When Tennessee Titans running back D’Onta Foreman takes the field against the Houston Texans on Sunday, it’ll be the first time he faces off with the team that drafted him in 2017.
A former third-round pick of the Texans, Foreman spent three years with the team but was released in 2019 as he attempted to make his way back from a torn Achilles.
Since then, Foreman has bounced around with a few different teams but now finds himself with a golden opportunity to get his career back on track as the Titans’ lead back with Derrick Henry on the shelf.
When asked if he was holding a grudge against his old mates, Foreman said that was not the case and he’s looking at this game just like any other.
“Maybe for some people, but honestly a lot of people I was there with aren’t even there anymore,” Foreman explained. “Obviously I want to play well, definitely, but it’s just another game, honestly. Go out there and just play my game and do what I can do to help the team.
In two games since Henry’s injury, the Titans’ ground game as a whole has struggled. However, Foreman has looked like the best of the bunch, which should warrant lead-back duties in Week 11.
And Foreman will have a great chance to shine, as his former team ranks 31st against the run this season, and the Titans will be short one back, with Jeremy McNichols having been ruled out.
