Texans RB Tate could be done for season

We heard from Texans coach Gary Kubiak last week that rookie RB Ben Tate’s “up and down” performances during training camp were preventing him from helping out the team. Now, Tate might have a much larger issue.

According to veteran scribe John McClain of The Houston Chronicle, the injury that Tate suffered during Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals looks to be a broken ankle, which would put him out for the season. Keep in mind, though, the context of McClain’s words — hardly official — and he doesn’t cite any sources.

Either way, we’ll find out details of the injury soon.

Tate, the Texans’ second-round draft pick, was expected to compete with Arian Foster and Steve Slaton for playing time but was third on the depth chart.
