After leaving Sunday’s game with an irregular heartbeat, Texans running back Arian Foster insisted he was fine.

That’s proven to be the case, as Foster was cleared to return to practice today, according to Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Foster participated in all his scheduled practice reps. Foster saw a cardiologist Monday who confirmed there was no problem.

The Texans need Foster back on the field in their attempt to hang onto the top seed in the AFc playoffs, but more importantly, Foster needs to make sure he’s well.
