HOUSTON -- Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is still recovering from a right calf strain, but said Saturday that he feels good and shouldnt be out of camp much longer. Foster rushed for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns last year for his third straight 1,200-yard season. The Texans placing him on the physically unable to perform list the night before the start of training camp was somewhat of a surprise. "I thought hed be ready to go, but (the team trainer) just thinks he needs a few days with them to work into the routine," coach Gary Kubiak said. "But hes had a good summer; hes been here every day. I expect him back pretty quickly." But they certainly arent going to rush their star running back onto the field only to have him suffer a setback. "I have played through a lot of things, but this is just something you cant and theres no reason to right now," he said. "Im just going to take my time and when I feel 100 per cent confident, Ill be ready." Foster spent the off-season using a different training regimen in an attempt to try and "reinvent" himself. He said the injury was what prompted the change, but that it ended up being beneficial because he thinks doing the same workouts too much could cause a plateau in performance. "I just want to harness my craft and hone it and be the best me I can be," Foster said. "Ultimately, if Im the best me for my team then that helps us get wins. I think thats what every athletes goal should be: just be the best for them and to be part of a unit." Foster and the Texans were unhappy that they lost steam down the stretch in 2012, losing three of their last four regular-season games, which kept them from gaining homefield advantage and a playoff bye. But more upsetting than that span to Foster was their loss to New England in the playoffs. "Anytime you dont win the last game of the seasson, its a disappointment," he said. Cheap 49ers Jerseys Free Shipping. . "I think going into the off-season, it helps, but its a part of the game. Losing is a part of the NFL. You can use it as your anchor or use it as your sail, so thats basically what we have done this off-season. We put it behind us and its time to move forward and try and develop a new identity for this organization and this city." Along with his training, Foster found time for a new hobby this off-season when he landed a part in a movie. It wasnt his first foray into acting as Foster had played himself in an episode of the television show "Hawaii Five-0" early this year. This role was different, though, as he competed against other candidates to gain the role without telling anyone who he was. "Thats probably what was the most gratifying thing for me," Foster said. "They didnt say: Hey, you want to be in a movie because youre an actual running back. They had me audition, so I had to audition. My audition tape was up against 100 other audition tapes and they felt like I was the best guy for the part." However the role didnt require a major stretch for Foster as he portrayed a football player in the upcoming movie called "Draft Day" starring Kevin Costner. In an interesting moment in the film, Foster, who went undrafted out of Tennessee, has a scene where he is drafted and takes the stage with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. "It was fake, man," Foster said of that moment. "You know what I mean? It wasnt genuine. It was acting. It wasnt like any vindication or anything like that. It was fun, I guess. I already know him. It was a joke, though. I finally got drafted five years into the league." Though he has never taken acting lessons, Foster said he was involved in theatre as a child and once starred in a middle school production of Shakespeares "Macbeth." Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
