RB Tate Has Torn Ankle Ligaments and a Fractured Fibula

The injury to rookie running back Ben Tate is rather severe, as he suffered torn ankle ligaments as well as a fractured fibula. The good news is that he is expected to be back for the 2011 season.

Houston Texans rookie running back Ben Tate’s season-ending injury included a fractured fibula, in addition to torn ankle ligaments. “The surgery should be fine; he should be back playing next year,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “It’s a big blow because we were counting on him a great deal. He’s a good-looking young player, but he’ll be back. “I just told him that I thought a lot of him,” Kubiak said. “I know I’ve been hard on him. I was hard on him because I knew was going to help this team a great deal. And he will again.”
