Texans QB Brian Hoyer out for Jets game with concussion

HOUSTON (AP) Houston Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer will miss Sunday's game against the New York Jets as he recovers from a concussion.

T.J. Yates will make his first start since he was a rookie in the playoffs in January 2012. Yates took over in the third quarter on Monday night after Hoyer was injured and threw the game-winning touchdown pass in a 10-6 victory at Cincinnati.

Brandon Weeden, who was claimed off waivers on Wednesday after being released by Dallas, will back Yates up.
