Texans RBs' Arian Foster And Ben Tate To Split Carries For The Time Being
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster wasn't thrilled with his usage in the season opener, showing frustration on the sidelines. It's possible that Foster will have to get used to watching teammate Ben Tate more, not less, in the coming weeks.
"I wish it would have come out a little more closer to even; I think I said that after the game," coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday of the team's split of carries, via the team's official website. "Obviously, it was Arian's first time out this year. He didn't play any in the preseason. I think Ben's had an excellent preseason. I want to keep it somewhat close right now and watch them working to (see) what's going on."
Kubiak said he eventually expects Foster to be the lead guy. But Kubiak wants to limit Foster's workload as he works his way back into form after missing all of the preseason with a calf injury.
Tate showed more burst than Foster in the opener, averaging 6.1 yards-per-carry on nine carries.
