Texans running backs Arian Foster has landed on the injury report with a hamstring injury. Running back Ben Tate is also on there because of a toe injury. But no one is worried about Foster. He practiced fully Thursday and will handle his usual workload Monday against the Jets.
Tate is a different story. He didn't practice Thursday and won't practice Friday. The Texans are trying to let his injured toe rest up for Monday's matchup. Tate underwent X-rays this week, but it has not been confirmed if he is dealing with turf toe.
Tate looks to be a game-time decision for Monday. But considering that Foster is fine, and that Tate hasn't done much of anything in the past two games, put him on your bench this weekend. Foster should romp over the demoralized Jets. We'll let you know if any other news materializes regarding Tate's damaged digit. Justin Forsett is set to fill his role.
