Texans | Justin Forsett to play larger role in Week 9

Houston Texans RB Justin Forsett will serve as the team's No. 2 running back in Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills because RB Ben Tate (hamstring) has been ruled out of the game. RB Jonathan Grimes, who was recently re-signed, will serve as the team's third back on the depth chart.

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Forsett will rotate into the game to spell starting RB Arian Foster the same way Tate normally does. Forsett has averaged 5.2 yards per carry this year. Kubiak went on to say he has a ton of confidence in Forsett. "He'll basically take Ben's spot," Kubiak noted.
