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 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.
