Houston Texans' fans were understandably concerned when star running back Arian Foster left early during the team's loss to the Minnesota Vikings with an irregular heartbeat. One young fan named Macie was so worried she made a sign for her favorite player, hoping that his heart felt better.

Five years ago, Macie's sign would have made the family's refrigerator or maybe could have been mailed to the Texans' training facility. But thanks to Twitter, Foster got to see Macie's concern for him right away. Macie's father tweeted the picture to Foster, who quickly responded to his young fan.

And there is more good news for Macie. According to the Houston Chronicle, Foster was cleared by a cardiologist, and he returned to practice on Wednesday as the Texans prepare to play the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. With a win, the Texans will clinch the no. 1 seed in the AFC, which should make Macie very happy.
