Ben Tate 4 broken ribs
 
John McClain @McClain_on_NFL

RB Ben Tate just told AP he has 4 broken ribs but expects to play after bye. Foster and Tate are injured and they need another RB.

Holy c rap, I've personally never had them but I hear they hurt like hell, can't imagine playing knowing your opponent is gonna pound you all day in that area. I see more fumbles in his future.

So Foster hurt, Tate hurt and Wood cut. Options?

Ray Graham from the PS. Deji Karim, Jonathan Grimes.

Those seem like the obvious ones.

Cedric Benson and Beanie Wells are also available.

I had ribs for lunch yesterday. Pretty good.

Soooooooooo, how about we just lose out and get high draft picks, eh? Do you think we could put in Schaub to throw some pick 6's against the Jags just to ensure we don't accidentally win?

The hits just keep on coming.

Re: Ben Tate 4 broken ribs
 
Wait there's another thread that says he has four broken ribs. So does he have four broken ribs or eight total?









Just kidding the wheels are falling off this season and I can only laugh to keep from crying.

Are you sure? He's not listed on their roster.

I'd activate graham and trade a conditional 7th for grimes.

CloakNNNdagger 10-21-2013 05:37 PM

Re: Tate has 4 broken ribs...
 
The Raiders tried him out, but evidently he did not get signed.

CloakNNNdagger 10-21-2013 05:38 PM

Re: Tate has 4 broken ribs...
 
I wouldn't be relying on a RB with 4 broken ribs to perform in 2 weeks any better than he did yesterday.

Rey 10-21-2013 06:05 PM

Re: Tate has 4 broken ribs...
 
Also, grimes was pretty good on special teams when he was here.

Aren't we talking about months here? I'd think its something that dogs him. The rest of the season.
