No, Wood is on the Pats practice squad. He can be signed to any teams active roster.

Not if we put him on our active roster, he's on their PS.

Yep. Wood would of had a chance at a good career here. It is really weird the way everything happened at about the same time with Foster, Tate, and Wood. Johnson was the next best rb in preseason but he couldn't hang on the ball. Hopefully he has fixed that. Still, such a shame that Wood blew what could have been a great opportunity.

Eh, while I am certainly no NFL starting running back, I had this same surgery a year ago and had a very speedy recovery - felt amazingly better six weeks from surgery and was back running without limitations shortly afterthought hat.

The docs may have better and more informed thoughts, but if his disk is pushed into the nerve then that seems to be one of the primary reasons doctors may opt for surgery - no amount of injections or therapy seem to alleviate that level of pain and discomfort.

I think he will be back and just fine next season.

How much would Arian count against next years cap if we cut him? How about if we trade him?

I think he only counts a bit over $5.5 million next year so unlikely he would be cut...

Great now we need a RB in the draft.

One year turnaround not looking so likely anymore.

Resign Tate, cut Foster is what I would do.

I'm starting to think that CnD works for the Texans or knows someone on the Texans medical staff.

His assessment of our players injuries are incredibly accurate!

I wouldn't count on Foster if I were the Texans. That's all I'm saying. I said the same thing over and over again with Cushing's situation earlier this year and what I feared happened with him.

Cushing latest injury was hardly due to his first injury, that was a vicious block by Charles, and that would of messed a lot of people knees ups. Foster will come back just fine, hell look at Peyton Manning after all his neck surgeries he had.

Im no doctor, but I would think back surgery is just a but more serious than knee surgery. Oh yea and the whole Foster is nowhere close to the type of athlete All Day is argument.

No.Where.Close.

I can't rep CnD enough for what he contributes to this forum, but he's just sharing his expertise on a general level, without the benefit of having examined the players in question. That really highlights just how much the Texans obfuscate injury information and how much we cannot believe anything they say.

Default Re: Arian Foster (season ending back surgery)

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.
