Quotable Monday: Arian Foster updates his status, talks about new coaches


In this week’s edition of Quotable Monday, Houston Texans’ running backArian Foster has sounded off on his thoughts heading into this season while giving an update on his health, after he missed a large chunk of last season recovering from back surgery.

According to the Houston Chronicle, last Wednesday, Foster had the following to say:

“I’m really excited about working with the new staff. They’re good guys. They want to win. That’s all you can ask,” he mentioned at The Woodlands.

“As far as (former coaches) Chick (Harris) and Kubes (Gary Kubiak) and Rick (Dennison), I love those guys to death. They gave me my first shot. I talked to them before they left. They had to move on, and so did we. That’s just part of the business.”

When talking about his new role in Bill O’Brien’s offense, Foster stated that “Coach O’Brien has expressed to me how he wants to use me out of the backfield. That’s one of my strengths. We still have a lot of zone runs in this offense, (but) every offense does. We’re going to have a lot of different alignments.”
