cleveland's 24-6 loss to the Rams.
McCown left favoring his right arm and Manziel entered for his first action since he was questioned Oct. 12 by police in Avon, Ohio, after the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner argued with his girlfriend while driving on a highway.
