Ben Tate suffered a nasty ankle injury during the Texans Saturday, and there were rumors late in the evening that the injury could force Tate, the highest running back ever taken by the franchise, to miss his entire rookie year.

According to the Texans' website, Tate will indeed have surgery, and it could happen as early as Tuesday.

Coach Gary Kubiak told reporters that he would know more details relating to Tate's injury come Monday, but he called it "very significant."

It certainly sounds like Tate could miss all of 2010, and that, as mentioned last night, is highly problematic for a Texans team that really wanted to establish a better running game in the coming year.

Steve Slaton and Arian Foster can still provide some punch, but Tate was believed to be "the guy" who could really take the Texans' offense to another level. If his injury is as serious as it sounds, clearly, he won't be, at least this year.

Update (6:26): Nightmare for the Texans, if the Houston Chronicle 's report is correct, because Tate is headed to injured reserve, and will miss the entire season.
