Foster suffered a hamstring injury during Friday's practice, but the severity of the injury was not disclosed, and Foster himself doesn't seem too worried about it. Now, I'm probably going to keep him this season as a 5th round pick, but I've seen hamstring injuries linger on running backs throughout the season. This could be nothing, and I could be overreacting, but I could still offer him up for a trade with Chris Johnson straight up. This would mean I'd give up a potential #1 RB at great value (5th round) for a potential #1 RB with normal value (1st). We declare our keepers next Saturday I believe, so I have a week, but I would have to offer trades and have them processed before then. Should I wait it out and hope it's nothing at all, or should I get the best trade I can get before people realize he's hurt?
I myself am sticking with Foster and releasing McCoy. You still have a week. They should release some news by then, but that won't help with trading. I have confidence he will play. He did play hurt last year. Roll with Foster

We keep three, so I'm keeping Foster AND McCoy right now, ha. But yea, I'm leaning towards keeping him and just hoping for the best. I guess he was tearing it up in practice, so maybe they rest him for a week or so, and he comes back at 100%.

Agree with this. Don't overreact. Be patient, wait for info to emerge, and make your choices based on the best info available. You can't just cut and run with a guy of Foster's potential. If you get him as a 5th, that's a steal. Just stay pat and watch him rake for you.
