HOUSTON – Texans running back Arian Foster's strained right calf will keep him off the practice field until training camp this summer.
Foster was injured in an offseason practice on Tuesday. Tests revealed no further damage, but the strain will keep Foster on crutches for at least a couple of days. Coach Gary Kubiak says he expects his leading rusher to be fine, but that he won't participate in the team's practices over the next two weeks.
Kubiak says that Foster, who ran for 1,424 yards last season, was injured simply taking a step on a play on Tuesday. He believes Foster will be healthy in plenty of time for the start of training camp, which usually is held in late July.
