Houston Texans head coach Garu Kubiak says he has been “very impresses” with the work of RB Derrick Ward lately and that he envisions a scenario where he takes on more carries from incumbent Arian Foster. Foster has been one of the best running backs in the game this season but has cooled off after such a big start. Ward has a 1,000 yard season in his career and has played well when given the opportunities this year.
Analysis: This cant be taken as good news for Arian Foster owners. The shine is starting to come off on everyone’s favorite waiver wire gem and Ward taking some carries hurts. Either way lets not panic here and give coach Kubiak the benefit of the doubt that he wont all of a sudden start taking chances away from his best running back.
