There was a Northwestern study published in the March issue of the Journal of American Sports Medicine that examined records of NFL OL and DL, who had herniated disc surgery during their active careers over a 2 decade period (~1990-2010) that were publicly available.......in order to determine their career outcomes, They found a total of 52. Not only did 80 percent of these particular players return to the game, they also played an average of 33 games during three years after the surgery. About half of them attained starter position. When you look at these surprisingly encouraging number, you must keep in mind that the 52 number was for those known to the public through the media and the stats through the NFL. The specific surgery and pathology in most cases were not available to assess "minor" vs "major"........and, we all know that public information released by the teams many times is of dubious accuracy. As we also know, NFL players have surgeries that are never made public. Not only that, but you need to ask yourself how many NFL players have had back issues, retired and THEN had surgeries, instead of opting to try continuting their careers through surgery. These latter players would not be counted in these stats and would likely add significantly to the "poor outcome" category.

There are no other studies I am aware of NFL players (including RBs) undergoing back surgeries. With this said, yes, OL and DL put great amounts of strain on their backs, but they do not typically sustain this strain under high impact situations from not only head-on, but also from the sides as is the case with RBs. Keep in mind that it is not uncommon that after one level of disc problems are demonstrated, other levels being affected may be not far behind. As disc problems may commonly be the result of compensation for other injuries, even if this episode of Foster's disc problem is surgically corrected, with his recurrent history of significant lower extremity injuries (and these are likely to continue to recur) , I would be very guarded about his long-term prognosis as a RB.

Thanks Doc

Running back Arian Foster ready to tackle Texans new offense
Quote:
"So far I really love it," Foster said. "It's very versatile.

"Coach O'Brien has expressed many times how he wants to use me a lot out of the backfield. That's one of my strengths as a running back. So I'm excited about it."
...

"They have a lot of zone schemes, runs, every offense does," Foster said. "The way they want to use me out of the backfield as far as different alignments and matchups they want to have against linebackers and things like that."

...he is looking forward to working with O'Brien and his staff.

"They're good guys," Foster said. "They want to win. That's all you can ask."

Duane Brown: Foster is the best RB in NFL
Quote:
"I know what kind of running back Arian is. He's a very special talent. He has a lot of tools that you can't coach. His elusiveness, his vision, his ability to catch out of the backfield. When he's healthy, I think he's definitely the best back in the league and I think he's on track to show that this year."
...

"I think he's very excited about this year," Brown said. "I've gotten a chance to talk to him a few times just you know his role in this offense and I think he's looking forward to it as I am too."

I am very excited to grab Foster in the 2nd round of my fantasy football league as he tears up the league again.

I thought Domanick Davis was going to be a beast before his injury, i just hope we can keep Foster healthy and fresh to prolong his career. With him, AJ and a good QB the offense could take this team to a championship !

Yeah, me too. I just decided it wasn't worth arguing over. #23 will put that nonsense to bed when the bullets start flying.
