Hoyer out for Texans against Colts because of concussion

Publish date:

HOUSTON (AP) Houston quarterback Brian Hoyer will miss Sunday's game against Indianapolis because of a concussion.

Coach Bill O'Brien had listed Hoyer as doubtful, then said on Wednesday that he will be out against the Colts.

It's the second concussion in less than a month for Hoyer, who also missed a game after getting one on Nov. 16 against the Bengals. He suffered this concussion after being sacked five times in a 27-6 loss to New England on Sunday.

With Hoyer out, the Texans will look to T.J. Yates, who started the last time Hoyer was out and led them to a win. Brandon Weeden will back him up.

Houston enters Sunday's game tied with the Colts for first place in the AFC South.
