INJURY ENDS FOREMAN’S PROMISING ROOKIE SEASON WITH TEXANS

WHAT SHOULD have been the banner day of D’Onta Foreman’s young career
turned out to be yet another bolt of bad luck for the Texans when coach Bill O’Brien
announced on Monday that the Texas City native would be out indefinitely with an
apparent Achilles injury Foreman sustained during his 34-yard touchdown run in
Sunday’s win over the Cardinals.
“I would say it probably doesn’t look great to be able to play,” said O’Brien about the
status of Foreman.
Foreman rushed for 65 yards on 10 carries and scored the first two touchdowns of
his NFL career, bursting through for a 3-yard scoring before his second touchdown
locked up Houston’s 31-21 victory. He was carted off the field to the cheers of the NRG
Stadium crowd, ending a day he called “bittersweet.”
“Whoever hit, just kind of twisted it, I guess, and I fell” said Foreman after the game.
“I was just happy I was by the end zone, so it worked out.”
Multiple reports on Monday said that Foreman would be out for the remainder of
the season, becoming the latest of an injury-riddled Texans squad with quarterback
Deshaun Watson, defensive end J.J. Watt and linebacker Whitney Mercilus. The team
also lost cornerback Kevin Johnson to a concussion on Sunday and could be without
receiver Will Fuller for Monday night’s game at the Ravens.
The loss of Foreman costs the Texans their second-leading rusher, as he recorded
327 yards on 78 carries while also catching eight passes for 83 yards. Alfred Blue and
Jordan Todman will now compete to grab the position behind starter Lamar Miller.
“D’Onta was starting to really play well, obviously, in that game,” said O’Brien. “He
was really starting to understand our offense. So, it’s just one of those things. It’s tough.
It’s tough for him, but he’s a young player, so he will be back.”
With the win, the Texans improved to 4-6 and kept their slim playoff hopes alive.
Houston is the 11th seed in the AFC postseason chase and will face a Baltimore team
that sits at 5-5 yet would edge out Buffalo for the sixth and final playoff spot going into
Week 12.
