Houston Texans Injuries: Ben Tate Will Play Sunday Night, Arian Foster Gametime Decision

New, comments

After having no running backs available for parts of the Chiefs game, it appears that at least one of the Texans' wounded RBs will be available for Sunday night's AFC clash against the Colts.

If you've got four broken ribs, that means you have a few that aren't broken.  Play on.

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?

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.

So Tate's a go for Sunday night, and Arian Foster's a gametime decision. How does that make you feel about the prospects of Houston's rushing attack against the Colts?
