Head coach Lovie Smith confirmed Wednesday that Mills will start at quarterback for the Texans this Sunday against the Cowboys, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports.

As a result, Kyle Allen -- who started the Houston's last two games -- will return to a backup role. Per DJ Bien-Aime of ESPN.com, Smith noted that the team expects "two weeks of watching from the sideline to help" Mills, who has recorded 2,144 passing yards and an 11:11 TD:INT through 10 outings this season. In his return to the starting lineup, the 2021 third-round pick represents an option at his position for those in deeper fantasy formats, as well as for managers in need of signal-caller depth while six NFL teams are on bye Week 14.
