Gary Kubiak: 'Ben Tate could play for Houston Texans on Friday'

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak says that running back Ben Tate may be fit enough to feature in the team's pre-season game on Friday.

Gary Kubiak has said that Ben Tate may be able to play in the Houston Texans' opening pre-season game later this week.

The running back returned to practice yesterday following a three-day absence with a tight groin.

The head coach told the Texans' official website: "I'm going to watch him practice in the morning. He'll be back on the field in the morning with all the indications I have and we'll go from there. It will either be Tate or [Dennis Johnson]. One or the other.

"My protocol has been play our starters for a little bit, for a series or two. Then to play our twos for a good quarter-and-a-half and then play our threes in the last quarter or quarter-and-a-half depending on how that goes."

The Texans face the Minnesota Vikings on Friday.
