Another failed pick
Texans waive running back D'Onta Foreman
The Texans can add another early round bust to their checkered draft record.
On Sunday, the team waived D'Onta Foreman, who was presumed to be the backup running back. The former UT star was a third-round pick in 2017. He showed flashes that year before an Achilles injury. He missed most of last season, but had come into camp ready to solidify the backup job.
However, according to John McClain, Foreman's work ethic was not up to snuff.
Foreman was drafted during the Rick Smith regime, which was notorious for poor third round picks. Add Foreman to the list.
Foreman has talent and can easily help a team if he is motivated. For the Texans, it further weakens a group that was a huge question mark to begin with. Lamar Miller remains entrenched as the starter, but everything behind him is a major question mark. As much as the Texans run the football, it can't be understated what a concern this has become. Foreman at least had potential. Now with that chip gone, the Texans will have to find something behind Miller. We just know it won't be Foreman.
