Texans HC Bill O'Brien said RB D'Onta Foreman is making "good progress" as he continues to work back from 2017's torn Achilles. "I think he’s had a really good time away from us, and that’s parlayed into a good spring," O'Brien added. Foreman got back on the field last December and is encouraged by how this offseason has gone. "I’m fluid. I feel good. My mindset is really good right now," he said. "A year ago, I didn’t know what I would be like coming back, if I would ever be the same. I had a lot of stuff going through my mind. Right now, I’m just in a good spirit and looking forward to the season." A healthy Foreman is plenty capable of pushing RB Lamar Miller for work this year. We'll be keeping a close eye on the situation when training camp opens.
Texans GM Brian Gaine said he's "optimistic about a very positive return” from RB D'Onta Foreman. Foreman was just starting to flash as a rookie before tearing his Achilles. He predictably didn't do much this past season, debuting in December and carrying 8 times for 2 yards in 2 appearances. Houston used a 3rd-round pick on Foreman back in 2017 after he ripped off 2,028 yards and 15 TDs in his final year at Texas, so there's obviously ability here. We'll see if he can regain pre-injury form and push for a significant role this summer.
Texans RB D'Onta Foreman is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue will handle backfield duties.
Texans RB D’Onta Foreman (Achilles) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. It’ll be his first game action since last year’s torn Achilles. Foreman figures to see just a handful of touches behind lead back Alfred Blue.
Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. That leaves Alfred Blue as Houston's lead back. D'Onta Foreman might also be ready to make his 2018 debut after last year's torn Achilles. Blue is the better fantasy play, though, and has some RB2 upside vs. a Philly defense that's allowed 5.4 yards per carry to RBs over the past 5 weeks.
Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. HC Bill O’Brien said Friday that Miller “has a chance” to play against the Eagles on Sunday. We’ll get his official status by noon ET. If Miller suits up, he’ll be a risk/reward RB2 at less than 100%. If not, Alfred Blue figures to serve as Houston’s lead back. RB D’Onta Foreman (Achilles) could also make his 2018 debut.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the ankle injury Texans RB Lamar Miller suffered in Saturday's win over the Jets is "not serious." Rapoport adds that there's "a chance" Miller is able to play next week. RB Alfred Blue mustered just 6 yards on 9 carries in relief of Miller vs. the Jets. It's possible we see some RB D'Onta Foreman against the Eagles next week if Miller can't go next week. We'll keep an eye on the situation this coming week.
Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. He was activated this week but evidently isn't ready to contribute yet. Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue will continue to serve as Houston's top 2 RBs.
The Texans on Tuesday activated RB D'Onta Foreman from the PUP list. He had been on it since summer, while working back from last November's torn Achilles' tendon. It's hard to envision Foreman playing a big role in fantasy lineups over the final 3 weeks of most seasons, but he's at least worth an add as a handcuff to Lamar Miller. Houston would have little reason to bring Foreman back to the active roster at all unless it planned to give him a decent role.
Texans RB D'Onta Foreman still isn't ready to return from last year's Achilles injury. "Better, not all the way back yet," HC Bill O'Brien said of Foreman on Tuesday. "I think he feels good. We've got a little more time on that decision." With RB Lamar Miller rolling, Houston has no reason to rush Foreman back. You're better off stashing a handcuff like Malcolm Brown, Spencer Ware or Rod Smith than Foreman.
The Texans have activated RB D'Onta Foreman from the PUP list. He's 5 days from being a full year removed from that torn Achilles. Houston now has 21 days to either activate Foreman to the roster or stick him on IR. We'll keep an eye on him, but we'd guess Week 12 is the earliest he'd play. And it'd be at least another week before he'd possibly be a fantasy option. Foreman is only worth stashing in deep leagues.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Texans expect RB D'Onta Foreman to return to practice next week. Foreman has been on the PUP list all season, coming off the Achilles' tear that cut his 2017 short. He'll have 3 weeks to get activated or placed on IR. We'll see how the 2nd-year RB progresses. Houston starter Lamar Miller has surged over the past 2 weeks, though, and doesn't look quite as susceptible to the potential Foreman challenge as he did a few weeks ago.
Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that he doesn't expect RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) to be activated from the PUP list this week. "I don't think he's quite ready," O'Brien said. The coach said 10 days ago that Foreman was on track to return in "a few weeks," so we're still expecting to see him sooner than later. He remains worth stashing on benches in most fantasy leagues.
Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that RB Lamar Miller (chest) is expected back for this weekend's game against the Bills. Miller was active as an emergency option only last night and didn't end up playing. He might return to a committee backfield with Alfred Blue -- and will also need to contend with D'Onta Foreman's eventual return.
Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is on track to return in "a few weeks," HC Bill O'Brien said Friday. Foreman is on the PUP list and first eligible to play Week 7. It sounds like he has a shot to be ready then. A healthy Foreman has a shot to carve out a significant role in this backfield -- and maybe even emerge as Houston's lead dog. RB Lamar Miller is averaging just 3.9 yards per carry this season.
The Texans have placed RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) on the reserve/PUP list. That knocks him out for at least the first 6 games of the season as he continues to work back from last November's torn Achilles. Foreman obviously isn't worth a roster spot in redraft leagues right now, although he'll be a potential in-season waiver wire target. Lamar Miller will open the season as Houston's feature back and will be a strong fantasy play.
