Arian Foster to have season-ending back injury

Not only will the Texans will be without running back Arian Foster (back) today in Arizona, but they will be without him for the remainder of the season.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Foster will have season-ending back surgery and the team will place him on injured reserve.

With Foster done for the year, it will be Ben Tate's opportunity to shine in the final year of his contract although Tate is playing through his own injury (four cracked ribs).

For Week 10, Tate is my 20th-ranked fantasy running back against the Cardinals, who have allowed the fourth-fewest rushing yards this season.

On the season, Tate has 88 carries for 399 yards and one touchdown in addition to a career-high 17 receptions for 54 yards.

With the loss of Foster, Dennis Johnson, who is owned in only 15 percent of Yahoo! leagues, should be added in most formats. Johnson had eight carries for 36 yards last week and he could see 8-10 touches per game going forward.
