HOUSTON (AP) – Arian Foster has been released by the Houston Texans.

The four-time Pro Bowler was released on Thursday after a season where he missed 12 games with groin and Achilles tendon injuries.

The 29-year old was an undrafted free agent who spent time on the practice squad before rising to lead the NFL in rushing with 1,616 yards in 2010.

Foster ran for 1,246 yards in 2014 for the fourth 1,000-yard rushing season of his career.
