Ben Tate Has Four Broken Ribs


Houston Texans running back Ben Tate has four broken ribs suffered Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. The injury occurred in the second quarter after a big hit directly on the ribs of Tate on a carry. This hampered the team after Arian Foster left the game early with a hamstring injury on the team’s opening drive. Add that with Tate’s injury left the Texans with no healthy runningbacks for the game except fullback Greg Jones.

The third runningback Cierre Wood was sent home prior to the game for violating team rules which led to him being waived by the Texans on Monday.

The Texans will be in the market for an extra runningback during their bye week to take the place of the departed Wood.
