There has been incremental progress for sidelined Texans running back D’Onta Foreman.
The former Doak Walker Award winner and consensus All-American remains on the physically unable to perform list and is still expected to return to practice at some point this season.
Foreman tore his Achilles tendon last November against the Arizona Cardinals while scoring a touchdown.

Texans coach Bill O’Brien was noncommittal on when the Texas City native will start practicing. Under NFL rules governing players on the PUP list, once they return to practice, it starts a 21-day window for them to be either be activated before or at the end of that time or remain out for the remainder of the season.
“Sure, yes," O’Brien said when asked if Foreman is nearly ready to practice. "Not sure the date of that, but yes he is definitely closer.”
