The Texans placed Webb on injured reserve Saturday due to a foot injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Wilson notes that the team considers Webb's season to be over because of this injury. The 32-year-old suffered the injury Thursday in Houston's preseason finale against the Rams. Webb was expected to slot in as the third-string passer, but now it seems likely that the team will try to bring in another quarterback for depth.
Webb suffered a right foot injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Rams, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
According to the team, Webb's injury is serious, though it's unclear how much time he'll miss. Webb was expected to slot in as the third-string quarterback while also contributing for the Texans on special teams.
Webb completed 14 of 25 passes for 186 yards and one touchdown with one interception in Saturday's preseason Week 2 win over the Lions.
Webb came in after Deshaun Watson played the first series of the game, getting heavy usage for the second straight week. With AJ McCarron sidelined by a thumb injury that could cause him to miss all of preseason, Webb is operating as the Texans' No. 2 quarterback for now.
Webb is returning to Houston on a one-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Webb is an interesting player to have in the fold given his capabilities on both offense and special teams. In addition to serving as a depth quarterback, the 32-year-old also functions as an emergency wide receiver -- which proved useful in 2018 when wideout injuries forced Webb into playing 32 offensive snaps in Week 14 against the Colts. In Houston, Webb is the clear third-string signal-caller behind Deshaun Watson and AJ McCarron.
Webb was pressed into duty as a slot receiver Sunday and caught two of three targets for 13 yards in a 24-21 loss to Indianapolis.
Webb is Houston's third-string quarterback and a full-timer on special teams but was needed when DeAndre Carter left the game with a concussion. Carter was getting reps because Keke Coutee (hamstring) was inactive for a third straight week. Coach Bill O'Brien preferred using the versatile Webb, who has played receiver in the NFL and had eight career receptions prior to Sunday, over an established wideout like Sammie Coates, who has limited experience in the slot. If health issues linger into Week 15 against the Jets, the Texans could make Vyncint Smith active next week, and they have a couple of wide receivers on their practice squad in addition to Coates.
Webb was re-signed by the Texans on Sunday, NFL insider Adam Caplan reports.
Webb was cut by the Texans on Saturday as the reserve quarterback was an original omission from the 53-man roster, but a spot became available and the team elected to bring back the versatile 31-year-old. He'll continue to provide depth behind starter Deshaun Watson with Brandon Weeden still on the roster as well.
Webb led the Texans in rushing and passing during Thursday night's preseason win over the Chiefs. He completed six of 13 passes for 56 yards and rushed four times for 42 yards.
Not surprisingly, Webb was off target on more than half of his throws, but his versatility was on full display. For a quarter-and-a-half, Webb played on various special teams units before being inserted at quarterback midway through the second quarter. He moved the chains a couple of times with his legs and apparently will do anything to make the team. At present, he's third on the depth chart behind Deshaun Watson and Brandon Weeden.
Webb signed with the Texans on Thursday, Jonathan Jones of Sports Illustrated reports.
Webb has thrown only seven passes in an NFL game since 2011, with both completions coming last season with the Bills after he was forced to play quarterback in an overtime game against the Colts that featured heavy snowfall. While Webb is still considered a quarterback, he'll likely be used in different spots on the field when needed given his diverse skill set and athleticism.
Webb (ankle) is active for Sunday's wild-card game against the Jaguars, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Webb dealt with an ankle injury throughout the week, leading to his questionable tag entering Sunday's game. Though he's active, he's unlikely to see any game action unless both Tyrod Taylor and Nathan Peterman were to go down with injury.
Webb (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Webb was a limited participant in practice all week due to an undisclosed ankle injury. However, as the Bills' No. 3 signal caller, his potential absence isn't a pressing concern.
Webb will serve as the backup to Tyrod Taylor (knee) in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Webb was the backup during the Bills' snow-filled overtime win over the Colts a week earlier, though he served as the understudy to Nathan Peterman for that contest after Taylor was ruled out. Peterman exited early with a concussion in the victory, pressing Webb into regular-season action at quarterback for the first time since 2011. Peterman remains in the concussion protocol and won't play this week, but once both he and Taylor are healthy again, Webb will fade back to the No. 3 role.
Webb went 2-for-6 for 35 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 13-7 overtime win over the Colts. He also rushed five times for 27 yards.
Webb was forced into duty after Nathan Peterman, who had drawn the Week 14 start in place of Tyrod Taylor (knee), was forced from the contest with a head injury. The versatile veteran unsurprisingly saw his pass attempts kept to a minimum, as the game was played in a persistent blizzard and the Bills had little trouble making significant gains in the running game throughout the afternoon. With Buffalo's top two signal callers now injured, it remains to be seen if Webb will be called upon to helm the offense in a Week 15 divisional clash against the Dolphins. However, given that Taylor will have another week to recover, it's also quite conceivable that he could be healthy enough to suit up by the time next Sunday rolls around.
Webb rushed three times for 27 yards and threw an incomplete pass in Buffalo's 23-3 loss to New England on Sunday as the Bills sprinkled in some wildcat looks into their struggling offense.
The pass surprised the Patriots, and if Webb didn't overthrow Travaris Cadet, it would have been one of the more creative touchdowns of the weekend. While it's pretty impossible to use Webb to gain a fantasy edge, the development could at least open up the Buffalo offense a bit if the Bills start using the wildcat look until someone shuts it down. The Patriots, who have been fantastic defensively lately, notably had difficulty defending it.
Webb was signed Monday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The new Buffalo brass came over from Carolina and it has familiarity with Webb, who was just released by the Panthers over the weekend. Him staying is no sure thing, as the Bills have two quarterbacks -- Tyrod Taylor and T.J. Yates -- who will eventually return from concussions. The Bills could decide to keep Webb over Yates as the third QB, hower.
Webb was released by the Panthers on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
Webb's only realistic route to the final roster would have been if the team opted to carry three quarterbacks into the regular season, However, Cam Newton is seemingly back to full health, so the team has decided to go with two. Webb will either land on the team's practice squad or be left looking for a new opportunity.
Webb (neck) returned to practice Sunday, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Webb was forced to miss the team's preseason game Thursday due to the neck injury, but following his return to practice, it seems that he's ready to resume his role as the team's third-string quarterback.
Webb was held out of Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars due to a neck strain, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.
Webb's absence led to Derek Anderson and Garrett Gilbert seeing most of the snaps in Thursday's win over Jacksonville. Whether or not Webb's neck strain will keep him out of the preseason finale has yet to be determined, but it appears he has a decent hold on the Panthers' No.3 quarterback spot provided the club opts to carry three quarterbacks on the active roster.
Webb completed seven of 14 passes for 128 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Wednesday's preseason opener against the Texans. He also rushed three times for 21 yards.
Webb acquitted himself well after replacing backup Derek Anderson early in Wednesday's contest. The Panthers' third-stringer tossed a 50-yard touchdown during the second quarter, then followed that with an eight-yard score after halftime. Although Webb also threw a pick, his overall performance was certainly encouraging.
Webb completed all five of his pass attempts for 60 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.
Although Cam Newton and Derek Anderson are locked in as the No. 1 and 2 signal-calkers, Webb should find his way onto the final roster for a third straight season, as he's the league's only third-string quarterback who also has a key role on special teams. However, his two-year contract is right around the veteran's minimum, which suggests he isn't quite a lock to make the team.
Webb has signed a two-year contract to remain with the Panthers.
Webb has spent the past two seasons as the Panthers' third-string quarterback, but given his unique athleticism, he's also featured on special teams and at wide receiver. A versatile, team-oriented player, Webb figures to continue in such roles going forward.
