WESTFIELD, Ind. Maybe DOnta Foreman just needs a fresh start.The Houston Texans told him as much Sunday, and the Indianapolis Colts figure it cant hurt to take a look.Two days after the former college star was cut by the Texans, Foreman was back on the field in suburban Indianapolis eager to prove the doubters wrong. Its a humbling experience to be here, being cut by your hometown team, Foreman said Tuesday after being claimed off waivers. Im just, Im here to work.Apparently, that was one of the criticisms in Houston.Media reports suggested Texans coaches had grown weary of Foremans work habits, his pass protection and his punctuality. He also fumbled during his final practice with Houston on Saturday.When asked what went wrong in Houston, Foreman declined to push back against those suggestions and instead told reporters he didnt want to say the wrong thing.To make the Colts roster, Foreman must show those perceptions are fiction. Indy already has an established starter in Marlon Mack, two promising second-year backs in Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams, who finished last season with the Colts and like Foreman was a prep star in Texas. They also have veteran Spencer Ware on the physically unable to perform list.And the Colts spent most of last season with only three running backs active on game day .Still, they decided to give the 23-year-old a shot.Well bring him in here and take a look, coach Frank Reich said. Hes like everybody else, were all day to day. Youve got to prove it every day, so I look forward to getting him in here and seeing what hes all about Frankie Williams Jersey. It will be a good opportunity for him.Reich said Foreman would only play in Thursdays preseason opener at Buffalo in the right situation.But Foreman does have an intriguing resume and plenty of potential.The Houston Texans thought highly enough of the 2016 Doak Walker Award winner , which goes to the top running back in college football, to make him a third-round draft pick in 2017.After a solid start to his rookie season, Foreman tore the Achilles tendon in his left leg in mid-November. He never really rebounded.Foreman started last season on the physically unable to perform list, wasnt activated until early December and carried seven times for minus-1 yard in his only game. This summer, coach Bill OBrien appeared to give Foreman a clean slate at the start of training camp, but his tone changed dramatically as camp continued.On Sunday, OBrien delivered the news to the former University of Texas star before the Texans left for joint practices with Green Bay.I didnt expect to be released from Houston at all, like everything has happened so fast, Foreman said. I believe everything happens for a reason and Im here to make the most of my opportunity.Foreman also has had some struggles off the field.His infant son, DOnta Jr., died from an intestinal infection just seven weeks after he was born prematurely in the fall of 2016. Since then, he has welcomed a daughter, Nike, become active in the March of Dimes and started a charitable foundation urging fathers to become more involved in their childrens lives.University of Texas police also arrested Foreman in July 2017 for unlawful carrying of a weapon and marijuana possession, both misdemeanors. He eventually pleaded no contest on a single misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct for making unreasonable noise , which was later dismissed.Now, in a new home, Foreman thinks he can be a perfect fit.Ive never played outside of Texas, never played on a team more than three hours away from my hometown, he said. So me being away is definitely different, definitely a different vibe from Houston, but its probably one of the best things thats happened to me. Ive had a lot of family members around, a lot of friends around, me just being able to get away and focus mainly on football, I think this is definitely a good spot for me.
