Yates is signing with the Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Yates will join the Dolphins to provide the team with quarterback depth in the wake of the knee injury starting signal-caller Ryan Tannehill suffered in Week 14. It's not clear how long Tannehill will be out, but Yates will serve as the Dolphins' backup quarterback behind Matt Moore for as long as Tannehill is sidelined.
Yates (knee) has been cleared to return after tearing his ACL last season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Yates remains unsigned, but could pick up attraction now that he has been fully cleared from the season-ending injury. With several teams in need of quarterback depth, the 29-year-old could find his way onto an NFL roster before the regular season begins.
Yates' (knee) torn ACL has been confirmed by testing, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Yates' season will now come to a close after a couple of valiant efforts in relief of Brian Hoyer (concussion). With Yates out, Brandon Weeden becomes the Texans' stand-in starting quarterback until Hoyer clears league protocol.
It appears as though Yates suffered a torn ACL on Sunday against the Colts, ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports. Brandon Weeden replaced Yates on Sunday, with Brian Hoyer out with a concussion. While tests will be required to confirm the severity of Yates' injury, it looks like his season is probably done.
Yates is slated to start Sunday's game against the Colts. He will draw the assignment with Brian Hoyer (concussion) not available to play Sunday, which makes Yates a fantasy lineup option in deeper fantasy formats this week. In three appearances this season, including one start (11/22 against the Jets) that he won, Yates has completed 22 of 47 passes for 302 yards with three TDs and no picks.
