Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Houston Texans running back Arian Foster will miss the rest of the Texans’ organized team activities after straining his right calf Tuesday.

“He’s on crutches for a couple days,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday. “He’s gonna be fine, but don’t expect me to bring him back out here. We’ve got two weeks left [in the off-season], so we’ll just go to work and get him ready for training camp…Unfortunate, but we feel lucky, too. [Foster] didn’t do anything, just took a step. But he’s gonna be OK. But like I said, don’t expect to see him again [in OTAs].”

With Foster out, Ben Tate will play the role of the Texans’ starting running back.

Foster, a three-time Pro Bowler, rushed for 1,424 yards,15 touchdowns and caught 40 balls for Houston last season.
