For the first time in organized team activities (OTAs), rookie running back Ben Tate participated in individual and 7-on-7 drills with his Texans teammates on Thursday.
The second-round draft pick out of Auburn sat out the first 10 OTA practices because of a hamstring injury.
"It's about time," Tate said afterward. "It felt pretty good. I'm just getting back into the mix, trying to stay on top of everything. My main thing is just to not make mistakes… You might know the plays, but it's always going to be different once you go out there and hit the field."
