Foster Says Strained Calf No Big Deal

Arian Foster

Arian Foster was carted off the team’s practice field last month with a strained calf and there were worries abut how his readiness for the start of training camp. The franchise running back told Ross Jones of on not to worry, he’s on the right path to recovery.

“Yeah, it’s going good man,” Foster said in an exclusive interview on the set of a Foot Locker Under Armour commercial. “It’s just a small calf strain. News is dry in the offseason, so it made headlines.”

When asked if he’ll be ready for training camp, Foster quipped: “Yeah, more than likely.”

While the calf strain isn’t that serious, Foster’s recovery has been aided by spending time inside a hyperbaric chamber.

“I try to get in there once a day. I try to get in there for 45 minutes or an hour or two hours. Some guys believe in it, some guys don’t.

“It creates the white blood cells in your body and helps with oxygen flow to promote the healing process and recovery. I feel like it works.”
