    Lol, it's the same "conjecture" your orthopod uses when you describe what happened to your foot.

    I'm not sure how to better explain it to you. A Jones fracture is a stress fracture of the 5th metatarsal. Dr. Chao reported it as a Jones fracture.

    Wrong, nothing was said about giving body time to rest. You're having trouble grasping what conditioning for a pro football player entails.

    No, you're reaching for a whine. His history with the Texans is what it is. It has zero to do with drugs or alcohol.

    This is plain wrong. This was never reported as a Jones fracture. You can have multiple fractures of the 5th that are not considered a Jones fracture. A stress fracture of the 5th, which was reported by Dr. Chao and everyone else, is in itself a different injury than a Jones fracture.

    Furthermore, a Jones fracture almost always requires surgery while even Dr. Chao said he'll be fine with just letting it heal.

    You have yet to explain how Foreman has a history of not putting in recovery work other than BoB saying his conditioning needed improvement. Yes conditioning includes recovery but to say that must be what BoB also meant is reaching. Neither him nor anyone else has ever mentioned recovery work with regards to Foreman while he has given multiple players days off for this reason specifically.

    Just think of guys like Crabtree and Brent Grimes then hope that Foreman fares as well.

    Texans RB D'Onta Foreman could begin the season on the reserve/PUP list.
    That would make him unavailable for the team's first six regular season games. Foreman tore his Achilles in November but has since been setback-free and rumored to be ready for Week 1. A healthy preseason would not only prove his readiness for the regular season, it could also allow Foreman to open 2018 in a starting role over teammate Lamar Miller. - Houston Chronicle

    Yeah, by most accounts he's doing fine (if not ahead of schedule?) but Aaron Wilson says...

    "The Texans will likely have to wait until the start of the regular season or perhaps the sixth game of the year for running back D'Onta Foreman to fully recover from a torn Achilles suffered in December."

    Going to take a rb in the draft it seems. Would love for Chubb or Sony but that’s a pipe dream

    I don't think we can or should assume that he'll ever be a contributor to the team again. If it happens, awesome, but we have to assume he won't.

    I'd love for Foreman to make it back all the way...but majority of athletes who tear their Achilles often loose a ton of explosiveness. The Texans will draft a RB, and might be in the market for a cheap vet.

    The only RB to make it back from this type of injury was Andre Brown and he went from a promising all around RB to a goal line back who was out of the league in a couple of years.

    It doesn't look good for Foreman.
