HOUSTON (AP) Houston quarterback Brian Hoyer has turned to acupuncture to help in his recovery after a second concussion in a month.

Hoyer returned to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday, but remains in the league's protocol after suffering a concussion on Dec. 13 and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He spoke to the media for the first time since that concussion and said that he started seeing an acupuncturist after his first concussion on Nov. 16 and that he's continued to see him in the days since the second one.

He believes it's helped his recovery.
