HOUSTON (AP) — Houston coach Gary Kubiak expects running back Arian Foster to play on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Foster returned to practice this week after missing the season opener because of a left hamstring injury. Kubiak says Foster “looks ready to play.”

While Foster should return Sunday, the Texans will be without running back Derrick Ward who is out with a sprained right ankle.
Receiver Kevin Walter remained out of practice Friday with an injured left shoulder and Kubiak says he will be a game time decision.
