D’Onta Foreman reports to Texans rookie camp ‘out of shape’


  • In his final year at Texas, his heavy weight did not seem to affect his workload. He carried the ball 323 times, third-most of FBS running backs. He played 709 snaps, 11th-most of FBS running backs.
  • At Texas, he averaged 3.54 yards after contact per carry, eighth-best in the FBS among running backs with at least 200 carries. His 64 tackles avoided rushing versus Power-5 opponents were second-most in the country.
  • Foreman’s weight did not appear to affect his breakaway ability in 2016, either, as he recorded 29 runs of at least 15 yards versus Power-5 opponents, the most of any running back.foreman

      Quote from the source linked: “Texans coach Bill O’Brien noted that Foreman and other rookies have some work to do to get into ideal football shape. Foreman worked on the side during practice Saturday, riding a stationary exercise bike.”

    The claim was Out of Shape. That is not the same thing as not being in ideal football shape. It is a misleading headline #fakenews. I stand by my observation that the evidence does not support the claim.
