Texans' Brandon Weeden: Shines in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden completed nine of 11 passes for 97 yards and two touchdown passes in Houston's win over Kansas City in Thursday's preseason opener.

Weeden was sharp for the two drives he had, both of which ended in touchdowns to rookie tight end Jordan Akins. He spread the ball around, targeting six different receivers on his first drive. Weeden has cemented his role as Deshaun Watson's backup.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Securing backup job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden has had a good training camp and appears to be the primary backup to starting quarterback Deshaun Watson, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Weeden has met expectations on the field during training camp, but in an ideal Texans world, his main contribution will come as an experienced hand behind Watson. "Weed is a good voice in the room," Texans quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan said. "He has experience, he's very helpful with Deshaun. He's gone out, he's done what we asked him. He has natural arm talent, he knows the offense, which helps to kind of get plugged in and really function with the offense." Weeden spent time with the Texans during each of the last three seasons, so his knowledge of the offense gives him a leg up on Joe Webb and Stephen Morris, the other quarterbacks in camp.

Brandon Weeden: Joining Texans again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden is signing with the Texans, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Weeden spent part of 2015 and all of 2016 with the Texans, but he was released at the end of the preseason last year. He later caught on with the Titans as their No. 3 quarterback, ultimately failing to take a snap for a second straight year. The 2012 first-round pick owns a 6-19 record as a starter, with a 57.9 completion percentage, 6.7 yards per attempt, 31 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. He'll compete with Taylor Heinecke for the backup job in Houston, though it's quite possible the team adds more help while Deshaun Watson recovers from a torn ACL.

Titans' Brandon Weeden: Held out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden (coach's decision) is inactive for the Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

The Titans' No. 3 quarterback, Weeden has dressed for just one game this season. He'll be inactive on future game days unless starter Marcus Mariota is nursing an injury heading into a given contest.

Titans' Brandon Weeden: Signs with Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden signed a one-year contract with the Titans on Tuesday, Conor Orr of reports.

Even with Marcus Mariota (hamstring) considered day-to-day after avoiding a serious injury in Sunday's loss to Houston, the Titans will still add insurance at the quarterback position in Weeden. The 33-year-old was most recently released by the Texans prior to the start of the regular season and will likely serve as Matt Cassel's backup this weekend in Miami should Mariota be ruled out.

Brandon Weeden: Released by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans decided to release Weeden on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Weeden's only realistic route to the Texans' final roster was if they chose to carry three quarterbacks into the regular season. However, the team appears confident enough in projected starter Tom Savage and rookie Deshaun Watson to just go with two options under center.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Will serve as backup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden will back up quarterback Brock Osweiler for Saturday's wild-card playoff game against Oakland.

The Texans have declared Tom Savage out for the playoff game, so Weeden becomes active for just the third time this season. No knock on Weeden, but Osweiler would have to be hurt or play awfully for Houston coach Bill O'Brien to make a switch.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Inactive for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden is a healthy inactive for Sunday's Week 1 tilt with the Bears, the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports.

Weeden's inactive status essentially confirms that he'll open the season as the Texans' third-string quarterback behind Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage. Unless Osweiler succumbs to an injury at some point this season, Weeden isn't expected to don a uniform on game days.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Third quarterback in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden was the third quarterback to enter Houston's preseason opener against San Francisco on Sunday. He played the final five minutes, missing his only attempt in Houston's 24-13 win.

Tom Savage entered after starter Brock Osweiler was removed and stayed in the game well into the fourth quarter. It could be the intent was to give Savage, who missed the entire 2015 season, a longer look. We'll see if the same quarterback pattern holds in preseason Week 2.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Re-signs with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden has re-signed with the Texans, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Weeden played for both the Cowboys and Texans last season, passing for 305 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in two appearances for Houston, where he'll remain this season. Although he's destined for a backup position, Weeden's signing serves as another indication that the Texans will part ways with fellow quarterback Brian Hoyer this offseason.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Back to reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the Texans announcing that Brian Hoyer will start Week 17 against the Jaguars, Weeden will head back to a reserve role.

Weeden had filled in well for Hoyer, leading the Texans to two straight wins and putting them in place to clinch the AFC South with a win over Jacksonville.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Scores with legs in rout of Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden completed 15-of-24 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns, and added 11 yards and a rushing score on two carries in Sunday's 34-6 victory over the Titans.

Weeden showed excellent composure in leading the Texans to a 34-0 lead through three quarters, even contributing with his legs on a seven-yard scramble into the end zone for his first career rushing touchdown. Houston will have a chance to clinch the division in next week's season finale against a porous Jaguars defense, so expect the team's fourth starting quarterback of the season to pull no punches in trying to lead his squad to its first playoff berth since 2012.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden is starting Sunday against the Titans.

With Brian Hoyer out while he continues to recover from a concussion, Weeden will be under center with the Texans just one win away from winning the AFC South. While he'll have star wideout DeAndre Hopkins to throw passes to, Weeden remains a fairly weak fantasy option, even against a Titans defense that is far from elite.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden will start Sunday's game against the Titans, Ian Rapoport of reports.

Brian Hoyer failed to be cleared by the league's concussion protocol, so Weeden will step in after coming on in relief of T.J. Yates during last week's win over the Colts. In that contest, Weeden completed 11-of-18 passes for 105 yards and one touchdown. While he remains a bottom-tier fantasy option at quarterback this week, he'll face a Tennessee defense that's allowing 25.9 points per game on the season, good for 24th in the league. With Hoyer unavailable, B.J. Daniels is expected to serve as Weeden's backup.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: To get the start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden is on track to get the start Sunday against Tennessee, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With Brian Hoyer still going through the league's concussion protocol, it looks like Weeden is in line to get the nod for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Titans. Weeden came on in relief of the injured T.J Yates in Week 15 and helped lead the Texans to a critical win over Indianapolis, completing 11-of-18 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown. He'll be facing a middling Titans pass defense on the road Sunday.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Prepping to start Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden is expected to play his second consecutive game as Brian Hoyer is questionable and remains under the NFL's concussion protocol, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Weeden has prepped all week as the starter and with Hoyer still in the concussion protocol this late in the practice week, it's highly probable Weeden will be starting against the Titans this week. If Hoyer is unavailable to play, the recently signed B.J. Daniels will be the Texans backup quarterback.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Takes practice reps with first team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden took reps with the first-team offense during Wednesday's practice, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Even though Brian Hoyer was a limited participant Wednesday, he remains under the NFL's concussion protocol and lined up with the scout team. The Texans are preparing for Weeden to start, but Hoyer could be cleared before Sunday. If Hoyer is not cleared, Weeden will start and the recently signed B.J. Daniels will be the backup.

Texans' Brandon Weeden: Leads Texans to victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden came on for the injured T.J. Yates (knee) and completed 11 of 18 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 16-10 win over the Colts.

The Texans' quarterback situation is a mess right now, as Yates was only getting the start because Brian Hoyer suffered two concussions in the last month. Yates is believed to have suffered a torn ACL, which could mean Weeden will be the starter in Week 16 against the Titans, as the Texans need just one win to clinch the AFC South.

November 18, 2015 06:27 PM
Texans' Brandon Weeden: Claimed by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans have claimed Weeden on waivers from the Cowboys, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Per the report, the move would appear to signal that Brian Hoyer (concussion) could be out this Sunday against the Jets, and in such a scenario, Weeden would bolster the Texans' QB depth behind T.J. Yates.

Brandon Weeden: Released by Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weeden was released by the Cowboys on Tuesday.

Weeden was removed from the roster to open up a spot for Tony Romo, who is on track to return to action Sunday against the Dolphins after recovering from a broken collarbone. Weeden put up better numbers than fellow quarterback Matt Cassel in their stints as Romo's fill-in, but the Cowboys are apparently more comfortable with Cassel, and will stick with him as Romo's backup. It remains to be seen what Weeden's next move will be, but he will likely fill a reserve role wherever he ends up.
