Oh yes there is. Last season he was hurt and he had surgery on his back. There's a significant chance that we may never see the Arian Foster we think of as a "high quality starter" again. There's also plenty of reason to hope we will.
It's still up in the air whether last season was an aberration or the first year in his inevitable decline. After the 2005 season plenty of people thought Dominck Williams (Davis) was a high quality starter too. He never played again.
Just got to wait and see. I thought they were generous and mostly optimistic in rating him a solid starter in light of the circumstances.
