The Houston Texas are yet suffering another blow as now Arian Foster has confirmed he will miss the rest of the season while he undergoes back surgery. Foster is battling a lumbar spine issue and hoped to avoid surgery. The Texans (2-6) will now have to rely on running back Ben Tate.

Although things aren’t good for the Texas as a team, Tate has a great opportunity at hand if he wants to be picked up in free agency this summer. This weekend Tate will be playing through four cracked ribs which means Dennis Johnson will be expected to take more touches.
