Houston Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer will start Sunday against the Saints after passing concussion protocol, coach Bill O’Brien said Monday.
“[Hoyer] wasn’t functioning correctly as to how we know he’d usually function calling a play, receiving a play and trying to communicate it to the offense,” head coach Bill O'Brien told reporters after last Monday’s win.
In seven starts this season, Hoyer has completed 59.5% of his passes for 1,704 yards and 13 touchdowns, with four interceptions.
Kickoff between Houston and New Orleans is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
