Arian Foster has a message for fantasy leaguers

Texans running back Arian Foster aggravated his hamstring injury on Saturday night, which is a concern for the Texans with the season opener only two weeks away.

Oh, and all the folks drafting Foster in fantasy leagues first overall are feeling anxious too. Foster has a message for them:

“For those sincerely concerned, I’m doing ok & plan to be back by opening day,” Foster wrote on Twitter. “For those worried about your fantasy team, you people are sick.” (Edited for clarity.)

We certainly enjoy fantasy football, but don’t blame Foster at all for his response. There’s a line you don’t cross, and he probably got about 150 messages from folks saying “I JUST DRAFTED YOU DON’T MESS THIS UP!!!”

Texans coach Gary Kubiak remained optimistic Foster could get ready in time. Nothing in his hamstring “popped.”

“We don’t think it’s anything worse than what we were dealing with before,” Kubiak said after the game.
