During Week 11,1 D’Onta Foreman, the Texans promising rookie running back, tore his Achilles tendon. Many were expecting Foreman to greatly cut into Lamar Miller’s workload in 2018, possibly even supplanting him as the lead running back in the Houston backfield. The question then arises: how will this injury affect these expectations? It must be understood that an Achilles tendon rupture is a devastating injury for a professional athlete. The Achilles tendon transmits all of the force from the calf muscles/gastrocnemius-soleus unit to the foot. You may be interested to know that these muscles are, pound for pound, the strongest muscles in the human body. The Achilles tendon is, therefore, a critical structure for running, jumping, cutting, and athletic performance.
