Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is excited about the versatile role he'll play in new coach Bill O'Brien's offense.

Foster told FOX 26 and the Houston Chronicle he's upbeat about the situation.

"So far I really love it," Foster said. "It's very versatile. Coach O'Brien has expressed many times how he wants to use me a lot out of the backfield. That's one of my strengths as a running back. So I'm excited about it."

The three-time Pro Bowl selection went on injured reserve last November, but is healthy now after undergoing back surgery.

"They have a lot of zone schemes, runs, every offense does," Foster said. "The way they want to use me out of the backfield as far as different alignments and matchups they want to have against linebackers and things like that."
