HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Texans running back Arian Foster says he has not spoken to his doctors about "any surgery" after a report that he was likely to undergo a heart procedure in about a month.
The NFL Network reported Thursday that Foster was considering an ablation procedure to address a heart issue he's had since he was 12.
According to the Mayo Clinic's official Web site, such a procedure involves the use of a catheter to correct structural problems that can lead to an abnormal heartbeat.
Foster said in a statement released Friday he has "no complications with my blood pumper." Foster left in the third quarter of the Texans' 23-6 loss to Minnesota on Dec. 23 with an irregular heartbeat.
