Houston running back Arian Foster was forced to leave the Texans’ Week 16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings due to an irregular heartbeat that surfaced during the game.

It was considered a minor issue at the time and didn’t keep Foster from playing in any of the Texans’ remaining games this season. However, it’s an issue Foster appears to be looking into correcting.

According to Alex Flanagan of the NFL Network, Foster is likely to undergo a procedure on his heart in about a month to correct the issue. Foster has apparently experienced issues with his heart dating back to when he was 12 years old but the episode against the Vikings was the first time he’d experienced it in a game.

Even though the episodes of irregular heartbeat themselves may be considered minor, heart surgery isn’t. Hopefully, Foster’s surgery goes by the book and he’s back and ready to go for the start of next season.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

He's likely going to have an ablation.  This can be done surgically, but there is also a nonsurgical way of doing it, too.  It would involve accessing his vascular system either through his groin or neck, and threading a catheter to his heart. They would then use that catheter to interrupt the electrical pathway that is causing the irregular rhythm.  Unless they've already tried this, and it failed, I would imagine this would be the first option.  Any procedure with the heart is concerning and carries risks for complications, but I doubt he'll be having open heart surgery for this issue.  Either way, get well soon.

It's good he's trying to be proactive about it, what are the chances he resumes playing next season after just having heart surgery. Seems like something he should really take it easy with honestly.

If he has the nonsurgical ablation, he should be back to full strength within a couple of weeks (more like days, but he'll probably have activity restrictions that will keep him out of the gym for a couple of weeks).  Even if he opts for surgical ablation, there are varying degrees of severity and he would be back to normal well before training camp opens barring complications.
