    Per rotoworld Tate is out of OTA with an injury. Didnt see it posted else where

    "Rookie Ben Tate is sitting out Texans OTAs with a hamstring injury.
    It sounds like Tate is merely day to day, but Gary Kubiak indicated that he's no lock to rejoin workouts soon. "He's going to miss a little time," the head coach predicted. "He had a problem with his hamstring Friday back home. ... We'll evaluate him for a couple of days and go from there." Tate could be using this time to gain ground on Arian Foster and Steve Slaton."

    the quote "He's going to miss a little time" is making me nervous. Hopefully kubes only means OTAs not camp or pre/reg season

    I think hamstring injuries in May are of little concern. No use risking a tear.

    My line of thinking on Tate as well. Apparently there's something in the water here that keeps our RB's injured. Hopefully he works through OTA's at some point, but TC is the big prize in the offseason and I'm sure he will be taking reps by then.

    As I posted in the OTA thread, this does not seem to be the first time he's had hamstring problems. I remembering him have a similar problem in college sometime in the last year or two.

    I'm not going to be concerned about this at this time. I'm content to see what develops.

    Does our S&C program incorporate stretching into their routine? It seems like the Texans consistantly have hammy problems.

    Thats it... I am selling my Ben Tate jersey!

    I'm hoping this was due to being inactive for awhile, and it's just some rust.

    I thought I had heard he was (maybe?) doing some workouts with MJD, though. He might have had some downtime after that, came to OTA, and tweaked it.

    It could also be sore, and the staff doesn't want to risk making it worse. It's a long way to regular season kickoff.

    Or...maybe we're getting an early start on regular season injury reports that are used to trick opponents:

    Kubiak: "Will Tate play? He's day-to-day, so we'll see how he looks on game day."

    LOL. You know how crafty Kubiak is. He's got all sorts of tricks up his sleeve when it comes to out-foxing his opponents. :sarcasm:

    He tweaked it last week working out at home. Kubiak's just taking it slow so he doesn't risk further injury on the field. I imagine he'll be working out full-speed with the team by next week at the latest.

    I watched the OTA Day 1 video, and Tate was out there on the field. Don't know if he just stood around and listened in and didn't participate in drills, though. He'll be fine. We're in the middle of May. He has a LONG time to heal a hamstring.

    Keep him off the field and in the film room then. Hamstring injuries can end up being pretty bad if a player ends up coming back to early and not letting it heal completely. They can linger on for weeks.
