Fair enough. However, I've got ten fumbles, 6 in the last year. I'll assume three were fumbles recovered by the Texans. Again, not a big concern, just something he has become somewhat known for in opposing locker rooms (according to articles here and there). That can lead to defenses going after the football with a little extra umf.

It would come as no surprise if it never comes up (or out, as it were) this coming year.

I was going off ESPN's stats. It has him fumbling the ball seven times in 659 rushing attempts and only losing four, while fumbling the ball twice (losing both) in 127 catches. So overall Foster has fumbled the ball nine times (five last year) in 786 touches.

So, yeah... Looking at Fosters stats at fball-ref... same number of carries & catches but it has him fumbling one more time last year than ESPN's does. Not sure why they added one that ESPN left out...

If you include the post-season (which I believe FB Reference does), they both have him fumbling 6 times last season. Five RS fumbles, and one fumble in the playoff game vs. the Ravens.

The post-season statistics weren't added on FB Reference. At least the 51 carries for 285 yards weren't...

Well I guess they don't count it as a fumble when you recover it yourself. In the first playoff game he lost the ball twice. The first time he caught it in the air and the second time he had to fight for it on the ground. The ball has came out of his hands 4 times in the last 9 quarters. Thats why I'm a little concerned.

Yeah, you're right. PFR doesn't list fumbles in their individual game logs (at least not that I can find), so there's no way to tell exactly where they're different. NFL.com and Texans.com both have 5 regular season fumbles (and one post-season) just like ESPN does, so it appears the PFR is incorrect on that one.

Foster & Tate tied for second worst "rush" fumbles in 2011.

..........................attempts.fumbles
Ben Tate.......HST.....175.....4
Arian Foster...HST.....278.....4

Foster is listed with 2 "receiving" fumbles, tied for worst among RBs. Tate, none.

Cedric Benson and Ryan Mathews each had 5. There were then 4 RB's with 4. Of those Foster had the most attempts and Tate had the least.

Your attempt numbers are way off.

Man i hope Pro's dont read message boards, if Foster was to stop by some of u would have him convinced he is a fumble machine haha. Foster carried this team past the bengals in the play-offs and nearly got us past the Ravens, and yet we are concerned over a "few" fumbles. Hell lets bring Johnathon Wells back he rarely ever fumbled

Tate fumbled the same number of times last year on 100 less carries. Hopefully the Texans don't overreact like their fans.

Foster only had 1 carry and it was 11 yards. They seemed to be wanting to test out the passing game, which is understandable, and then when they did run it was always with tate. Tate is a good back no doubt but Foster is a special back, one that can carry a team on his back if he needs to.
