Ben Tate has four fractured ribs

John McClain on Twitter - [Full Article]

Texans RB Ben Tate just told AP he has 4 broken ribs but expects to play after bye. Arian Foster (hamstring) and Tate are injured and they need another RB.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Texans are hurting at RB. The good news is, they have a bye Week 8. Foster said his hamstring injury wasn't serious, but it's certainly been lingering and is a concern. Strangely, the team just cut RB3 Cierre Wood, among others, for violating team rules. Look for them to make a move this week but also hope Foster and/or Tate can play Week 9.
