AROUND THE WEB:

— Dolphins running back Arian Foster announced his immediate retirement Monday after eight years in the NFL.

Foster, 30, only played four games this season due to hamstring issues. His history of injuries likely is a factor in his decision to retire midseason.

Digital media company UNINTERRUPTED tweeted this message from Foster on Monday night:

The sudden announcement was a shock for some.

“It was pretty surprising,” said Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, a longtime teammate of Foster’s. “Obviously, I think the world of him as a football player. It’s not easy to see guys step away from the sport.”

Texans tackle Duane Brown also didn’t see this coming.

“That’s a good friend of mine. Wow, I didn’t know that,” Brown said. “Hat’s off to him, salute to him. He had a heck of a career, and I’m honored to be able to share the field with him and be able to contribute to some of his success and have him contribute to some of my success.”

Foster played for the University of Tennessee and was signed by the Texans in 2009 as an undrafted free agent.

— Jets coach Todd Bowles responded on Monday to Ryan Fitzpatrick’s postgame comments on Sunday. 

After Fitzpatrick said the team ownership and coaching staff has stopped believing in him, Bowles said it doesn’t bother him at all.

“If pissed off is going to stop the turnovers, I’m more than happy to have him play pissed off,” Bowles said.

Fitzpatrick replaced starting quarterback Geno Smith on Sunday after Smith reportedly tore his ACL and had to leave the game.

Fitzpatrick was benched after Week 6’s 28-3 loss to the Cardinals in favor of Smith.

— Noah Syndergaard can add sitcom star to his impressive resume.

The Mets pitcher will appear in Kevin Nealon’s CBS show “Kevin Can Wait” next Monday, reportedly playing the role of Thor.

James and his character in the show are both Mets fans. Syndergaard announced his cameo in this tweet:

 

BIRTHDAY OF THE DAY: Happy 45th, Pedro Martinez!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “There are certain parts of the year where things are going better than they did in another part.

THIS DAY IN SPORTS HISTORY: The Red Sox beat the Rockies, 2-1, in Game 2 of the 2007 World Series. Curt Schilling struck out four and got the win in his final appearance in the majors.
