Carolina is hoping Foreman can provide a bigger, more physical complement to Christian McCaffrey and Chuba Hubbard in the backfield in 2022, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman was brought aboard this offseason after filling in admirably for the injured Derrick Henry with the Titans in 2021. In nine games, he rushed 133 times for 566 yards (4.3 per carry) and three touchdowns, and he caught nine of 11 targets for 123 more yards. Although Hubbard proved to be a serviceable replacement while McCaffrey missed 10 games last season, he doesn't pack the punch that the 6-foot-1, 236-pound Foreman does. When healthy, McCaffrey should be the focus of Carolina's offense, but given his different skill set, Foreman could carve out a decent-sized complementary role and prove useful in short-yardage situations.

Foreman agreed to terms on a contract with the Panthers on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman was a midseason signing of the Titans last fall as the team looked to fill the void left behind by Derrick Henry, who was lost for the rest of the regular season in Week 8 due to a broken bone in his foot. Foreman seized the opportunity, averaging 4.6 yards on his 137 carries while hauling in nine of 11 targets for 123 yards and scoring three touchdowns in 10 games (including Tennessee's divisional-round loss to the Bengals). With the Panthers, he'll clearly be behind Christian McCaffrey on the depth chart and likely competing with Chuba Hubbard for any backfield touches that remain.

Foreman rushed the ball four times for 66 yards in Saturday's 19-16 divisional-round loss to the Bengals.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman was relegated to backup duties due to the return of Derrick Henry (foot). Though that limited his opportunities, he was effective when called upon by ripping off gains of 45, 10 and nine yards. Tennessee's season ended in disappointing fashion, but it was very successful for Foreman from a personal perspective. He earned a career-high 133 carries to gain 566 yards and three touchdowns, which came primarily when he served as the team's lead back while Henry was sidelined. Foreman will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent and should finally be able to land a deal and earn a fairly substantial role in a backfield.

Foreman will likely play a reduced role in Saturday's divisional round against the Bengals, as Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports that the Titans have activated Derrick Henry (foot) from injured reserve.
EDGE Analysis
Even if Henry's not ready to return to his customary workhorse role right away, he'll likely get the majority of rushing attempts in Tennessee's backfield. Henry should usurp Foreman's early-down role, while Dontrell Hilliard's workload on passing downs will likely remain intact. After topping 20 rushing attempts in three of the past four games, Foreman will be fighting an uphill battle to even reach half that total against Cincinnati.

Foreman rushed the ball 21 times for 69 yards in Sunday's 28-25 win over Houston. He added one reception for 15 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman dominated work out of the backfield, out-touching Dontrell Hilliard 21-10. Even so, his production left plenty to be desired, as he averaged only 3.3 yards per carry while failing to find the end zone. His run as the Titans' lead back is also likely to be over as Derrick Henry (foot) has been activated from injured reserve with the expectation that he'll be able to return to the field for the team's postseason run.

Foreman rushed the ball 26 times for 132 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Dolphins.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman continued to handle the lead-back role for Tennessee, and he bounced back in a big way from a disappointing Week 16 performance. He benefited from a positive game script from a volume perspective to log a career-high 26 carries. Foreman also made the most of his opportunity by ripping off big gains of 35 and 14 yards in addition to notching a 21-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. Though the Titans use three backs, Foreman has managed to top 100 rushing yards in three of his last five games heading into a Week 18 matchup against the Texans.

Foreman recorded nine carries for 17 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 20-17 win over San Francisco.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman narrowly led the Titans' backfield by accounting for nine of the team's 24 rushing attempts. However, he was out-gained by both Jeremy McNichols and Dontrell Hilliard, with Foreman's longest rush of the day going for only eight yards. Adding to the disappointing effort was the fact that Foreman did not earn a target after posting multiple receptions in each of his last two contests. Even given all those negatives, Foreman managed to salvage his performance on a three-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter. While the disappointing effort casts some doubt on Foreman's ability to produce in a Week 17 matchup against Miami, he is still likely to remain the lead back in Tennessee.

Foreman (ankle) practiced in full Tuesday, John Glennon of SI.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman opened Week 16 prep with a limited showing at Monday's walkthrough, so bumping up to all activity one day later more or less clears him for Thursday's game against the 49ers. Over the last six contests, Foreman racked up 85 touches while Dontrell Hilliard and Jeremy McNichols combined for 79 touches during that span.

Foreman was limited by an ankle injury at Monday's walkthrough, John Glennon of SI.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman has built himself up to have the upper hand in the Titans backfield in the wake of Derrick Henry hitting injured reserve due to a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Since joining the team ahead of a Week 9 matchup with the Rams, Foreman has 85 touches for 456 yards and one rushing TD in six games. Meanwhile, Dontrell Hilliard and Jeremy McNichols have combined for 79 touches during that span. The team may just be managing Foreman's health with a Thursday game versus the Cardinals on the docket. Still, his status should be monitored to ensure he's available Week 15.

Foreman recorded 22 rushes for 108 yards in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Pittsburgh. He added two receptions for 27 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Foreman dominated work out of Tennessee's backfield with Dontrell Hilliard seeing only nine rushes and Jeremy McNichols six. Foreman took advantage of the opportunity, racking up chunk gains of 20 and 12 yards to top 100 rushing yards for the second time in his last three games. While Hillard served as the primary pass catcher out of the backfield, Foreman has also chipped in multiple receptions for the second consecutive contest. The only thing missing from Foreman's effort was a trip to the end zone, though he has also established himself as the team's goal-line back.
