Foster hurts his Achilles in Houston's loss

MIAMI — Arian Foster went down in a heap without taking a hit.

Foster injured his right Achilles tendon late in the fourth quarter of Houston's 44-26 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he didn't know the severity of the injury but added "it obviously didn't look good." If Foster tore his Achilles, his season is over.

Foster was starting to run a pass pattern off presnap motion when he fell to the ground and grabbed his leg.

The 2010 league rushing champion hasn't played a full season since 2012.

Whose chew? Vikings RB Adrian Peterson played a day after being listed as questionable. He scoffed at a report that indicated his illness stemmed from swallowing chewing tobacco. "I've been dipping for over 10 years, and I'm immune to swallowing dip when I need to," Peterson said. "I think it was something I ate."

More Vikings: WR Stefon Diggs has 19 catches for 324 yards in three games after being inactive for the first three games. Diggs and Anquan Boldin, with the Cardinals in 2003, are the only players since at least 1960 to have that many catches and yards receiving in their first three games, according to STATS.

Browns: QB Josh McCown has lost to the Rams for three straight seasons with three different teams. He was with Chicago in 2013 and Tampa Bay last year.

Colts: WR Phillip Dorsett (left ankle) left in the first half; ESPN reported that the rookie fractured his ankle.

Dolphins: Until Sunday they had been 0-7 against Houston, the only team they had never beaten. Miami also was the first team in at least 75 years to score four offensive touchdowns of at least 50 yards in a half, according to STATS, and broke its record for first-half points with 41. The mark of 35 had stood since 1967.

Falcons: Matt Ryan became the fifth-fastest player to throw for 30,000 yards, doing so in his 117th game. Only Dan Marino (114), Kurt Warner (114), Peyton Manning (115) and Aaron Rodgers (116) were faster.

Jets: Coach Todd Bowles said C Nick Mangold suffered a neck injury and would have X-rays today.

Lions: QB Matt Stafford needed X-rays on his left hand after the team's loss. "I think it's fine," he said.

Patriots: Stephen Gostkowski, who made all three of his field goal tries, has hit 24 in a row, one short of Adam Vinatieri's franchise record.

Saints: Drew Brees has thrown a touchdown pass in 96 of his past 97 games.

Titans: CB Jason McCourty (hamstring) left early in the third quarter . C Andy Gallik was sidelined by a concussion.
