Tate has been hampered by a hamstring injury and he did not practice on Wednesday, leaving his availability in question for Sunday. Guard Cody White (illness) and Andre Johnson (non-injury, no other reason given) also missed Wednesday's practice, but should be ready to go at full strength versus Buffalo.
Linebacker Bryan Braman (back), corner Johnathan Joseph, defensive end Antonio Smith (ankle) and nose tackle Earl Mitchell (ankle) were among the Texans who were limited in practice. All are questionable at this point.
On the positive side, center Ben Jones (illness), guard Wade Smith (knee), safety Shiloh Keo (back) and quarterback T.J. Yates (elbow) all were full participants. All should be active this weekend barring any unforeseen setbacks.
