“I think if we asked Ben to do something today, he would’ve done it,” Kubiak said, via HoustonTexans.com. “We are going to get Justin (Forsett) ready to go … We’ll see where Ben is at on Saturday.”
Tate is dealing with a toe injury, but we should have a really good idea of whether or not he’ll be available for Monday’s game, either Saturday or leading up to kickoff on Sunday.

When dealing with a toe injury there is always a concern that it could be turf toe, so it’s understandable why the Texans are taking all the necessary precautions here. The Texans will play Monday night against the Jets, so that’ll give Tate’s toe an extra day to get healthy. As of now, Tate is considered a game-time decision.
