The Cleveland Browns have signed free-agent RB Ben Tate (Texans) to a two-year deal worth $7 million.

Huddle Up: It's the offseason move everyone expected, it just took a little longer. Tate gets out of Arian Foster's shadow and should get the opportunity to be the workhorse in Cleveland.


Posted: 2/24/2014 2:06pm et

The New York Jets are interested in free-agent RB Ben Tate and may also have interest in free-agent RB Donald Brown (Colts), who may be stuck behind RB Trent Richardson on the Colts' depth chart should he return.

Huddle Up: The Jets spent free agent money on Chris Ivory last offseason and received decent production from an Ivory/Bilal Powell tandem while Mike Goodwin was bogged down by off-the-field issues. There are plenty of offensive issues to address, and while the ground game might not be at the top of that list Tate and/or Brown would be intriguing additions to the run-heavy Jets offense.

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate, who will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, doesn't expect to return to the Texans in 2014. Tate confirmed it by saying he 'probably' won't be back but added, 'you never know.' Tate wants a chance to sign with a different team where he can become the starting running back.

Huddle Up: After missing his rookie season, Tate has had a solid 3-year run in Houston as Arian Foster's backup, and it's definitely now time for the RB to head out on his own.


Posted: 12/18/2013 2:45pm et

The Houston Texans have placed Ben Tate (ribs) on Injured Reserve.

Huddle Up: It's the Dennis Johnson show in championship week. If you are desperate to fill a RB or flex slot, Johnson is a decent option with Tate on IR.


Posted: 12/16/2013 10:50pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) underwent a CAT scan on the four injured ribs he has been playing with. Interim head coach Wade Phillips said Tate got banged up during the team's Week 15 game.

Huddle Up: Tate has been a warrior playing though the injury and has averaged 19 touches a game over the last 3 weeks. It certainly would be no surprise if Tate gets shut down st any time for the remainder of the season.


Posted: 12/2/2013 8:46pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ankle, ribs) likely would've missed practice had the team practiced Monday, Dec. 2.

Huddle Up: Tate, who is still playing with rib fractures, is in a tough spot this week coming off a season-high 22 rushes and turning around on a short week with a game in Jacksonville on Thursday night. You're going to have to monitor Tate's status over the next few days if you're planning on using him Week 14.


Posted: 11/29/2013 7:49pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as probable for Week 13.

Huddle Up: Tate will regain his starting job after getting benched last week with Dennis Johnson probably seeing around 10 carries as well. Tate has a strong match-up versus a Patriots' defense that just allowed 280 yards rushing to Denver but it's hard to trust him as anything more than a flex play with Johnson cutting into his touches now.


Posted: 11/27/2013 6:51pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Huddle Up: Tate will regain his starting job this week after getting benched against Jacksonville but expect Dennis Johnson to see around 10-12 carries as well. The Patriots are struggling to stop the run, so Tate is worth a flex play even with Johnson eating into his touches.


Posted: 11/25/2013 8:38pm et

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said RB Ben Tate (ribs) will remain the team's starting running back even though RB Dennis Johnson rushed for more yards in the team's Week 12 game. Tate rushed for one yard on seven carries while Johnson rushed for 74 yards on 13 carries.

Huddle Up: Too little, too late for the fantasy GMs who were burned by Tate and the Texans in Week 12. You might have no other choice than to move ahead with the RB in deeper leagues, but who knows what to expect from Houston down the stretch with its season having hit the fan in spectacular fashion.


Posted: 11/13/2013 7:20pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Huddle Up: Tate is battling through four broken ribs but he's expected to start this week against Oakland. Tate should see most of the work again with Dennis Johnson spelling him when he needs a rest.


Posted: 11/12/2013 6:28pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) said he's improving while playing through four broken ribs. He ran for 56 yards on 15 carries in the team's Week 10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, but wanted the ball more. 'It's easier,' he said. 'I felt like I could move a little better, catch better and have a little more wiggle. Hopefully, it's getting better and better.'

Huddle Up: Tate has weathered 41 touches in 2 games since sustaining the fractures, and the Texans will be counting on the RB even more now that Arian Foster's season is done.


Posted: 11/5/2013 8:38pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) said he was in a pretty good amount of pain after the team's Week 9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but he still plans on playing against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10. Tate said it's 'hard to breathe and laugh.'

Huddle Up: Props to Tate's toughness after he gutted out 23 touches against Indy, and he may be in line for a similar workload Week 10 if Arian Foster's hamstring doesn't mend this week.


Posted: 11/1/2013 3:19pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) practiced again Friday, Nov. 1, and he will be ready to play in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts. Tate is dealing with four cracked ribs and said the pain is manageable.

Huddle Up: Even if fellow RB Arian Foster is unable to go with his hamstring injury, Tate likely will be kept on carry count with his ribs, meaning newly-signed Deji Karim or former practice squadder Ray Graham would see work.


Posted: 10/30/2013 12:12pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) will be very limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, and will be a game-time decision in Week 9.

Huddle Up: Tate is sporting four broken ribs, so it makes no sense to expose him to further injury in practice. He's said he's going to play, but if he does he'd be a risk to hold up to much of a workload.


Posted: 10/29/2013 10:12am et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) said Monday, Oct. 28, that he plans to play in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts despite nursing four broken ribs. 'Every day they get better and better,' Tate said. 'So I think by Sunday, I'll be fine.'

Huddle Up: Between Tate's broken ribs and Arian Foster's bad hamstring the Texans are all kinds of banged up in the backfield. Deji Karim was signed as insurance, but both Tate and Foster are indicating they'll try to give it a go this weekend.


Posted: 10/21/2013 11:06pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) said he is dealing with four broken ribs but expects to play after the team's Week 8 bye.

Huddle Up: The Texans' bye week comes at an opportune time as the team's RB situation suddenly is riddled with question marks given Tate's ribs and Arian Foster's hamstring. FB Greg Jones is the only other RB on the roster, while undrafted rookie Ray Graham is on the team's practice squad. Look for the Texans to make some sort of move, bye week or not.


Posted: 8/2/2013 12:40pm et

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate said his groin tightened up Friday, Aug. 2, and he left practice early. He hopes to return to practice Sunday, Aug. 4, after the off day.

Huddle Up: Tate was enjoying his opportunity to run with the Houston starters while Arian Foster has been sidelined; now he's down and Foster is expected back this weekend. Looks like this handcuff is made for each other.
