Tate and Foster combine to power Texans' run game

By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) - Ben Tate was drafted by the Houston Texans in the second round in 2010 and put into a position any rookie would envy.

After a stellar career at Auburn the running back was competing for a starting job.

But almost as quickly as his opportunity came, it was over when a broken right ankle in the first preseason game ended his rookie campaign. Arian Foster emerged to lead the NFL with 1,616 yards rushing, giving Houston a talented backup when Tate returned.

The 24-year-old Tate insists he doesn't waste time thinking of what might have been, saying, "This is where I'm supposed to be."

Now that he's healthy, the Texans (2-0) have one of the most potent running back combinations in the league entering Sunday's game at Denver.
