    Texans' Brandon Weeden: Claimed by Texans

    The Texans have claimed Weeden on waivers from the Cowboys, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Per the report, the move would appear to signal that Brian Hoyer (concussion) could be out this Sunday against the Jets, and in such a scenario, Weeden would bolster the Texans' QB depth behind T.J. Yates.

    Brandon Weeden: Released by Cowboys

    Weeden was released by the Cowboys on Tuesday. Weeden was removed from the roster to open up a spot for Tony Romo, who is on track to return to action Sunday against the Dolphins after recovering from a broken collarbone. Weeden put up better numbers than fellow quarterback Matt Cassel in their stints as Romo's fill-in, but the Cowboys are apparently more comfortable with Cassel, and will stick with him as Romo's backup. It remains to be seen what Weeden's next move will be, but he will likely fill a reserve role wherever he ends up.

    Cowboys' Brandon Weeden informed that he has lost starting QB gig

    Brandon Weeden was told that Matt Cassel will replace him as the Cowboys' starting quarterback, ESPN's Ed Werder reports. Weeden's recent opportunity was actually going a bit better than his previous chances in the NFL, until he looked totally incompetent in Sunday's 30-6 loss to the Patriots. Matt Cassel won't necessarily be an upgrade, but the Cowboys probably figure that he also can't be much of a downgrade. Even if Dez Bryant (foot) returns after the bye week, Cassel will be one of the least attractive options at quarterback for a Week 7 matchup with the Giants.

    Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden to be evaluated during bye

    Coach Jason Garrett said Monday that the Cowboys will evaluate the entire roster during their upcoming Week 6 bye, Marc Sessler of reports. "We're gonna evaluate our quarterbacks, we're gonna evaluate our offensive line, we're gonna evaluate our tight ends, our receivers, our running backs, everybody on defense and everybody in the kicking game," Garrett said. "We'll do that this week. We'll make any determinations as the week goes on." While the Cowboys have problems across the board, as intimated by Garrett's comments, the quarterback situation is poised to dominate the sports radio circuit during the bye week. Brandon Weeden has so far posted a 72.4 completion percentage, but explosive plays have been nonexistent since Tony Romo broke his collarbone in Week 2. As evidence, Weeden boasts 7.54 yards per attempt in Romo's stead, culminating in a mark of 4.82 in Sunday's pummeling at the hands of the Patriots. If the Cowboys opt for change, Matt Cassel would be the obvious replacement due to his starting experience, but the aforementioned by will likely delay any decision for some time.

    Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden struggles again in loss to Patriots

    Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden completed 26 of 39 passes for 188 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 30-6 loss to New England. He had three carries for 18 yards. Weeden looked shaky throughout, and had a tough time sustaining drives. Even in garbage time, he couldn't lead the Cowboys to a touchdown, misfiring to an open Terrance Williams around the goal line on the their last offensive snap of the game. Dallas has a bye next week, so keep an eye on things, as the team could turn to veteran QB Matt Cassel in Week 7.

    Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden quiet until final quarter of Week 4 loss

    Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden completed 16 of 26 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Saints. Weeden got 67 of his yards on a deep throw to a wide-open Brice Butler, and he also had some nice gains on the game-tying drive, which ended with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams on fourth down. The Cowboys otherwise deployed a very conservative strategy for the second straight week, relying on dump-offs and a mostly ineffective running game. Weeden actually played a decent game, but there's a good reason the Cowboys are limiting his impact, and he probably won't get to truly air it out unless the team falls behind by a wide margin. Of course, such a scenario could come to pass in Week 5, with the 3-0 Patriots traveling to Dallas.

    Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden merely OK in loss to Falcons

    Cowboys replacement quarterback Brandon Weeden tried to do his best Tony Romo impression Sunday against Atlanta. He was certainly accurate enough, but he couldn't successfully pass the ball into the end zone and wound up on the short end of the score. Weeden stretched his successive completion run to 21 passes and finished 22 of 26 for 232 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. He hit only four receivers, though the absence of Dez Bryant certainly hindered him. He will attempt to maintain his accuracy and increase his production next Sunday against the host Saints.

    Cowboys to start quarterback Brandon Weeden on Sunday

    Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday that quarterback Brandon Weeden will start Sunday's game against the Falcons, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. When Tony Romo was diagnosed with a broken clavicle Sunday, it was assumed that Weeden would be under center during Romo's entire recovery period, but the Cowboys acquired Matt Cassel from the Bills on Tuesday, potentially creating competition for Weeden. Indeed, Garrett confirmed as much Wednesday, noting that Cassel was brought in 'to compete.' While Weeden will get the initial nod in Romo's stead, the Cowboys' quarterback situation may be in flux over the next two months.

    Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden throws TD in relief of injured Romo

    Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden completed all seven of his pass attempts for 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-10 win at Philadelphia. He was forced into action because Tony Romo fractured his left clavicle, and is expected to miss 4-to-12 weeks. A more concrete timeline for Romo should be available soon, but those that play in two-QB leagues or deeper formats, will certainly want to give Weeden a look, although he would have looked more attractive if Dez Bryant (ankle) were available over the next month or two. In any event, Weeden wasn't asked to do much Sunday, as the Cowboys were leading when he entered the game. He did throw a nice 42-yard touchdown strike to Terrance Williams late in the fourth quarter to ice the win. In Week 3, Weeden will take on the Falcons at home.
