Texans running back Ben Tate is inactive for Sunday's game against Buffalo with a hamstring injury.
Tate, the Texans' second-leading rusher behind Arian Foster, sat out practice all week. He also sat out Houston's 23-17 win over the New York Jets on Oct. 8 with a right big toe injury.
The other inactives for Houston include cornerbacks Roc Carmichael and Brandon Harris, tackle Andrew Gardner, guards Cody White and Brandon Brooks and nose tackle Terrell McClain. The Texans signed running back Jonathan Grimes this week, after he was waived by the Jets.
For Buffalo, defensive end Mark Anderson (left knee) will miss his third straight game. The other inactives for the Bills include cornerback Terrence McGee, kicker John Potter, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, safety Delano Howell, linebacker Kirk Morrison and right tackle Erik Pears.

If you look at the Houston Texans latest double-digit win, this a 21-9 defeat of the Buffalo Bills, you probably wouldn’t gauge how close the game actually was.
For the majority of the game, no more than five points separated the...

JJ Watt is used to crashing QB parties in the backfield with batted passes and sacks. The Texans are now 7-1 on the season and a lot of it has to do with the play of this monster and the rest of the Texan defense.

The Houston Texans are still perfect against the AFC. They get another chance this weekend to prove they can beat one of the best teams in the NFC, too.
Houston (7-1) remained unbeaten against conference opponents with a 21-9 victory over Buffalo and now moves on to face Chicago (7-1) at Soldier Field on Sunday night. In their only game against an NFC team this season, the Texans...
Chalk this up as another one that I’ve never seen before. It looks eerily similar to one that Titans RB Chris Johnson often does, but its not the same. I guess we’ll just have to applaud Owen Daniels for his creativity and for the success he’s had on the football field this year, totaling 478 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns.Via: @cjzero
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans are still looking for a challenger in the AFC after improving to 7-0 in their conference with a 21-9 win over Buffalo. Houston's only defeat so far came against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in a humiliating nationally televised game.
The Texans (7-1) get another chance this weekend to show a prime-time audience how they stack up...
This is the start of our SOTT Mid Season Report card and we will run through every position group for the Houston Texans. We focus on the offensive line in this post and give our thoughts on the position group.

Duane Brown: He gave up his first sack of the season against the Buffalo Bills but he has been as good you can ask an NFL left tackle...
Houston remains atop the AFC standings with a franchise-best 7-1 start after picking up another win by beating the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Just don't expect the Texans to celebrate the 21-9 win in which Arian Foster ran for 111 yards and a touchdown and Andre Johnson added 118 yards receiving to lead a balanced attack.
''I think we can be a lot better,'' Johnson...
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster should have a huge game against a Bills defense that has yet to stop the run this season.
Fresh off the bye week in what could turn out to be the best season in the history of the team the Houston Texans go up against the Buffalo Bills in the return of the Texans 2006 1st overall pick Mario Williams. Williams who became the highest paid defensive player...
Mario Williams was a fan favorite during his six years in Houston. To say he has fallen out of favor would be an understatement.
Williams, now a member of the Buffalo Bills, was booed in his return to Houston on Sunday. One could say it was salt on the wound, as the Texans rolled to a 21-9 victory, but Williams was hardly concerned about the less-than-welcoming...
HOUSTON - In a homecoming bloated with rancor and disdain, Bills defensive end Mario Williams enjoyed his one moment in the spotlight with a second-quarter sack of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub and a taunting finger wag at the Texans' bench. That was the most memorable impression former Texans player Williams left on Sunday at Reliant Stadium, a development Texans fans surely...

The Headline: Texans corral the Bills for an easy home win
Much had been made about Mario Williams’ return to Houston where he spent the first six years of his career. The split between Williams and the front office was far from amicable by the sounds of it, as they reportedly made no effort to even retain Williams, something which did not...

Texans running back Ben Tate has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.
Tate, who has 178 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 43 carries this season, has not practiced this week due to a sore hamstring.
Justin Forsett signed with Houston during the offseason and is expected to back up Arian Foster.
"I just have a ton of confidence in him,"...
Houston Texans' running back Justin Forsett will be the backup for Arian Foster in Week 9 against Buffalo. Ben Tate is not expected to be active due to a hamstring injury.Fantasy Spin:The Bills' run defense is the worst in the league and Arian Foster will likely have a big day, but even in limited attempts, Forsett might have some low-end value.
The Bills enter Week 9 at 3-4 and facing the Houston Texans, arguably the best team in the AFC. Before we get to this week’s questions here are our updated standings:
Rob Quinn: 8-2
Brandon Hess: 19-11
Ryan Talbot: 23-12
Michael Bundt: 21-14
Mike Straw: 15-10
