HOUSTON (AP)Coach Bill O’Brien said Monday that he doesn’t expect D’Onta Foreman to play again this season Whitney Mercilus Jersey , the latest blow to a Houston Texans team riddled with injuries. Foreman sustained what the team called a left ankle injury on Sunday after scoring his second fourth-quarter touchdown in a 31-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals which ended a three-game skid. O’Brien insisted on Monday that he didn’t have a lot of details on the running back’s injury but added that: ”It probably doesn’t look great (for him) to be able to play.” If Foreman can’t play again this season he’ll join defensive end J.J. Watt, linebacker Whitney Mercilus and quarterback Deshaun Watson on injured reserve. Foreman, who won the Doak Walker Award last season at Texas as the top collegiate running back, has seen limited playing time this season. His best game came on Sunday when he ran for a career-high 65 yards with his first two touchdowns. ”D’Onta was starting to really play well,” O’Brien said. ”He’s a big guy, a real tough, physical runner, good out of the backfield, in the passing game. Was really starting to understand our offense so it’s … tough for him. But he’s a young player Deshaun Watson Jersey , he’ll be back.” His injury comes after the Texans (4-6) got their offense going for the first time since Watson was injured on Nov. 2. Houston had scored 30 or more points in a franchise-record five straight games before Watson sustained a season-ending knee injury. Tom Savage was only able to lead the offense to two touchdowns combined in two losses in the first two games after Watson was hurt. Savage shook off two early turnovers on Sunday to throw for a career-best two touchdowns and help the Texans end their losing streak and stay in playoff contention. ”He was not discouraged at all,” O’Brien said. ”He was great on the sideline and came back and I thought he played a really good, tough football game.” Savage said the key to his success on Sunday was forgetting the problems he had in the past two games and early against the Cardinals and remaining convinced that he could do better than he had shown so far. ”You’re not going to get anywhere by sulking or holding your head down,” he said. ”As a quarterback, your team needs you out there to be the leader, so I am going to just go out there and keep slinging it and play confident. That’s really all I can do. I am confident in myself. I know I can do it.” O’Brien said Savage was aided on Sunday by other members of the offense playing better. He pointed to Houston running for 134 yards and singled out receivers Braxton Miller and Bruce Ellington for playing great against the Cardinals. Of course, Savage’s success was also helped by the continued great play of star receiver DeAndre Hopkins. He ranks third in the NFL with 879 yards receiving and his nine touchdown receptions lead the league. ”A lot of guys around him played well … I think that helped Tom,” O’Brien said. ”Guys around him playing well and then he had confidence once he started hitting some throws. So I think Tom did a good job.” The Texans will look to build on Sunday’s success as they prepare for a visit to Baltimore next Monday night. O’Brien said they might need to sign a running back to fill in for Foreman, but that he expects to have Alfred Blue back after he missed Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury. Blue has played sparingly this season as Houston relied on Lamar Miller and Foreman. But he has a history of filling in for injured players and has 1 Zach Cunningham Jersey ,689 yards rushing in four seasons with the team. — AP NFL website: and Veteran receiver Demaryius Thomas has been reunited with the man who made Thomas a first-round draft pick nine years ago. Whether it lasts into September remains to be seen.From the moment the former Broncos receiver signed with the Patriots, where former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels serves as the offensive coordinator, speculation has lingered that Thomas could go the way of other older players who for whatever reason didn’t mesh with the Patriot Way. Phil Perry of omits Thomas from a 53-man roster projection that has Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry, Phillip Dorsett, Dontrelle Inman, Braxton Berrios, and special-teams ace Matthew Slater as the six wideouts who’ll make the cut.Thomas received a $150,000 signing bonus on his one-year contract Lonnie Johnson Houston Texans Jersey , so there would be relatively minimal downside to cutting him.In April, Chris Simms pegged the chances of Thomas landing on the active regular-season roster at 50-50. If he does, Thomas could miss the first game of the season, if the league suspends him for an offseason automobile accident that resulted in injuries to a passenger and a guilty plea to misdemeanor charges.Since signing Thomas, the Patriots have drafted Harry and signed Inman. That naturally will make it harder for Thomas to make the team — especially since he’ll need to be high enough on the roster to avoid the special-teams obligations that usually fall to the fourth, fifth, and sixth receivers on the depth chart.
