Arian Foster will be donning his new colors for the first time this weekend.
Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said Foster will make his ‘Phins debut Friday night in Miami’s second preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.
“Right now I’m pretty sure he’s going to go,” Gase said, according to ESPN’s James Walker. “So unless I change my mind for some reason, I want to see him get in there with that first group and get him a feel for how they operate.”
Foster is coming off of a torn right Achilles tendon injury sustained last October during his final season with the Houston Texans. While Foster might be good to go on Friday, sustaining good health has been his kryptonite. He has played in all 16 games in just two seasons and the last time he did so was in 2012, when he rushed for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns.
When Foster is healthy, he’s as dynamic of a runner as they come. The operative word, however, is “when,” because healthy isn’t a word often used to describe the 29-year-old tailback.
