HOUSTON – Texans fans came out to cheer on their favorite players and one player was set to debut at Sunday’s scrimmage.

Arian Foster was supposed to take part in practice, but it was not to be.

Texans head coach Kubiak says, “I expected him today and it didn`t happen. Guys, his calf is fine. His back is sore. Hey, keep going day-to-day.”

The other running backs in camp have been working hard to make an impression and it seems to be working.

Kubiak says, “Yeah, it`s a really good group. There are four young men, they haven`t missed a day. They`re a lot alike in a lot of ways. They`re all handling pass protection, which is impressive to me. We`re going to find us another back out of this deal. What an opportunity for them.”

One person the Texans can’t afford to lose is J.J. Watt. the NFL’s defensive MVP had to walk away from drills at one point with elbow soreness.

Kubiak says.  “He`ll be out here tomorrow, whether we limit his contact tomorrow. He just had a sore elbow.’

Watt adds, “I’ve been working it really hard the last week or so, and it got a little bit sore so I’m bringing the brace back mainly as a precaution, and I’ll be wearing it from here on out.”

Even though Watt isn’t a fan of the brace, the league got to see firsthand that it didn’t slow him down any last season, and can expect more of the same in 2013.
