The Houston Texans loss to the Philadelphia Eagles dropped them to 4-5 on the season. During the loss, AFC leading rusher, Arian Foster, had to leave the game with a groin injury. While the severity of the injury will not be known until after his pending MRI according to, the Texans upcoming bye week will allow some extra time for Foster to recover.

Foster left the contest in the third quarter after rushing for 56 yards and adding two catches for 63 yards including a 56 yard touchdown reception. Foster's frustration was evident as he slammed his helmet to the ground before heading to the locker room. Coach Bill O'Brien said he will hopefully get some rest during the bye as he is a key piece of the offense and will be needed down the stretch.

The top overall pick in the 2014 draft, Jadeveon Clowney, missed yet another game on Sunday with an illness and Ian Rapoport reports the team is getting frustrated with him. "What they want is for him to start showing some maturity and learn to play through some of these ailments," Rapoport said. Rapoport also reports this is the first time in his football career he has faced injury problems. Coach O'Brien denied these rumors, saying that injuries just happen in the NFL.

Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph was removed from the game on Sunday in the first quarter after suffering a head injury and was not able to return. reported he sustained a concussion and would be done for the day.
