Texans running back Arian Foster, who left Sunday’s loss to the Vikings with an illness that was later determined to be an irregular heartbeat, was back at practice Wednesday.
“Arian’s fine,” coach Gary Kubiak told the team’s official website. “He’s been cleared. Took all his normal reps he would take on a Wednesday.”
The Texans were manhandled by the Vikings and can’t pound away at teams with Foster on the bench. Ben Tate has been a reliable stand-in for Foster on occasion, but Houston already has too many replacements on the field heading into what should be a brutal AFC playoff derby.
