After leading the NFL in almost every rushing category, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has been named All-Pro running back along with his lead blocker, fullback Vonta Leach. 

The Associated Press announced the news on Monday. Both Foster and Leach receive the honor for the first time. 

The 24-year-old Foster had a career season, gaining over 1,600 yards and 16 TDs rushing.

Leach was responsible for creating huge holes and acting as a lead blocker for Foster. He had the best season of his career, dominating on virtually every play this season. 

Foster and Leach join Tom Brady and Jamaal Charles in the backfield. 

Andre Johnson did not make the squad because he missed three games with an ankle injury. He was named to the All-Pro team in 2008 and 2009. 

Atlanta's Roddy White and the Colts' Reggie Wayne took the wide receiver honors. They were the only receivers to have 100 receptions this season.
