With Arian Foster (groin) looking like a game-day decision, according to the Houston Chronicle, Blue has a chance to be a significant contributor in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Blue will likely share playing time if Arian Foster (groin) is available for Sunday's game against the Bengals, the Houston Chronicle reports. Foster was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice after missing last week's game.

Blue had a franchise-record 36 carries for a career-high 156 yards in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Blue got the start in place of Arian Foster, who is still dealing with a groin injury that he was unable to recover from over the Week 10 bye. The Texans ran the ball 54 times, with backup Jonathan Grimes rushing 13 times for 54 yards. Blue didn't do anything in the passing game, but it didn't really matter with that many carries. If Foster has to miss any additional time, Blue will get another start in Week 12 against the Bengals, who are allowing the second-most rushing yards per game this season.
Blue's teammate, Arian Foster, has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Drew Dougherty of houstontexans.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Foster, who was previously listed as questionable, will miss at least one game with the groin injury. That leaves Blue as the likely leader of the Houston backfield, with Jonathan Grimes also in line to get some work. When Foster previously missed a game back in Week 3, Blue had 13 carries and one reception, compared to just one carry and one reception for Grimes. Sunday's matchup is a pretty good one, as the Cleveland run defense has struggled for much of the season. Even with Foster sidelined, Houston may make the running game a priority in the first start of Ryan Mallett's career.
Per NFL.com, Blue's teammate, Arian Foster, looks like a long shot to play Sunday against the Browns.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Although Blue showed promise as a runner in his four seasons at LSU, he ended up only starting seven games in his college career, never carried the ball more than 71 times in a season, and had his junior year cut short by a knee injury. Still, the Texans saw enough to select the well-built rusher in the sixth round of this year's draft, and he'll battle with Jonathan Grimes in training camp for the right to serve as the No. 2 behind to Arian Foster.
