Foster: 'More than likely' ready for camp

By Paul Kuharsky

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster says he should be on track to return from his calf strain in time for the team’s summer work.

The running back told Ross James of FoxSports.com he will “more than likely” be ready for training camp.

“It’s just a small calf strain," he said on the set of a Foot Locker Under Armour commercial. “News is dry in the offseason, so it made headlines.”

Foster also spoke of the possibility that the Texans bring back fullback Vonta Leach. Leach left Houston as a free agent two years ago, and helped Baltimore win a Super Bowl. But the Ravens recently cut him in a cost cutting move and his agent told two outlets the Texans have expressed interest in a return, a move I don't think would be wise.

“Obviously, I have played with Vonta before and I know his game and we work well together,” Foster said. “He’s one of the best fullbacks in the league, if not the best. We just signed Greg Jones and that’s what the NFL is all about. It’s about competition. I’m not sure if [the Texans] will make that move, but if they do, it will be a competition during camp.”
