  • Texans' Jeff Driskel: Remains with Texans

    Driskel signed a one-year contract extension with Houston on Friday, Aaron Wilson of reports. Driskel finished 2021 on injured reserve after suffering a fractured collarbone in December, and he appeared in only one game during the campaign. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the 28-year-old will shift back to quarterback after seeing action at tight end late last season.

  • Texans' Jeff Driskel: Back from COVID list, still on IR

    Driskel (collarbone) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

The tight end will remain on IR going into the 2022 offseason where he will become a free agent.

  • Texans' Jeff Driskel: Serves on special teams

    Driskel was active as a tight end and played 10 snaps on special teams in Sunday's 30-16 win over Jacksonville. Driskel, a quarterback who has added tight end to his resume, was active for the second straight week. He did not get into last week's game against Seattle but made his non-quarterback debut against Jacksonville on Sunday.

  • Texans' Jeff Driskel: Moving to tight end

    Houston assistant coach Andy Bischoff said Thursday that Driskel is transitioning from quarterback to tight end, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports. Bischoff described Driskel as "a rare athlete," and one who could also contribute on special teams, but the coach added this is a developmental process for the 28-year-old. With that in mind, Driskel is unlikely to be active on game days for Houston in the short term, if at all this season. The organization doesn't consider him a quarterback at this time, per conversations between Bischoff, head coach David Culley and general manager Nick Caserio.

  • Texans' Jeff Driskel: Elevated to active roster

    Driskel was elevated from the Texans' practice squad Saturday. Driskel will assume backup duties for the Texans for a third straight contest while Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) remains sidelined. The 2016 sixth-rounder hasn't taken any snaps across the last two weeks.

  • Jeff Driskel: Reverts to practice squad

    Driskel reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Driskel joined the active roster for each of the last two games to serve as the backup to rookie QB Davis Mills, but he'll return to the practice squad following the Week 4 loss. The 28-year-old will be eligible to be elevated once again for Sunday's contest against the Patriots.

  • Texans' Jeff Driskel: Set for backup duties

    Driskel was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Driskel will once again take over the backup duties behind Davis Mills with Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) sidelined. Because Driskel was called up as COVID-19 replacement, he still has another week as an elevated practice squad call-up available, which gives the Texans plenty of roster flexibility as they continue to navigate their quarterback room.

  • Jeff Driskel: Rejoins Houston

    Driskel was signed to Houston's practice squad Wednesday. Driskel was with the Texans during the preseason and was a camp casualty Tuesday before rejoining the team Wednesday. Houston's quarterback situation may eventually change, but starting Week 1, Tyrod Taylor is expected to start with third-round pick Davis Mills backing him up. Meanwhile Deshaun Watson made the 53-man roster, but he's not expected to suit up Sundays.

  • Jeff Driskel: Could sign with Dallas

    Driskel will meet with the Cowboys on Friday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. If the 28-year-old signs with the Cowboys, he would likely slot in as the No. 2 quarterback behind Dak Prescott (ankle). Driskel has played for three different teams in his three-year NFL career since making his debut for the Bengals in 2018, posting a 13:8 TD:INT, 58.6 percent completion rate and 6.1 YPA in 15 games.

  • Broncos' Jeff Driskel: Finishes 2020 with three touchdowns

    Driskel completed 35 of 64 passes for 432 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions during the 2020 season. He added 28 yards on six carries. Driskel filled in admirably for Drew Lock after the latter injured his shoulder in Week 2 against Pittsburgh, nearly leading the comeback. A ho-hum outing in Week 3 against Tampa Bay pushed him down the depth chart, and he didn't record a touch after a carry in Week 4. Driskel actually finished with a team-high quarterback rating of 78.4, but that does not quite provide the veteran stability Denver needs with youngsters Lock and Brett Rypien on the roster. The Broncos would have a net savings of $2.5 million against the cap should they move on from Driskel, and that seems likely as the team figures to look for a more established hedge for its bet on Lock.

  • Broncos' Jeff Driskel: Healthy scratch Sunday

    Driskel (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Patriots, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Driskel struggled in his lone start against Tampa Bay this year, completing 17 of 30 passes for 176 yards, a touchdown and an interception, while Brett Rypien showed a bit of promise in his Week 4 win over the Jets. With Drew Lock (shoulder) returning to the lineup, Rypien will serve as the backup while Driskel watches the game in street clothes.

  • Broncos' Jeff Driskel: Benched in loss

    Driskel was benched in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Buccaneers, and coach Vic Fangio said after the game that he replaced Driskel with Brett Rypien "to see if he could get rid of the ball quicker," Mike Klis of 9News reports. Driskel completed 17 of 30 passes for 176 yards, one touchdown and one interception before being replaced. Rypien completed his first eight passes to lead the team down the field before throwing a red-zone interception. Both quarterbacks averaged 5.9 yards per pass, and Fangio refused to name a starter for Thursday's Week 4 game against the Jets, though the team won't have much time to deliberate given the quick turnaround.

  • Broncos' Jeff Driskel: May start multiple weeks

    Driskel is slated to start against the Buccaneers in Week 3 and as long as Drew Lock (shoulder) remains sidelined, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Driskel looks set to start at least Denver's next two contests -- against the Buccaneers and the Jets -- after which point Lock will be evaluated. The nature of Lock's rotator/labral injury puts him at risk of missing up to six weeks, so Driskel could see the opportunity to make a number of starts. The journeyman signal-caller performed well in relief of Lock against Pittsburgh's vaunted defense Sunday, when he completed 18 of 34 pass attempts for 256 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, but he'll have to manage without top wideout Courtland Sutton (knee) going forward.

  • Broncos' Jeff Driskel: Plays respectably after Lock injury

    Driskel completed 18 of 34 pass attempts for 256 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Steelers. Driskel was summoned into action early when Drew Lock (shoulder) left with an injury. He managed a respectable average of 7.5 yards per attempt against a stout defense and completed touchdown passes to Noah Fant and Melvin Gordon as he helped his team hang tough in a difficult road matchup, though his interception in the second quarter helped Pittsburgh build a lead. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Lock is expected to be out 2-6 weeks with an AC injury, meaning Driskel should get the nod in next Sunday's home matchup against the Buccaneers.

  • Lions' Jeff Driskel: Gets two-year deal from Denver

    Driskel (hamstring) agreed Wednesday with the Broncos on a two-year, $5 million contract, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Driskel showed that he may just be more than just a competent backup across three starts for Detroit last season, and he'll now hold down the fort behind Drew Lock in Denver. The addition of Driskel makes it increasingly more likely that the Broncos part ways with veteran signal caller-caller Joe Flacco (neck) ahead of the 2020 campaign.

  • Lions' Jeff Driskel: Heading to Denver

    Driskel (hamstring) is expected to sign with the Broncos, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Driskel gives Denver another backup option behind Drew Lock, leaving Joe Flacco's status with the team in question. Driskel played in three contests for the Lions last season before suffering a season-ending hamstring injury. He compiled 685 passing yards with a 59.0 passing percentage, to go along with four touchdowns and four interceptions.

  • Lions' Jeff Driskel: Unlikely to start Thursday

    The Lions are expected to start David Blough at quarterback Thursday versus the Bears, pushing Driskel (hamstring) down the depth chart, Jeremy Fowler of reports. Driskel's practice reps were limited this week due to a hamstring injury, which is enough of a lingering issue to force the Lions to turn to Blough. It's unclear if Driskel will be on the Lions' inactive list or suiting up as an emergency option, but Blough, an undrafted rookie, is on pace for his first NFL start.

  • Lions' Jeff Driskel: Questionable for Thanksgiving Day

    Driskel (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Bears. Driskel logged a trio of limited practice sessions this week while he tended to a hamstring injury coming out of Sunday's loss to the Redskins. His status for Thanksgiving Day looks like it may hinge on a pregame warmup, with final word on his availability (or lack thereof) set to come when Detroit releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to the 12:30 p.m. ET kickoff. With Matthew Stafford (back) already ruled out, the Lions would turn to undrafted rookie David Blough under center if Driskel is unable to play.

  • Lions' Jeff Driskel: Throws three picks in loss

    Driskel completed 20 of 33 passes for 207 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions during Sunday's 19-16 loss to Washington. He added 63 yards on the ground on nine carries. Driskel showed off some of his athleticism during Sunday's sloppy contest, but he ultimately helped fuel Washington's comeback with a costly interception with about a minute remaining and the Lions driving for the win. Driskel shot downfield to Marvin Jones was jumped by cornerback Quinton Dunbar and set up a short field for a game-winning Washington field goal. Driskel threw his third interception of the game on the following drive, with the Lions desperate to pull off a miracle comeback. Driskel has filled in admirably for Matthew Stafford (back), especially when using his legs, but he's come up short in all three of his starts. Thursday brings a Thanksgiving matchup against the Bears, against whom Driskel accounted for 306 total yards, a passing touchdown and an interception in Week 9.

  • Lions' Jeff Driskel: Accounts for three TDs vs. Dallas

    Driskel completed 15 of 26 pass attempts for 209 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Cowboys. He also carried eight times for 51 yards and a touchdown during the 35-27 loss. Although Driskel completed just 58 percent of his passes, he still averaged a respectable 8.0 yards per attempt thanks to some big gains. He completed two touchdown passes to Marvin Jones and added another score with his legs in what amounted to a solid performance from a fantasy perspective. Driskel could remain the starter for multiple weeks while Matthew Stafford (back) is on the sidelines, and next Sunday's matchup with the Redskins could present him with more opportunities to produce.
