Houston Texans running back Arian Foster says he doesn't want his children to play football, per the Houston Chronicle.

The reason being that Foster doesn't want them to go through the physical pain he has experienced from playing football.

“I love the game and everything, but this hurts, man,” Foster said. “It’s a lot of work, man. Let Daddy put in the work so you can go study art or something.”

Foster was just activated off the physically unable to perform list this week after first having an off-season calf injury and later a back issue while he was still on PUP. Foster is not expected to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night.
