Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs PIT (6 / 41 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Ben Tate suffered an injury late in the 2nd quarter versus the Steelers and did not return to the game. Up until that point, Tate had been running violently and finding lanes with ease. In hindsight, Tate would have been the beneficiary of the rushing attack that crippled the Steelers in the second half, but nothing can be done about that. The severity of Tate's injury is unknown as of this writing. Jene Bramel of Football Guys believes that if the report that Tate received an MRI in Pittsburgh is true, that is a "red flag" that the injury is at a level of severity in which waiting until Monday for the MRI was not an option. However, David J. Chao MD, a former NFL team physician, thinks that the Tate injury looked like just a contusion of the knee (Chao also did not get a great look at the film).


Latest News

Browns | Ben Tate expected to miss Week 3 (Mon Sep 15, 04:22 PM) - Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) likely will not be able to play Week 3, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Our View: The team is more than fine with their rookie RB combination of Terrence West and Isaiah Crowell. West did a good job as the starter in Week 2, and Crowell gives the team a talented backup with a nose for the end zone and big-play ability.

Browns | Week 2 Inactives (Sun Sep 14, 11:35 AM) - The Cleveland Browns have declared LB Barkevious Mingo, RB Ben Tate, DL Ish Kitchen, DL John Hughes, TE Jordan Cameron, WR LaRon Byrd, CB Pierre Desir inactive for Week 2.

Our View: Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge will get more work with Cameron out, but Andrew Hawkins is the main beneficiary in PPR leagues. Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will split the work with Tate out.

Browns | Ben Tate will not play (Fri Sep 12, 06:00 PM) - Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and has been ruled out for Week 2.

Our View: Tate hopes to return after the Browns' Week 4 bye.

Browns | Ben Tate out 2-4 weeks (Wed Sep 10, 08:32 AM) - Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) will miss two to four weeks with a knee sprain. No surgery is required at this point. RBs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell will fill in for Tate.

Browns | No update on Ben Tate (Tue Sep 9, 02:01 PM) - Cleveland Browns RB Ben Tate (knee) has no injury update on his status for Week 2, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Our View: The Browns have two capable rookie backs behind Tate in Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. Fantasy owners should add one or both just in case this Tate injury is serious. He's never played a full 16-game schedule, so it shouldn't come as any surprise that Tate is once again banged up.
