Fantasy Update: Houston Texas running back Arian Foster is out Sunday in the team's game against the New Orleans Saints, according to a report.
The Houston Chronicle said on Sunday that Foster was made inactive because of a hamstring injury. Ben Tate will start once again in Foster's place, and Steve Slaton will back him up.
Among the inactive players for the Saints are three starters including receiver Marques Colston, cornerback Tracy Porter and middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma.
Foster didn't play in the Texans season opening win over the Indianapolis Colts, either. In Week 2, he played sparingly, getting 10 carries for 33 yards after sitting out the second half.
Houston coach Gary Kubiak said that despite the strong fill-in play by Tate, who opened his career with back-to-back 100 yard rushing games, Foster will regain his starting role when he's healthy enough to play.
