Oh I haven't. I remember he was nicked up (hammy issues back then too) in T/C last year. there were folks talking about trading Foster to keep Tate - "no sense paying two starting-caliber RBs" - riiiight...

He was cut again as regular RBs were coming back & Texans pick him up again. He is on roster not practice squad.

It is easy to not catch everything especially with less significant players such as Grimes. You just about have to read every post to keep up. Of course, that means giving up any social life but hey...

What is this "social life" thing you speak of? It sounds vaguely familiar, as if I might have known about it some time ago.

Tate making slow progress

Running back Ben Tate missed the Buffalo game because of a pulled hamstring. Coach Gary Kubiak didnt sound optimistic about Tates return for the Chicago game.

For me to say yes, hes going to be there I think is a little bit of a stretch right now, Kubiak said. Im hoping Wednesday or Thursday hes back on the field doing some stuff, at least with the trainers, and well see. But (hes) not as far along as we had expected.
Something definitely going on behind the scenes. I'm sensing that Tate has copped an attitude, and Kubes has picked up on it. Not good. Not good at all.

As fans, I'm sure we don't really know what's going on. But, one thing is for sure, he has been an injury bust as a player so far. I want him back to last seasons form, but so far this year he's done nothing. If he continues this, then all I can is is two out of three years here he's done nothing. That pretty much looks like a bust to me.

or it's not really a hamstring pull but something else, the way both him and Ed Reed fell on each other was definitely odd. It's not like teams are really transparent on what they consider injuries.
