NFL Injury Report: Texans' Ben Tate strains hamstring in win

The Houston Texans came away with a statement win in Week 7, when they decimated the Baltimore Ravens 43-13 and claimed the top record in the AFC (6-1) in the process.

Houston's win came with a small price, however, as running back Ben Tate strained his hamstring in the victory. Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said that Tate's hamstring injury is the "biggest injury concern" coming out of Houston's game against Baltimore.

So far in 2012, Tate has 43 carries for 178 yards and two touchdowns. Tate also has nine receptions on the season.

Tate will have two weeks to prepare for Houston's next game, as the Texans are entering a bye in Week 8. Houston's next game doesn't come until Nov. 4, when the Texans play host to the Buffalo Bills.

If Tate's injury lingers for another two weeks, Houston fans (and fantasy owners) can expect to see Justin Forsett spelling Arian Foster.
