Texans | Loaded at running back

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate is back in the conversation for a potential No. 2 role behind Arian Foster after a strong preseason showing Saturday, Aug. 20. Tate, who missed all of last year's regular season with a broken leg, missed a lot of training camp because of hamstring injury. He piled up 95 yards rushing and a touchdown on just nine carries against the New Orleans Saints. "I guess practice is overrated," said head coach Gary Kubiak. Tate was encouraged with his game, but said he needs to stay humble and keep working. The Texans appear loaded at tailback with Foster, Tate, Derrick Ward (concussion), Steve Slaton (hamstring) and Chris Ogbonnaya. It remains unlikely the team would keep five tailbacks.
