Reports: Texans quarterback T.J. Yates out for season with torn ACL

Texans quarterback T.J. Yates is reportedly out for the season with a torn ACL.

Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates is out for season with torn ACL, according to multiplereports.

In the final two minutes of the first half of Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, Yates went down to the field and held his left knee. The injury occurred on a non-contact play. The quarterback was able to walk off the field, but was taken to the locker room.

The Texans confirmed that he would be out for the remainder of the game. Before exiting, Yates completed just six of 10 passes for 68 yards. Brandon Weeden came in to replace the injured Yates.

Houston was already missing starting quarterback Brian Hoyer after he was ruled out for Sunday’s game to due a concussion he sustained in the Texans’ 27–6 loss against the Patriots.

The Texans claimed Weeden off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys after Hoyer’s concussion. Entering Sunday, Weeden had started in three games for the Cowboys, throwing two touchdowns and two interceptions.
