Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has been frustrated with running back Ben Tate as he hasn’t been able to stay healthy this season.
“My biggest level of concern with Tate is just keeping him on the field,” Kubiak said, per Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle. “It seems like it’s been one thing after another. If it’s not the toe, the hamstring. This has been going on for a few years. We need him.”
Tate has been bothered all season long by toe and hamstring injuries, which has limited him to just 43 carries in just six games. It’s looking more and more likely that Tate will be out for this Sunday’s game as the the Texans host the Bills. Justin Forsett would replace Tate as Arian Foster‘s backup.
