Texans' Tom Savage: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans have placed Savage (concussion) on IR.

As a result, T.J. Yates will continue to start at QB for the Texans for the team's final two games. Savage thus finishes the 2017 season with a 56.1 completion percentage and 1,412 passing yards to go along with five TDs and six picks over the course of eight appearances. Savage is eligible to become a free agent this offseason, but it's possible that the Texans will look to keep him around to provide depth behind franchise QB Deshaun Watson, who is bouncing back from a torn ACL that he suffered Nov. 2.

Texans' Tom Savage: Likely bound for IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans are expected to place Savage (concussion) on injured reserve this week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The development isn't particularly surprising given that Texans head coach Bill O'Brien admitted Monday that Savage wasn't likely to play again in 2017 after suffering a serious concussion in a Dec. 9 loss to the 49ers that briefly resulted in the quarterback's hands twitching uncontrollably. With Savage generally having failed to impress in his seven starts and finishing the campaign with a 5:6 TD:INT ratio and 56 percent completion mark, it seems unlikely that he'll draw interest from teams as anything more than a backup candidate when he becomes a free agent after the season.

Texans' Tom Savage: Likely done for 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (concussion), who is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, isn't expected to play again this season, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Though Savage has indicated that he's feeling better after suffering the head injury in a scary scene during the Texans' Week 14 loss to the 49ers and has a chance to pass all phases of the protocol before the final two games of the season, Houston seemingly has little to gain by having the quarterback suit up. The Texans drew criticism for the way they responded to Savage suffering the concussion last week, as he was briefly allowed to return to the contest before being pulled after throwing two incomplete passes. Since the NFL and NFLPA is continuing to review the Texans' handling of the matter and Savage is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason, the team will likely just allow the quarterback to recuperate and proceed with T.J. Yates as its new starting signal caller.

Texans' Tom Savage: Set to miss Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said after Wednesday's practice that Savage (concussion) wouldn't play Sunday against the Jaguars, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This isn't a surprising development after Savage was knocked out of the Week 14 loss to the 49ers, though he was briefly allowed to reenter the contest despite appearing the lose feeling in his hand when he suffered the concussion. The handling of that situation will be the subject of a joint investigation by the NFL and NFL Players' Association, but it shouldn't have any bearing on Savage's status. He'll be held to the normal standards of the NFL's concussion protocol, with O'Brien holding out hope that Savage might be ready to play Week 16 against the Steelers. T.J. Yates, who relieved Savage last week, will pick up the start in Jacksonville, with practice-squad quarterback Taylor Heinicke likely to earn a promotion to the 53-man roster and act as the backup.

Texans' Tom Savage: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.

It's looking highly unlikely that Savage will pass all phases of the concussion protocol before Sunday's game against the Jaguars after suffering a serious-looking head injury just three days ago. With that in mind, T.J. Yates is in line to draw the starting assignment in Jacksonville, according to ESPN.com.
