Default Ben Tate

I understand he suffered a hamstring injury on the play that injured Ed Reed. Does anyone know bad it is? Anything torn?

I'm wondering about this as well. Last night I read something saying he'd be evaluated today but I haven't read anything further or heard anything today.

No real reference to severity per se. Can't really make much of Kubiak's statement.

Quote:
The Texans have an upcoming bye, but this explains why Justin Forsett received six late-game carries. Tate wasn't on the field in garbage time. Kubiak is optimistic Tate's hamstring will heal during the open date. The Texans will emerge from Week 8 to face the Bills' horrendous defense in Week 9. Oct.

Its probably nothing severe, was kubiaks plan to bring out back ups and third stringers to suck any last hope out of the ravens..

No different than we had a couple years ago, keeping a health RB is a difficult task in the NFL these days.

OK, here pretty soon we are gonna have to label Tate as injury prone. He's spent more time injured than actually playing since we drafted him.

Geez, Gary, what the **** dude? Seriously?

Gary's losing his marbles. You've got a salad eating Foster going to the turf on first contact at the LOS and you call out Tate who freaking grinds out the hard yards on a consistent basis?

Screw THAT guy. Tate should go elsewhere and not deal with Grumpy McDoofus who (a) lucked into Foster and (b) waived Grimes and now has to add him back. Gary, you also cut Hartmann in favor if Maynard and had to eat your decision within a week of it.

That's some major bull**** from Kubiak. Tate does t deserve that crap. That pisses me smooth off.

Or causes you to overreact to the bat**** crazy level. The OL has obviously been in transition this season. Saying Tate grinds out the hard yards in comparison to Foster is laughable. Foster is in unless relieved and has faced far more short yardage defense packages. Maybe we should bench both of them since Forsett averages a full yard more.

Now go eat your steak and see if it helps you be an NFL RB more than what Foster has chosen. One of you was leading the NFL in yards and TD's through 7 games. The other was wiping Doritos on the couch.

Amen to that!

I guess Tate isn't putting up with Gary's ways and there might be a rift there.

Well, hell. We all know the potential of Tate, but he's in his 3rd year now and we've gotten one good year so far out of him.

I know I want him on the field, because him and Foster are the NFL's best one-two punch. But we just haven't seen much of him this year, and what we've seen wasn't a lot.

I'm with you Thorn. Tate has been "nicked" or flat out hurt more than he's played in the three years he's been here. When he's been 100% he's been good. But how often has that been. First the toe thing now this hammy.... And Doc's told us how finicky hammy's can be. This hammy thing could drag on all year. Best to sit him for a week or two more and try to let it heal up properly. I'd like to have him back to 100% for late in the season.


....oh and isn't it interesting that the "salad-eating guy" is the durable one compared to the steak-eating guy...?

Don't forget the broken ankle that cost him his rookie year.
