Ben Tate’s Injured Toe Could Keep Him Out Of Week 5

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak expressed some optimism regarding Ben Tate status for Monday night’s game against the New York Jets.

“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.

Texans running back Ben Tate missed practice Thursday and won’t practice until Saturday to give his injured toe some rest, per Nick Scurfield.

 

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.
