Default Arian Foster pulls hamstring in his first 2011 practice

Hate to be the bearer of BAD news!

Really surprised this isn't already on here!

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...2011-practice/

Texans tailback Arian Foster, the NFLís leading rusher in 2010, has seen his quest for a repeat derailed temporarily via a pulled hamstring.

Per Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle, Foster suffered the injury on a 40-yard touchdown run during the first play of an 11-on-11 scrimmage.

It was Fosterís first practice since signing a one-year exclusive rights tender offer on Sunday.

Foster showed up later in the day with the leg heavily wrapped.

I pretty much refuse to read whatever drivel he produces. It would be nice if the Chron would get an actual real sportswriter on staff.

Default Re: Arian Foster pulls hamstring in his first 2011 practice

Hopefully this isn't lingering. Hamstrings can be a long recovery if you don't let it heal. They should just sit him as long as possible.

As far as McClain, go read one of his chats. It is 1 hour of nothing. He never has info, snaps at questions and repeats the same answer over and over. Before FA he spent a long time answering questions and the only thing he said was "the Texans don't have cap money so they can't sign big names." When someone asked who he thought they might go after his response was "how am I supposed to know" basically. I can't stand the guy...went from being a good football guy to a toad who is grouchy and who knows nothing.

Default Re: Arian Foster pulls hamstring in his first 2011 practice

Another example of under reporting injuries. Initially, "tight" (cramped) hamstring and removed from practice "as a precaution"..........to "pulled" (which is a mild tear already) hamstring. Don't be surprised if the next report relates "torn" (significant tear) hamstring.

He's been in Canton Ohio for the Hall of Fame ceremonies, it wouldn't be his job to report what went on in camp Friday. If you're going to bash someone at least let it be for something he'd be responsible for.

Not to get nit-picky, because I agree with your point, while TC may be better than anyone actually "On staff", it doesn't get the Chronicle off the hook. Case in point - one of Steph's most recent tweets:

Quote:

Alas, I likely am done w/ #Texans at camp reports thru MNF game. Fun family obligations. At least I got you thru when public camps happen
C'mon Chron - show some embarrassment that you're two best and most relevant Texans writers are unpaid (I think) bloggers and do right by your readers.

Editorial comment: Used to absolutely love John McClain, and still can't really find it in me to dislike him even now - just don't see how his current role does much to increase my knowledge of the Texans, or the enjoyment of being a NFL fan. On the otherhand, LZ and TC rock.

I can't believe I'm going to be a McLain apologist but although Stephanie does have the best blog besides possible Feighen on the Chronicle, LZ is the most over rated blogger in the history of blogs. He comes up with an occasional very good blog but more often than not its drivel. Although he and Granato have the most creative radio sports show in Houston radio.

When Melanie Hauser was let go as the Texans beat writer they took McLain from and NFL writer which he was very good at to the Texans beat writer which made him someone who reports Texans news and not the opinion/editorial writer he was and is best at. To use an example of something he called out months ago was that the Texans wouldn't win the Nmandi sweepstakes and would be better off going after Joseph and a safety. He got blasted constantly for that opinion but it turned out he was dead on the money. Just because the butt heads that populate his blogs seem clueless or ask the same question 10,000 times a chat doesn't mean he's terrible.

And it only took 7 posts to get the the obligatory "he must of been slacking off" post. Arian Foster wasn't off being a "TV star" and he has been training this summer. He's been working with his brother all offseason, the same thing he did last offseason. Why the heck do people have to automatically slam a player just because he suffered a injury? Pulled hammies happen all the time...and they even happen to well trained athletes.

LMAO, you honestly think a player who played with a torn knee ligament out of fear of losing his job isn't going to work and train in the offseason? Really?

That's the concern Foster has. If he misses too much time, Tate gets the carries and may take Foster's job. In a perfect world, I would like to see Foster get 15 carries a game, Ward get about 10, and Tate get 7. If we can run 32 times a game, I think we win.

See, you think the fact we didn't end up with Nnamdi proved him right, and I very much disagree with that position. I also don't remember a single instance (prior to it being made clear that the Texans believed they could clear significant cap room if and when needed) where McClain predicted they would (or should) go after Joseph. Got any sources on that (prior to the time it became obvious to everyone)?

He got blasted for the comment because his main (and virtually only) rationale for why the Texans wouldn't get Nnamdi was because they would never be able to fit him under the cap. He was also on record as late as mid-July as saying the Texans couldn't afford any of the top FA's (Which Joseph was universally considered to be).

Quote:
Can the Texans make cap space for a big FA? - John McClain went on the radio this morning and said that there’s no way the Texans can sign Nnamdi Asomugha or a top free agent because of the team’s cap situation. First of all, consider the source. McClain is certainly well-connected and often has the inside scoop… but cap talk is not his area of expertise. It’s not mine either, but I’m good at stuff like… thinking and reasoning. We don’t yet know what the new salary cap will be. Some have said $120 million. Some have said $127 million. Some have said that the salary floor is actually going to be $120 million. Hopefully by the end of the week some more light will be shed on the issue.
LINK

And a tweet from McClain:

Quote:
McClain_on_NFL John McClain
I'll be shocked if the Texans sign Asomugha. They're up against the cap and have a lot of needs. Won't put all their eggs in his basket.
As we know, most sources believe that the Texans actually offered more than the Eagles, so cap room (or lack thereof) was clearly not a problem they felt was insurmountable. Additionally, the fact that they did so indicated they either were putting all of their eggs in one basket, or they felt they could still clear up enough room to add a safety. We'll never know which.
