After spending the last couple of days on the sideline, Arian Foster returned to action on the fifth day of training camp. During his absence, O'Brien had said that the Texans were simply being cautious with Foster, so it is good to see him back on the field in a timely manner (Source: Houston Chronicle)

Fantasy Impact: Prospective owners can breathe a sigh of relief, as the Texans featured back seems to be over the hamstring/back issues that ailed him Sunday. However, they are not out of the woods yet, as Foster still must demonstrate that he is fully removed from the chronic problems that necessitated season-ending surgery last season. It would be wise to continually monitor his status as camp progresses.

During a group session on Sunday, Arian Foster began favoring his left hamstring and back. After stepping to the side and receiving some attention from a trainer, he tried one more rep on the field before calling it quits. He was given a cart ride back to NRG stadium. Head coach Bill O'Brien said afterwards "as far as I know he's OK." (Source: CBS Houston)

Fantasy Impact: Although much too early to sound the alarm, this news is certainly disconcerting for those looking to draft the six-year veteran. Foster is expected to be leaned upon heavily in all aspects of the offense, so the fact that he couldn't make it through two days of training camp without injury is cause for concern. Granted, several players experienced cramps today as their bodies continue to adjust to Houston's heat and humidity, but Foster should be monitored to make sure that this does not become a trend or cause him to miss substantial time.

Another hammy issue in camp is troubling for Foster, who can't seem to stay healthy. Nevertheless, if he gives owners 16 games he is a bargain at the end of round one.

Solid 4.5 YPC in injury-plagued '13, but HOU offense limited TD opps, which is still a concern

When you draft Foster you draft for his incredible upside. He is 28 and coming off back surgery, but I would love to have Foster on my bench with his awesome upside.

Foster was a downer in 2013 but he's a prime bounce back candidate. With Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, Houston will have to be run heavy to compete.

Coming off of back surgery, it's hard to predict what kind of player Foster will be in 2014. His high volume of work in recent seasons gives you concern but if you can get him as the 15th back off the board or close, I wouldn't hesitate.

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) After being limited to just 8 games in 2013 due to a back injury, there is at least a shadow of doubt hanging over Arian Foster. However, that only adds to the potential draft day appeal. We all know

He's coming off back surgery, but should be ready for training camp and should be the starting back in Houston. I would hesitate to draft him in the first five rounds, there are a lot of concerns about health and overuse from 2010 to 2012 that is causing these injuries to surface. The Texans also have an awful quarterback situation and an unhappy Andre Johnson, which could create a lot of defenders in the box.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster's role as the go-to back is a thing of the past, if you listen to head coach Bill O'Brien. Cory is listening, but does he trust the Bill Belichick disciple?
