Tate questionable to return for Texans with groin injury

The Houston Texans continue to  have a difficult time keeping running backs on the field.

While Arian Foster returned from a hamstring to start against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Ben Tate limped off the field during the first quarter with what the team later announced as a groin injury. Tate was injured on a run up the middle, and was limping badly as he left the field under his own power. Officially, he is questionable to return.

Tate, who had two rushes for 20 yards before leaving, had back-to-back 100-yard performances in his first two career games this season while filing in for Foster. The Texans are also without Derrick Ward (ankle), making Chris Ogbonnaya the primary backup to Foster.
