Tate was healthy in 2011 (15 games) and had essentially the same yardage as Richardson had last year on about 90 fewer carries.
And in a strange turn, while Tate is older, because of the combination of his #2 RB status, and his injuries, Tate actually has 40 fewer NFL carries, and 69 fewer touches.
