Arian Foster A Game-Time Decision Sunday Vs. Dolphins

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster will be a game-time decision for Sunday's season opener against the Miami Dolphins, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said during a media availability after practice Friday.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Kubiak said he's optimistic Foster will play. But McClain tweeted that Kubiak "didn't sound real encouraging" when discussing Foster's status.

Foster was pulled from practice after complaining of knee soreness Thursday, Kubiak said, and he did not practice Friday. An MRI was already taken on Foster's knee, and the results didn't find anything to worry about.

Linebacker Brooks Reed was also injured in a non-contact drill Thursday and did not practice Friday, and he's also a game-time decision for Kubiak against the Dolphins.

Foster led the NFL in rushing yards and touchdowns in 2010, and he rushed for 1,224 yards and 10 touchdowns in 13 games last season.

If Foster were to miss Sunday's game, the Texans' primary rusher would be Ben Tate. Tate ran for 942 yards and four touchdowns last season as a rookie.
