As the Texans prepare to attempt to extend their record to 5-0, they may have running back Ben Tate on Monday night in New York.

Then again, they may not.

Tate is officially questionable for the game with a toe injury, and he practiced on Saturday.

“I expect him to go but I am very comfortable with Justin [Forsett] and the practices he’s had if he’s our [backup] in the game,” coach Gary Kubiak said.  “He will do a good job for us. We’ll see.”

Safety Quintin Demps (thumb, forearm) and receiver Lestar Jean (knee) are out for Houston.  A total of 14 Texans are probable, including starting running back Arian Foster (hamstring) and receiver Andre Johnson (groin).

    We’re not going to need Ben Tate to destroy the Jets.

    Why bother risking him on a JV team. Save Tate for a real team.

    Wise to rest Ben Tate, maybe the best back-up in the league, so he can healthy while one of the best running backs in the league will be running wild over the Jets Defense.

    Hey Fantasy Owners; Look for Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels to have big games.

    Since I have this guy, its tempting to play him as he had awesome games last year.
    Hard to judge when to play both, Foster and Ben
