The Texans released McCown on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. McCown ultimately didn't suit up for a single game with the Texans in 2020 after having linked with the team midseason. The veteran signal-caller, who will turn 42 this offseason, may be motivated to turn his attention toward coaching instead of playing. Houston now only has AJ McCarron on the depth chart behind Deshaun Watson, who recently reiterated his request to be traded.
McCown (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals. The 41-year-old signal-caller hasn't yet suited up for Houston since signing with the team Nov. 4, as AJ McCarron continues to back up Deshaun Watson heading into Week 16. McCown's most recent game appearance came mid-October of last year with the Eagles, but he hasn't started a game since his last season as a Jet in 2018.
McCown (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. McCown dealt with an illness during the practice week, but he's healthy now. Still, he'll serve as a scratch as usual. AJ McCarron will continue to back up Deshaun Watson.
McCown (illness) was absent from Wednesday's injury report. McCown missed last week's Thanksgiving win over the Lions due to an illness, but this news is evidence that he's been cleared to return. Now healthy, McCown will likely still be inactive going forward anyway, as AJ McCarron has served as the top backup to Deshaun Watson.
McCown (illness) is ruled out for Thursday's game in Detroit. McCown's illness will keep him from travelling with the team to Detroit. AJ McCarron has regularly served as the top backup to Deshaun Watson this season, so it seems probable that McCown would have been inactive even if he were healthy.
