Ryan Mallett 's teammate, Brian Hoyer, will start against the Jaguars in Week 6, the Houston Chronicle reports.
While coach Bill O'Brien declined to commit to Hoyer as the team's starter for the remainder of the season, Mallett is only worth stashing in the deepest of leagues, as he's no lock to get another chance to start for the Houston Texans moving forward, in the absence of an injury to Hoyer.
Houston Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer will start the Week 6 game against the Jaguars, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Hoyer replaced Ryan Mallett on Thursday night and proceeded to complete 24 of 31 passes for 312 yards, two touchdowns and one interception en route to compiling a 116.6 passer rating.
While O'Brien hasn't hesitated to switch things up at the quarterback position this season, we suspect that this change has a good chance to stick as long as Hoyer remains healthy.
Ryan Mallett (chest) was seen leaving the Houston Texans ' sideline before the first half was over, the Houston Chronicle reports. He found himself involved another controversy, and explained that he thought the half was over.
To an outside observer, it looked like Mallett, who had been removed from the game after getting hit earlier in the second quarter, was miffed about being replaced by Brian Hoyer. Head coach Bill O'Brien appeared to corroborate Mallett's excuse, explaining the he had also thought the half was over before coaches pulled him back. This is the second time Mallett's been involved in a minor controversy. During the preseason, chronicled for the cameras of HBO's "Hard Knocks," he overslept and was late for a practice, just days after losing the training-camp battle to Hoyer.
Brian Hoyer replaced Ryan Mallett in the second quarter of Thursday's 27-20 loss to the Colts, ultimately completing 24 of 31 passes for 312 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception.
Ryan Mallett produced zero points on Houston's first three drives, leading to a benching for the second straight week. Hoyer threw a terrible interception on the Houston Texans ' last drive, but he otherwise played an excellent game, putting up 20 points on six drives. Both of his touchdowns went to rookie WR Jaelen Strong, whose first career NFL target went for a 42-yard score on a hail mary to end the first half. Hoyer will likely be the Week 6 starter, but it will still be interesting to see what head coach Bill O'Brien says in his postgame press conference.
Houston Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer replaced Ryan Mallett during the second quarter of the Thursday night game against the Colts.
Mallett got off to another slow start, completing 5 of 10 passes for 50 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. Benched in the second half of last week's blowout loss to the Falcons, Mallett was again replaced, only this time Bill O'Brien didn't wait until the contest was out of reach.
Hoyer led the team to 10 points on its final two drives of the first half, but seven of those points came on a Hail Mary to rookie wide receiver Jaelen Strong.
