Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was up to his old "better teammate" antics on Thursday.

Two weeks ago, Foster answered every reporter question with a variation of how he's just trying to be a better teammate. He mostly did it again Thursday.

Below is a transcript of Foster's session with reporters on Thursday:

(on how he feels getting back out on the practice field) “Good.”

(on how he feels about his role in the offense) “I feel good about it.”

(on if he considered retiring after last season) “I’m just out here trying to be the best teammate I can be, man.”

(on if he meant what he said to Hannah Storm about considering retirement) “Every day you just work hard. You’ve got to be the best teammate you can be out here.”

(on how much it helps his team to play against another team) “A lot. It helps a lot.”

(on how practicing against another team helps his team) “It just helps very much with everything.”

(on when he hopes to see game action) “As soon as possible.”

(on what he expects out of himself this year) “Great football and being a good teammate.”

(on what he thought of the DQ Strong campaign) “It’s awesome. Awesome.”

(on how he felt going through practice) “I felt good. I felt really good.”

(on what he took away from practicing against the Falcons) “A lot of hard work. Good work out here.”

(on why he has decided not to be cooperative with media) “I’m just trying to be the best teammate I can be and that’s part of it.”

(on if he ever gave serious thought to retirement) “I’m working hard out here every day, and I’m going to continue to do that.”

(on if he feels that creating a distraction is the same as being a good teammate) “I get paid to play football and that’s what I’m going to continue to do and work hard at it.”

(on if he knew he is required by his contract to talk to media) “That’s why I’m here today.”

(on if he would like to play Saturday) “I’m just going to keep working hard and whatever happens after that is going to transpire.”

(on how far away he is from being 100 percent physically) “Yeah, just got to keep working hard out here and I’m going to continue to do that.”(on how he feels getting back out on the practice field) “Good.”

(on how he feels about his role in the offense) “I feel good about it.”
