Arian Foster’s first game of the season hasn’t started off well.
Foster, returning from a groin injury for his first game of the year, was carrying the ball for the Texans when he ran into Texans right tackle Derek Newton, who inadvertently stripped Foster of the ball, causing a fumble.
As Foster scrambled to recover it, Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant came flying in, picked it up, and returned it for a touchdown.
Clearly, Foster was held back by a Falcons player and may have recovered it, but this is a pretty humorous gaffe:
This isn’t quite on the level of the Butt Fumble, but it’s pretty bad, making the score 21-0. The Texans’ offense has been having enough problems without their offensive line turning against them.
