Normally an injury to another team’s star player wouldn’t end up on this site, but this is a major injury that changes the face of the AFC South. With Foster likely headed to short term I.R. he will have to miss the first eight games of the season at least.

If you are wondering, the Tennessee Titans do play the Houston Texans once in that span so they will get the benefit of a playing that struggling offense.

The real struggle for this team will be their schedules after Arian Foster’s return, if he does come back right after Week 8. In their last eight games, the Texans face three 2014 playoff teams, the staunch defenses of the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills, and the New Orleans Saints. Not exactly a picnic.

  • While this doesn’t eliminate them from contention for the division crown, I would say that based off of what this team looked like without Foster two years ago and what Blake Bortles looks like all the time the Tennessee Titans really should be considered the second most likely team to contend for this AFC South title.

    While I don’t think it will happen this year, this injury did just skew the odds more in the Tennessee Titans favor.

    The 28 year old running back has been leaned on heavily over the past three years and has sustained injuries each year. This looks like it could be the price for the Houston Texans being so reliant on the running back position over the last few years.
