Report: Vikings RB Ben Tate will be active and have role Week 12

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/14) Vikings running back Ben Tate will be active and have a role on offense Sunday against the Packers, a source told NFL Network. Tate joined the Vikings just four days ago after being claimed off waivers from the Browns.

The Vikings' backfield is banged up heading into Week 12. Running back Matt Asiata will be sidelined due to a concussion, while running back Jerick McKinnon is listed as probable due to a lower back injury.

Norv Turner says Jerick McKinnon is 'our running back'

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/20/14) Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner clarified the team's backfield situation Thursday, and it was good news for rookie Jerick McKinnon. Turner said the team claimed running back Ben Tate because of injuries at the position and that Tate was not brought in to take McKinnon's job.

"Obviously, we're in a situation where [Wednesday] we had one back that could practice, so the timing of [Tate] being released and the opportunity for us to add a back, certainly it was good timing," Turner told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

"We're excited about Jerick and what he's done, and I see him as our running back," Turner added.

McKinnon did not practice Wednesday due to a back injury, but is expected to be fine for Sunday's game against the Packers. Running back Matt Asiata's status is in doubt after he suffered a concussion Week 11, Turner told the paper.

Report: Vikings claim former Browns RB Ben Tate

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/19/14) The Vikings have claimed deposed Browns featured back Ben Tate off waivers in the wake of the suspension that has sidelined Adrian Peterson for the rest of the season, according to multiple reports.

Tate proved disappointing after signing a free agent contract with Cleveland. He expressed dissatisfaction after losing playing time to rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. He had just two carries for minus-9 yards in the Sunday loss to Houston, which led to the Browns placing him on waivers.

Another rookie now stands in his way of significant reps. It remains to be seen how much Tate plays with Minnesota, which has been featuring Jerick McKinnon in the backfield. McKinnon is averaging 4.9 YPC this season. Tate has just 90 yards in his last 53 carries for a 1.7 YPC average during that stretch.

Report: Colts 'appear interested' in RB Ben Tate

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/14) Down to two healthy running backs, the Colts have "begun researching running back Ben Tate -- including his character and potential fit in Indy's scheme -- and appear interested in possibly claiming him off waivers from the Browns," reports ESPN.com.

Cleveland waived Tate on Tuesday as the Browns opted to move forward with rookies Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West. Tate averaged 3.1 yards per carry but scored four touchowns in eight games.

Indy just lost running back Ahmad Bradshaw to a fractured fibula. Trent Richardson and Dan Herron are the only remaining backs on the Colts' active roster.

Cutting Ben Tate not necessarily a sure thing

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/18/14) Your kneejerk reaction to finding out that Ben Tate has been waived by the Browns will be to cut bait with Tate. With just a few weeks left until the playoffs and waivers set to run Tuesday night, that is a totally defensible decision to make.

However, you shouldn't just rush out to drop Tate for anyone. There are enough teams out there with running back issues that it wouldn't be a surprise to see him catch on quickly. The Colts are an obvious candidate after Ahmad Bradshaw's leg injury, but there are several teams who could be in the market for running back help, so he should find work soon.

Tate was a big disappointment after signing a free agent contract with the Browns, rushing for just 3.1 yards per carry in eight games. Still, he has shown enough prior in his work with the Texans to justify a spot on an NFL roster, and that means he might still have Fantasy value. With how fungible running backs are, and how quickly their fortunes can turn around, hanging on to Tate for another week or so to see where he lands might not be the worst idea, if you can spare the roster spot.
