Grabbing the back of his left leg in the end zone Sunday afternoon, Texans rookie running back D'Onta Foreman simultaneously experienced the agony of a ruptured Achilles tendon and the joy of scoring the second touchdown of his NFL career. The Texas City native and third-round draft pick from Texas suffered a season-ending injury during the end of a 34-yard touchdown jaunt that sealed a 31-21 victory against the Arizona Cardinals. A magnetic resonance imaging exam will be conducted Monday to confirm the initial diagnosis about Foreman's Achilles, which will require surgery to repair the damage. He'll be placed on injured reserve. "It was a bittersweet day," Foreman said in the locker room after the game while on crutches. Foreman rushed for 65 yards on 10 carries. His 3-yard touchdown run, the first score of his career, earlier in the game represented the game-winning score. He finished the season with 327 yards on 78 carries.
