Arian Foster Bows to Show Respect

Arian Foster is mystifying even his teammates with his newly-adopted bowing-in-the-end zone act.

"I don't know if it's from the Chinese or the Egyptians," Texans fullback Vonta Leach said.

Actually, it's derived from Hindu or Indian and Nepal origins. It's something the second-year undrafted running back out of Tennessee, relegated to the practice squad most of last year, came up with in the off-season.

"I feel like every running back should have their own little stamp on the game," said Foster, whose troubled adolescent days shifted from Albuquerque to San Diego before an up-and-down college career at Tennessee.
