Earlier today, Arian Foster was activated off the PUP list. Now Foster is saying he will be ready for week 1:

“I’m not a huge fan of preseason,” Foster said. “I feel like I’ll be ready for Sept. 9 without (it). I’ve just got to get myself acclimated. I know my body and I knew it wasn’t a huge issue. I had to give it time.” Foster has been battling calf and back injuries since May, but he was finally activated off active/PUP Wednesday. Coach Gary Kubiak doesn’t think it’s a “must” for his bell-cow back to be ready for the opener, but he’s expressed continuous optimism.

I’m not convinced that he will be able to handle his normal workload in week 1 but maybe he will actually be ready. Either way, the Texans should probably take it easy with him since they have Super Bowl aspirations.
