Houston running back Arian Foster misses practice Thursday with groin injury


HOUSTON — Houston running back Arian Foster missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday with a groin injury.

Foster, who is second in the NFL with 822 yards rushing, was injured Nov. 2 against the Eagles before Houston's bye week.

Coach Bill O'Brien isn't sure if Foster will be able to play Sunday at Cleveland and says: "That's definitely going to be a game-time decision."

Linebackers Brian Cushing and Jadeveon Clowney were both limited in practice on Thursday with knee injuries, but are expected to play this weekend. Cushing has missed the past two games and Clowney, who was the top overall pick in this year's draft, has sat out seven of the first nine games.
