Rookie running back Ben Tate, the second-round pick out of Auburn, has had an up-and-down camp so far according to Kubiak. “He’s every bit the talent that we drafted,” Kubiak said. “He’s learning to be a pro. He has to catch up because he missed a lot time because he missed OTAs. He needs to know to get his motor going when he leaves out of the locker room and not 30 minutes into practice. He’s working and he’s giving us what he’s got. He could help this team if he continues to grow up.”
Barring injury, all indications point toward Arian Foster being the lead dog in Houston.
