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.
