Source: Texans RB Ben Tate (Ribs) to be placed on IR today.
Dennis Johnson (13) and Deji Karim (12) played a similar number of snaps last week, so it's not clear at this point who will be the lead back in Week 16. The Broncos are #11 in RB aFPA over the past 10 weeks, so it's not a great matchup either. This is probably a situation to avoid unless the Texans reveal their workload plans for the two backs. Carries could be at a premium if the Texans fall behind. Johnson figures to have the advantage in the passing game.
