Texans RB Arian Foster underwent minor arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, according to PFW correspondent and Houston Chronicle writer John McClain.

Foster, the NFL's leading rusher in 2010 with 1,616 yards, sustained cartilage damage to the knee in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 30. He thought that rest would heal the injury, but had to undergo the surgery instead. The surgery allows for three weeks of recovery time.

The way we see it

This sounds like it was a relatively minor surgery and shouldn't have any effect on Foster's health for the 2011 season.
