Arian Foster has spent three hours (and counting!) of this pleasant Sunday afternoon on Twitter, detailing his ability to successfully fight a wolf in a one-on-one match. As one does:
Dolphins running back Arian Foster announced his retirement from the NFL this evening, a day after playing in the Dolphins’ win over the Bills. Here’s his full statement, via UNINTERRUPTED, where he says that his body “just can’t take the punishment this game asks for any longer.”
The Broward County sheriff’s union is calling for an end to police escorts that protect the Miami Dolphins in response to four players kneeling in protest during the national anthem last week.
Miami Dolphins players Arian Foster, Jelani Jenkins, Kenny Stills, and Michael Thomas all kneeled during the national anthem before today’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
On Wednesday, the Falcons cut Roddy White. On Thursday, the Texans released Arian Foster. Today, the Colts told Andre Johnson that he’s gone. These are depressing roster moves, and not so much because of how great these players once were—but because these are indisputably smart and correct decisions. Football aging…
Arian Foster left today’s blowout against the Dolphins with an Achilles injury, after he went down without contact accelerating out of pre-snap motion. As you can see above, he knew something was wrong as soon as he started to run. Almost immediately, he was ruled out for the game.
Arian Foster underwent groin surgery today, the Texans are hopeful his recovery time could be less than three months. Foster could be placed on an IR that would allow him to return to play in Week 9.
Arian Foster injured his groin at Monday night’s practice, and the fear is that the Texans running back might need surgery, according to ESPN’s Tania Ganguli:
In case the Ravens forgot, they're getting handled by the Case Keenum-led Texans. Arian Foster helpfully directed them to the scoreboard. (He's also thrown for a touchdown today.)
Arian Foster went left. Tom Savage went right. The Colts went to town.
Arian Foster entertained the Houston media today by speaking at his locker in a British accent. Everyone was sufficiently amused, since Foster also provided usable answers to questions. The Texans running back finished the session with a "Cheerio."
Arian Foster says everyone hates Thursday football and it's dangerous for players. It also pulls in hundreds of millions a year, so neither the owners nor the PA will be pushing to get rid of it anytime soon. [Chronicle]
After Arian Foster gave the exact same answer 11 times in a 90-second interview, he got a letter from the NFL threatening a fine if he didn't start being more cooperative with the media. So Foster agreed to an interview with reporters after yesterday's practice, and he added a few twists to his old routine.
Arian Foster formally talked to media today for the first time since last season ended, but he didn't give them anything useful. The Texans running back basically repeated the same answer, about trying to be the best teammate he can be, for a minute and a half before peacing out. Though some Texans beat writers on…
Some dude is apparently pretending to be Arian Foster, or at least didn't correct this woman when she posed for a photo with him.
So much for the dumbest business idea of the year. Last month, Arian Foster announced that fans would be able to buy stock in his future earnings as a "brand", which was preposterous for a number of reasons we listed at the time (read those below). This month, Arian Foster is out for the season, and his partner…
Arian Foster is partnering with a company called Fantex Holdings to offer you, the grotesque fan, a chance to buy a minority stake in his future earnings. It's a not-all-that-shocking-but-come-on-still-what-the-hell kind of deal. But it's also kind of bullshit.
