Adam Schefter: Ben Tate Unlikely To Play Versus Jets Tonight

Despite Gary Kubiak's optimism on Saturday, Adam Schefter is reporting that Ben Tate will likely miss the Texans' game on Monday Night Football this evening.

Gary Kubiak, after Saturday's practice:

(opening statement) “Practice-wise, (RB Ben) Tate did practice. (RG Antoine) Caldwell did practice. I would rule out (WR) Lestar Jean and (FS Quintin) Demps as of today, but Caldwell is definitely ready to go. I’ll go back and look at Tate. I expect him to go but I am very comfortable with (RB) 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.”

Things have changes since then if you believe what Adam Schefter is reporting this afternoon. Namely:

Houston Texans running back Ben Tate, a limited participant in last weeks practices due to a toe injury, is unlikely to play Monday night against the New York Jets, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Many Texans fans have expressed concern about the amount of touches Arian Foster is getting. Even though Justin Forsett is a capable backup, I wouldn't look for a significant decrease in Arian's carries this evening.
