Foster, Johnson among sidelined Texans



HOUSTON (AP) — A week into training camp, some of the Houston Texans’ stars are already ailing.

Running back Arian Foster (hamstring), receiver Andre Johnson (dislocated finger) and linebacker Brian Cushing (knee) sat out the morning practice on Saturday.

Johnson hurt his left index finger on Tuesday, the Texans’ second day of practice. Foster pulled his left hamstring on Friday, and Cushing has been out all week while recovering from offseason knee surgery.

Coach Gary Kubiak says Johnson may return to practice on Sunday, and Foster will definitely miss “a few days.” Kubiak is hoping that Cushing returns by the middle of next week.

Tight end Owen Daniels was back on the field after sitting out practice on Friday with an illness.
