Fantasy football injury news is not good for the Houston Texans. Andre Johnson and Arian Foster have injury concerns heading into the Week 7 game with the Kansas City Chiefs and are currently listed as questionable on the updated reports. According to a report from ESPN on Thursday (Oct. 17), both players are still hampered by injuries that could affect their availability on Sunday (Oct. 20).
Foster is dealing with a hamstring problem and was unable to practice with the team on Thursday. The running back is also trying to get through chest and thumb ailments, so he is already pretty banged up this season. At this point he hasn't been ruled out for the game, though, so fantasy football owners will want to keep him active until advised otherwise. He remains a must-start against the Chiefs, especially with a rookie quarterback getting ready to play.
Johnson has a shin issue that is slowing him down and he was limited in practice on Thursday. He is banged up going into his first game with Case Keenum at quarterback, raising some pretty big concerns about whether he will be able to produce. The Chiefs secondary has been really good this season, so it is a risky start at best. This fantasy football injury news indicates that owners should probably look in a different direction for Week 7.
