The Houston Texans likely will be without their starting signal-caller another game.
Brian Hoyer (concussion) hasn’t been cleared to play against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, a source informed of his status told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport on Saturday. Hoyer, who will travel with the team to Tennessee, hasn’t been officially ruled out, though, and was listed as questionable by the team Friday.
While Weeden has been solid in relief situations, the 32-year-old quarterback hasn’t won a start since 2012. He went 0-3 in starts with the Dallas Cowboys this season.
Hoyer suffered the concussion during the Dec. 13 loss to the Patriots. Backup quarterback T.J. Yates took over in that one but was lost to a season-ending torn ACL early in the game against the Colts. Outside of Hoyer and Weeden, the only active player on the roster with quarterback experience is B.J. Daniels, who was recently signed for depth.
Here’s the rest of the injury news we are tracking:
Cowboys wideout Dez Bryant (foot) didn’t practice Friday and has been ruled out by the team for Sunday’s game. Cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) has also been ruled out. Fellow wideout Cole Beasley (knee/illness) is questionable.
3. Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (concussion) was officially ruled out by the team Saturday for Monday’s AFC showdown against the Broncos. NFL Media’s Rand Getlin reported Wednesday that Eifert would not play. Safety George Iloka (groin) sat out Saturday practice and is doubtful.
7. Saints quarterback Drew Brees is questionable after it was revealed he has a torn plantar fascia. Wide receiver Marques Colston (chest) will not play against the Jaguars, a source briefed on the injury told NFL Media’s Rand Getlin on Saturday. Tight end Benjamin Watson (knee) is questionable.
