Texans vs. Packers injury report: Ben Tate is active, Quintin Demps is out

After missing last week's game against the Jets, Texans backup running back Ben Tate is active for the team's Week 6 clash with the Packers.

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Houston Texans running back Ben Tate has been bothered by a sore big toe that caused him to miss last week's game against the New York Jets, but after limited participation in practice early in the week, he will be active against the Packers on Sunday. Tate should help lighten fellow running back Arian Foster's workload in Week 6. Foster has been battling knee soreness and is listed as probable.

Safety Quintin Demps is still recovering from surgery on his forearm and is out against the Packers, while wide receiver Lestar Jean and defensive tackle Shaun Cody were limited in Friday's practice and are listed as probable.

Several other Texans players are listed as probable despite full participation in practice on Friday, and should be in action on Sunday night.
