    What's Tate's status? Don't think I heard anything but I never saw him come back.


    Also any update on Ward anywhere?

    Can't put Foster in that situation this year.

    No clue about Tate, but I believe Ward has a high ankle sprain, so we probably won't see him for a few more weeks.

    They said he strained his groin. I thought he just got hit in the nuts but he never came back. Injuries are starting to mount up at the skill positions outside of TE where we are well stocked

    Mods can you change thing to "thin"? Stupid iPod keyboard!!!!!!

    I knew Ward had a high ankle sprain but haven't seen anything on a time table.

    This is from 6 days ago so I don't know if it's accurate since Ward didn't play today.

    Is there any word on their injury status? Is either one expected to play?

    I heard Kubiak say yesterday that one of them will be the #3 back tomorrow, whichever one is healthier.

    I expect Tate to be available even if he does not play much. More of a safety net in case Foster goes down.

    Tate is recovering from a groin.... Ward is recovering from an ankle. Neither is 100% but can play if needed.

    Gary is going to start Foster & Ogbanaya. He will activate either Ward or Tate as a reserve, just in case. He said it will be a game time decision.

    So was Schaub as first. Let's give him some time. Foster and Tate are potentially the best one-two punch at RB in the NFL.

    Broken bones are more of a freak injury and not something you become prone to...oustide of being a 7'6 giant. :(

    Groin strains/muslce strains happen to the best of them (especially this season in which there was no O.T.A.s and they've occured at a increased rate league wide), so right now I'll just chalk it up to bad luck. It is something to keep a eye on though.

    Thanks guys.

    As far as Tate goes, I wouldn't classify him as injury prone yet. I use Ahman Green, Bennie Joppru, and Antwaun Molden as measuring sticks.
