Texans running back Arian Foster doesn’t have a timeline for the calf strain that landed him on the physically unable to perform list. One thing he knows though is that it’s not a good idea to rush an injury like this.

“You can’t play through it” Foster said. “It’s not like you’re playing through a broken collar bone. I’ve played through a lot of things this is just something you can’t. There’s no reason to right now. I’m just going to take my time. When I feel 100 percent confident I’ll be back. It’s just got some light soreness in there. I can do pretty much everything. We’re just going to take it day by day.”

Foster can be taken off active/PUP at any time. If he’s on it after second cuts he will have to stay on it for the first six weeks of the regular season. Nobody at Texans camp is expecting this to go that far though.

He suffered the calf strain during organized team activities and spent the rest of the offseason rehabbing.
