Ben Tate practices Saturday, is questionable for Monday night


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).
