Texans running back Ben Tate took part in his first practice of the week Saturday, going through limited practice. He has been affected by a toe injury lately, but while he wouldn't say for sure, head coach Gary Kubiak did say that he expects Tate to play Monday night against the Jets.
"I'll go back and look at Tate," Kubiak said. "I expect him to go, but I am very comfortable with Justin (Forsett) and the practices he's had if he's our two in the game. He will do a good job for us. We'll see."
Tate is officially listed as questionable.
The Texans will wait for Tate, but fantasy owners shouldn't. He's had just one good game this season, and he's always a risky flex whenever Arian Foster is healthy. Now he's even riskier because of his own health issues. Put Tate on your bench. Forsett isn't worth your time either, even against the hapless Jets.
