Houston Texans running backs Arian Foster (hamstring) and Ben Tate (ribs) are both expected to be very limited in practice on Wednesday morning, according to a report by Indianapolis Colts writer Kevin Bowen. Both players are expected to be game-time decisions when the Texans take on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football in Week 9.
It's a tough situation for fantasy owners of either running back considering they won't be able to fall back on Sunday's afternoon games for replacements. That said, Tate appears more likely to play than Foster as he's been dealing with his rib injury for the last couple of weeks and has still managed to work through it.
Foster on the other hand did play against the Kansas City Chiefs prior to the team's bye back in Week 7 but left the game in the first quarter after carrying the ball just four times.
The Colts defense gives up the eighth least fantasy points to running backs this season.
