Texans RB Arian Foster considering heart procedure

Texans running back Arian Foster says he’s considering [1] undergoing a heart procedure to address the condition that took him out of Houston’s Dec. 23 game.

Foster left that game, which the Texans lost 23-6 to Minnesota, with an irregular heartbeat, and Texans coach Gary Kubiak [2] said after the game that Foster had experienced the same problem in a practice.

Foster told the NFL Network’s Alex Flanagan on Thursday that he’ll “likely undergo” a heart ablation in a month or so. That process involves the use of a catheter to correct structural problems of the kind that can lead to an abnormal heartbeat.
