Houston Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer will not play Sunday against the New York Jets after suffering memory loss, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Hoyer left last Monday’s win over the Cincinnati Bengals with a concussion, the third of his career.

“[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 the game.

In his place, backup T.J. Yates will make his sixth career start.

Aaron Rodgers limited in practice with right shoulder injury

Brandon Weeden was claimed off waivers on Wednesday and is now getting a crash course on Houston’s playbook in case he has to replace Yates, reports McClain.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET in Houston.
