Gary Kubiak briefly met with the media today and updated everyone on the status of the Texans' top two running backs. Ben Tate, you'll recall, suffered four (4!) broken ribs in the loss to the Chiefs a little less than two weeks ago. Apparently, that won't keep him off the field at Reliant Stadium for Sunday Night Football. As for Arian Foster?
Gary Kubiak says everybody practiced. Ben Tate will play. Arian Foster is a "gametime decision." #Texans— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) November 1, 2013
CSN Houston's Dave Zangaro has more about Tate:
Tate will wear some kind of protective gear over his ribs on Sunday but said the key to playing through that type of injury is blocking it out of his mind. He said once the game gets going, he won’t be thinking about it.
