    Texans' AJ McCarron: Sticking in Houston

    AJ McCarron announced via his personal Instagram Monday that he and the Houston Texans have agreed to terms on a contract.McCarron will return to the Texans for the second straight season, as he's provided a nice insurance policy behind Deshaun Watson. McCarron appeared in two games last season, completing 21 of 37 passes for 225 yards and an interception. Barring any additions to the quarterback room, the 29-year-old likely will operate as the team's backup again in 2020.

    Texans' AJ McCarron: Lacks explosiveness in spot start

    AJ McCarron completed 21 of 36 passes for 225 yards and an interception in the team's Week 17 loss to the Titans. He added five rushes for 39 yards and a score.McCarron led the team on an impressive opening drive that resulted in a touchdown, completing four of seven passes for 49 yards. However, he was able to orchestrate only one more scoring drive, capping a 16-play, 75-yard drive with a one-yard rushing touchdown late in the third quarter. McCarron is set to be a free agent at the conclusion of the season and should find a role as a backup, whether in Houston or elsewhere.

    Texans' AJ McCarron: On tap for Week 17 start

    AJ McCarron is expected to serve as the Houston Texans' starting quarterback Sunday against the Titans, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.The Texans can still move up from the No. 4 seed in the AFC postseason to the No. 3 seed, but only with a win and a Kansas City loss. Considering the Chiefs are heavy home favorites over the Chargers and are kicking off at 1 p.m. ET, there's a good chance the Texans will be locked into the No. 4 position before their game kicks off at 4:25 p.m. ET. With that in mind, coach Bill O'Brien apparently isn't inclined to take any chances with Deshaun Watson (back) in the regular-season finale, as the star quarterback will be ticketed for backup duties. McCarron is thus on track to see the field for just the second time this season for what will be his first start since 2015, when he was with the Bengals. The Alabama product will have to make do with a depleted receiving corps, as Will Fuller (groin) has been ruled out, while Russini notes that DeAndre Hopkins (illness) will be active but isn't expected to play much. Kenny Stills (knee) is also questionable for Week 17 and could be limited if he's active.

    Texans' AJ McCarron: Makes season debut in blowout

    AJ McCarron went 0-for-1 and was sacked in Sunday's 41-7 loss to the Ravens.McCarron's mop up of Sunday's blowout loss was his season debut. Starter Deshaun Watson, who was sacked six times and absorbed 10 quarterback hits, had not been knocked around like this since a Week 4 loss to the Panthers, so to avoid any risk of injury, McCarron made his first appearance in a Houston Texans uniform.

    Texans' AJ McCarron: Expected for Week 1

    AJ McCarron (thumb) is expected to be on the active roster for Week 1 against the Saints, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.The Houston Texans ran into some quarterback depth trouble in the preseason when McCarron injured his thumb during joint practices with the Packers prior to preseason Week 1. Then in preseason Week 4, Joe Webb (foot) went down with a significant injury. McCarron warmed up prior to the preseason finale and looked like he's ready to throw if need be. The Texans may get by with two quarterbacks for now, but it's likely they'll be on the lookout for additional depth just in case.

    Texans' AJ McCarron: On track for regular season

    AJ McCarron (thumb) is on track to be ready by Week 1 according to head coach Bill O'Brien, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.McCarron has missed the past two preseason contests due to an undisclosed thumb injury and it now seems likely that he will miss a third. If that is the case, look for Joe Webb or Jordan Ta'amu to a majority of the reps against the Rams. However, it is reassuring to have McCarron ready for the beginning the regular season.

    Texans' AJ McCarron: Could miss preseason

    AJ McCarron (thumb) could remain sidelined the entire preseason, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.McCarron sustained a thumb injury during Tuesday's practice, the severity of which will cause him to sit out Thursday's preseason tilt against the Packers and possibly the remainder of Houston's preseason contests. Third-string quarterback Joe Webb is a prime candidate to see increased preseason action while McCarron remains sidelined, and the Houston Texans could opt to sign another quarterback to the roster.

    Texans' AJ McCarron: Tending to injury

    AJ McCarron was forced to leave practice Tuesday due to a right thumb injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.It's unclear how he picked up the injury, but he seemed to hurt his right throwing hand Tuesday, and didn't return to practice. McCarron stands to back up Deshaun Watson in Houston, so don't be surprised if the team doesn't rush him back for Thursday's preseason game against Green Bay. If the Alabama product doesn't play, third-string quarterback Joe Webb stands to take on an increased workload.
