Originally drafted by the Houston Texans in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Foreman has rushed for 326 career rushing yards on 85 carries (3.8 ypc avg) and 2 rushing touchdowns in 11 games (1 start). He has also amassed 8 receptions for 111 career receiving yards (13.9 ypr avg) and a touchdown reception. Last season, Foreman appeared in just one game, rushing for -1 yards on 7 carries—having spent time on the Texans’ PUP list recovering from a torn Achilles. While Foreman struggled with his weight and explosiveness last season, ultimately, the 23 year old running back was waived by the Texans for “poor work habits” and being late to team meetings.Still, Foreman remains young and talented. However Youth Eric Ebron Jersey , any continued immaturity issues will not stand in Indianapolis, where general manager Chris Ballard has built a locker room culture founded on accountability and hard work. With veteran back Spencer Ware being recently placed on PUP, the Colts had a need for a power back. At 6’1”, 236 pounds, Foreman has the unquestioned size to effectively run between the tackles in short-yardage situations. Unlike his former team though, the Colts have significantly less invested in Foreman, so any work ethic issues Eric Ebron Jersey Stitched , and he’ll be quickly granted his walking papers. It’s also no lock that Foreman earns a job outright either, as he faces formidable competition from the likes of Jonathan Williams for the team’s 4th running back spot—which requires reliable special teams play.That being said, it’s a worthwhile roll of the dice by Ballard. One that is low risk, high reward—while potentially sticking it to the Colts’ divisional rival in the process—should Foreman impress in Indianapolis.Andrew Luck to start Colts preseason opener, play the first quarter For those trying to decide whether it is worth it to tune in tomorrow for the Colts’ first preseason game action against Seattle, perhaps it will persuade you a bit to know that the tentative plan for quarterback Andrew Luck as far as playing time goes is to start the game and play for most if not all of the first quarter. When addressing the media on Tuesday, head coach Frank Reich said that Luck would start and would play through a “range of plays and situations” that they want to hit with Luck and that they will keep things fluid as far as how much playing time he would get. Reich joked that it would be a quarter Youth Ryan Grant Jersey , “give or take a half a quarter.”Reich repeatedly talked about seeking rhythm as one of the primary things they’ll look for out of Luck’s play early in the game, emphasizing the need to control the rush of adrenaline that will come with being back in football. He is looking to see Luck get the ball out quickly and move down the field.If you were hoping to see something evolutionary on the offensive side of the ball, you might be disappointed. When asked about the likelihood of Luck operating the “no huddle” on Thursday, Reich shot the idea down.“Probably not. You know, it’s preseason so we’ll stay pretty basic.”Reich isn’t looking to show his hand before the games count, so expect the offense to be vanilla. However, vanilla offense with Andrew Luck at the helm is a whole lot more exciting than most of what we got in 2017 Ryan Grant Jersey Stitched , so it could still be a lot of fun to watch. While this game won’t count, it will matter a lot as the next major in Luck’s progress toward a full return. A strong showing will go a long way to calm the fears of Colts fans who are still wary, and will quiet some of the questions outside of Indianapolis about what the Colts should expect out of Luck this season. The game kicks off at 10pm EDT tomorrow. Check here to find out how you can watch or listen.
