Texans Start Training Camp Shorthanded

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 10:47 PM CDT

It's an age-old sports cliche: "It's not how you start, it's how you finish."

While the Houston Texans are more worried about January than July, the two-time defending AFC South division champions certainly did not expect to start like this. Two of the Texans' most talented players were on the Physically Unable to Perform list as Houston opened up training camp Friday morning.

Those two players are Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster and future Hall of Famer Ed Reed. Foster is nursing a calf injury, while Reed, an offseason acquisition, still is not healthy following hip surgery.

Reed is expected to be out for several more weeks, but the outlook for Arian is much better.

"He's doing really good," said Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. "It was a bit of a surprise to me because i thought he'd be ready to go. But Kap (Head Athletic Trainer Geoff Kaplan) and they just think he needs a few days with them to work into the routine. But he’s had a good summer; he’s been here every day. I expect him back pretty quickly.”

Foster, who rushed for more than 1,400 yards and scored 15 touchdowns a year ago, injured his calf during offseason workouts.
