Kubiak: 'Tate Will Go On IR'

I hesitated on reporting this earlier, because John McClain has had some problems with the facts in this story, but his earlier Chronicle report was confirmed earlier when Texans coach Gary Kubiak stated that Tate is “...gonna go on IR, guys,” to the press after the Texans afternoon practice.

Kubiak said that the injury was a fracture, and that there was “some other problems in there too.”

The Texans will carry on with Arian Foster and Steve Slaton as their running backs this year, with Chris Henry and Jeremiah Johnson looking to grab that third spot.

I’ll have a bigger wrap-up posted later this evening, where we’ll discuss matters like Aaron Schobel’s retirement.
