It appears that the toe injury that kept Texans running back Ben Tate out of Monday night’s win against the Jets has recovered enough for him to play Sunday night against the Packers, per Nick Scurfield.
RB Ben Tate (toe) had a “good practice” today, Kubiak said. All indications are he’ll be ready for Sunday #Texans

After limited participation in Wednesday’s practice, it’s obviously a positive indication that he was able to put in a “good practice.” Barring any sort of setback, Tate shouldn’t expect to see very many carries Sunday, as starter Arian Foster has a firm grip on the team’s workload.
