Of course we all want the man to be healthy and that be the end of it. And we for sure are all monitoring the situation.... But as you said, its too early to hit the panic button. But many people already have, including our local paper.

I'll wait because we must have used a 2nd round pick on the guy for some reason.

I don't remember if it's GP or TPN who keeps preaching "you can't have enough RBs because they don't stay healthy" Color me converted.
What's interesting about last year's hamstring injury, is that it occurred at home one week prior to the beginning of OTA's in mid May. He had essentially self-treated and tried to "train" through it anticipating the OTA's, thus predictably aggravating his problem. (See STUPID above). He was finally allowed to return to play mid June.

I wonder who he had helping him train...
...and if he's still listening to them?

Concerned about Tate? I'm concerned about the RB position, period. A couple of weeks ago, I was convinced the Texans had the strongest RB corps in the league. If the season started on Monday night, the RBs would consist of Derrick Ward, Chris Ogbonnaya, and Javarris Williams. Yikes!

Considering that the hamstring injury to both Foster & Tate aren't severe, I would imagine they both would be out there if it was the regular season. I'm not concerned at all about the RB position.

I can't wait til Tuesday gets here so we have something to type about....
I do look forward to seeing Tate actually play a full game, preseason or regular season.

That's because a lot of times his job is to buck up the player's psyche. He's the one there to remind them to GET OFF THE BEACH.

That would be me. For this offense to do what it needs to do, we have to have quality backs from top to bottom.

I'm not worried about Tate. I think he'll be fine. He's not Joppru.

No. I am concern with all the injuries we got. I really like to see Tate in our regular season games and see how strong our running game would be by rotating Foster, Ward, Tate, and Slaton.

Go Texans!!!

Yeah I know. Hope, everything would be alright when regular season starts.
It is just, we got Wade to handle our D and some help we signed from FA and
I am really looking forward to this season and don't want anything to go wrong with us.

Go Texans!!!
