Texans running back Arian Foster put an interesting spin on the time-honored tradition of backfield stars gifting-up the workhorses who pave the way for them.

Foster, who is fourth in the NFL with 1,313 yards this season, gave each of his offensive linemen a Segway. Foster said the linemen had joked about Foster's use of the personal transporter, so he decided to get one for each of the players on the offensive line depth chart.

“I can’t do anything without them,” Foster said. “If there’s no them, there’s no me. That’s what a team’s all about. It’s just my way of giving back to the big fellas up front.”

The linemen were pretty happy with the gifts.

"I think he's going to have a big day on Sunday," tackle Duane Brown said.
