Gary Kubiak says Arian Foster is 'day-to-day'

Now that we've gotten Peyton Manning's immediate injury concern out of the way -- he's just not going to play during Week 1 -- everyone can turn their attention to the Colts opponent, the Texans, and their star running back Arian Foster.

Foster, as you've likely heard, is dealing with a hamstring injury that resulted in some awkward Twitter encounters and even some handsome jokers who run a popular podcast calling him up to talk.

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak addressed Foster's injury and was about as vague as you would expect.

"He went a little harder [Wednesday] in his rehab process," Kubiak said. "He'll be day-to-day. I think he's improved every day. The progress has been very good, and I know that there was more progress today."

We'd kind of assumed that Foster would play and, frankly, Kubes comments seem like a bit of injury-report gamesmanship. Or not.

"If Arian’s full speed and can play, we want him to play," Kubiak continued. "We need to be at our best to win a football game, but at the same time, we’ve got to listen to what’s going on. As I said all along, the progress has been very good and I know there was more progress today, so maybe this conversation is different tomorrow. I don’t know. We’ll see."

Yes, those people who drafted him in the first round root for the Texans probably just got a little sick to their stomach.

What's interesting about the Texans approach to this game is that the Colts are a seriously weakened team right now -- that's what happens when Peyton doesn't play. And Houston's seriously deep at running back, as Derrick Ward, Ben Tate and Steve Slaton back up Foster (in that order).

Foster still seems like a good bet to play, barring a setback between now and Sunday, but there's a really spicy and calculated gamble available for Kubiak here if he wants to give Foster an extra week to get healthy against his chief division rival while they're down on the ground.
