It appears Arian Foster’s days with the Houston Texans are over. After six seasons with the team, the Texans will cut Foster, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Foster ran for 6,472 yards for the Texans and had four seasons in which he ran for over 1,000 yards. However, his career was often plagued by injury. The latest occurred when Foster suffered a season-ending Achilles injury in October.
Foster, who played at Tennessee from 2005 to 2008, ran for 2,964 yards as a Vol. That ranks him No. 2 on Tennessee’s all-time rushing leader list. Foster has more rushing attempts than any Vol with 650. However, he was often the subject of fan criticism for some untimely fumbles.
Foster has been an unusual figure compared to his colleagues. At Tennessee, he once conducted an interview speaking like a pterodactyl. In the NFL, he has spoken openly about his atheism and recently said he no longer enjoys watching football. Sporting News called Foster “The most interesting man in the NFL” in 2012.
