Texans RB Arian Foster plays 1 series, leaves with back injury

Although Texans running back Arian Foster @ArianFoster was limited in practice during the week with a hamstring injury and was a true game-time decision, the Texans activated him for Sunday night's game against the Colts. Foster was on the field for the first couple of plays.
And that was the end of his night. Foster left the game due to what was called a back injury. He didn't touch the ball and was targeted once.

Fantasy Analysis:

A hamstring injury and a lower back injury could be connected, but we'll know more about Foster after the game or Monday. It's a raw deal for those who started him. You just move on, and hopefully you own Ben Tate @BenTateRB, who is playing through four cracked ribs and looks fine. Dennis Johnson is the only other healthy running back on the active roster tonight.

can't believe I traded Gronk for a washed up Foster (I have Graham or I wouldn't have).
