Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (toe) is officially inactive for Monday Night Football against the New York Jets, reports Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. Tate missed practice on Thursday and Friday as the team hoped that resting his injured toe would help him play Monday, but it's not happening. Justin Forsett will take his place as the primary backup to Arian Foster.
Fantasy Impact: Forsett has only six carries on the year, but he got 35 yards for a robust 5.8 YPC. He's an intriguing waiver pickup tonight if the Texans blow out the Jets as expected. Here are the Texans' other inactives: WR Lestar Jean, CB Brandon Harris, CB Roc Carmichael, S Quintin Demps, OT Andrew Gardner and OG Brandon Brooks.
