Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (toe) missed practice Thursday and his Week 5 status is up in the air, reports Nick Scurfield. Tate will also miss Friday's practice as coach Gary Kubiak stated that he will be held out until Saturday and see how the toe responds then. Justin Forsett will be the main backup to Arian Foster if Tate can't play on Monday night against the New York Jets.
Fantasy Impact: We'll know more about his status on Saturday, but for now it sounds like Tate will be a game time decision. He's been getting less touches than people thought this year, with only 30 rushing carries as Foster is on pace for well over 400, but we expect the Texans to get him more involved and keep Foster fresh.
