Texans running back Arian Foster and fullback Vonta Leach have been named first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press, one of the highest individual honors in professional football.
Foster, the league rushing champ, and Leach, Foster’s lead blocker, are both first-time All-Pros. The team is selected by a national panel of 50 media members who cover the NFL.
The Texans are one of only two teams, along with the New England Patriots, to have two offensive players on the All-Pro Team. Running backs coach Chick Harris is the only position coach in the league with two players on the team.
Foster, Leach and Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson also were selected to play in the Pro Bowl, although Johnson pulled out of the game because of an ankle injury. Foster and Johnson were named to the 2010 Sporting News All-Pro Team, and Foster was named to the Pro Football Weekly/PFWA All-Pro Team.
