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.
Colts RB D'Onta Foreman has been placed on IR with a torn biceps, according to insider Aaron Wilson. Foreman, of course, was still working his way back from 2017's torn Achilles. Now it'll be 2020 before he has a shot to make any sort of impact.
The Colts have claimed RB D'Onta Foreman off waivers. The 89th pick of the 2017 draft was cut over the weekend by the Texans, who reportedly weren't happy with Foreman's work ethic. It remains to be seen if he'll ever regain pre-injury form after his torn Achilles, but he was once an intriguing prospect at 6’0, 233 pounds with 4.4 speed. We don't consider Foreman an immediate threat to Marlon Mack's lead ball-carrying role -- and he's definitely not a threat to Nyheim Hines' pass-catching role. But Foreman could push Jordan Wilkins for the #3 spot on the depth chart.
The Texans are releasing RB D'Onta Foreman, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain. "They weren’t happy with his work habits," McClain writes. This comes as a major surprise after the team had been talking up its 2017 third-rounder all offseason. Still just 23, Foreman will certainly find a job elsewhere, but he's not worth drafting right now. The Texans, meanwhile, are left with undrafted rookies Damarea Crockett and Karan Higdon, plus vets Josh Ferguson, Buddy Howell and Taiwan Jones, behind Lamar Miller. Look for them to add to that group before Week 1, but Miller is obviously a fantasy winner here.
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.
