Re: Arian Foster
It's confusing why so many decide to assume the worst about Foster and his attitude. The dude works extremely hard in the offseason, and his attitude reflects a competitor with high standards. The irrationality of some fans peaked at the beginning of the season when they were talking about trading him. After the ability that Foster has demonstrated, that idea is terribly illogical.
The injuries don't confirm that his body is breaking down, just that it's changing. All athletes go through this and make adjustments. I was just listening to a long interview with Andre Johnson, and he described how he has changed up his workouts in accordance with his age. He doesn't even run on concrete anymore because it makes his knee swell up. In Foster's case, he overtrained in the offseason. He didn't allow recovery time, and the subsequent injuries have been compensatory. That doesn't mean he's done, it just means he needs to adjust his workouts and plan his recovery better. I envision Foster running for this team for a long time, because the way he runs deflects hits and punishment that typical runningbacks absorb.
