Houston (CBS Houston)– Houston Texans running back Ben Tate will play Sunday night against the AC South leading Indianapolis Colts, despite suffering 4 broken ribs two weeks ago against Kansas City.

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak declared Tate “ready to go” at his press conference Friday afternoon.

Though Kubiak admitted he’s “not a doctor”, he talked about the procedure Tate went through in practice this week to get ready to play.   “The credit has to go to Ben,” said Kubiak, “that he’s doing that, giving it up for his team.”

Tate could find himself the starting back on Sunday night if Arian Foster is unable to go.  Foster has been dealing with a hamstring injury and Kubiak called him a “game time decision.”

Kubiak also said that the team would definitely dress three running backs for Sunday’s game with Indianapolis.  He had not yet decided who the third back would be.

Earlier this week, the Texans signed RBs Deji Karim and Dennis Johnson, and elevated RB Ray Graham from the practice squad due to injuries to both Tate and Foster.
