Default 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.

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?

So basically we have two camps of people in here: one that has experienced broken ribs before, and one that says snarky things about him being injured. LOL

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.

Default 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.

Uh...I can say it hurts. I broke a couple on Sept 11 when I totaled my motorcycle in Yellowstone National Park. I can't imagine him playing 2 weeks after breaking 4! It was a month before I wouldn't shed a few tears when I sneezed!

Default Re: Ben Tate 4 broken ribs

The source is Tate himself. I find it hard to believe he had 4 completely broken ribs. Tiny fractures? I dunno, but the team says "sore ribs". Odds are it falls somewhere in the middle. Ha

If forced to choose, I'd side with Tate over the Texans on injury reports, since the Texans are habitual liars on the subject.

If anyone knows when he's injured, it's Ben Tate. If I wanna know about injuries and/or fumbles, I look to Ben Tate.

Default Re: Ben Tate 4 broken ribs

When players have rib injuries/fractures, most of the time the side or the area is not identified or identifiable. In Tate's case, everyone was given a great look on TV as to exactly which side and which area the rib injuries occurred. Flak jacket or not, he may as well be wearing a target on his chest for Ds to be honing in on where to stick it to him. Besides that, it is important to understand that ribs are considered to be part of one big ring originating from the vertebrae. A hit upon anywhere within the circle will lead to movement throughout the circle, including in the area of a fracture. That is why sleeping laying down (no matter what position) still puts stress on the circle as a whole and therefore upon the fracture site(s).

Default Question about the Tate injury play

Why is it that Dontari Poe is not being fined for spearing ( hitting with the crown of his helmet) Tate and causing his injury?
