Texans running back Arian Foster (thumb, chest, hamstring) is probable to play against the Texans on Sunday. He missed Thursday's practice with a few minor injuries and is expected to play without restrictions.
Ben Tate put in a full week of practice and is listed as probable with an elbow injury. He will play and spell Foster as needed.
The Texans' ground game hasn't been as effective as usual, but that's going to have to change. The team is going to start Case Keenum at quarterback, so the Chiefs and their vaunted pass rush are likely licking their chops. The team might try to run the ball 40 times come hell or high water.
Fantasy impact: If there was a time that Ben Tate could be worth a look because he could see 15 touches, this is probably the game. Of course, the Chiefs are one of the most disciplined defenses in the league, so Houston might not be able to shred them for over 150 yards. Foster owners have to start him while Tate owners can view him as a flex in hopes that he can break a long run.
