Texans QB Brian Hoyer won’t play Sunday

The Houston Texans have been struggling to do much of anything this season. Luckily for them, the entire AFC South has been pretty pathetic this year as well and they are still in the lead for the division.

The team has a very important game on Sunday as they play against the Indianapolis Colts, but it looks like they will have to go a backup at quarterback. Head coach Bill O’Brien confirmed that Brian Hoyer would not play on Sunday while dealing with a concussion.

The Texans will go with T.J. Yates under center, who came in to replace Hoyer earlier this year. He looked efficient in a 24-17 win over the New York Jets in Week 11 as he threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns.

The Colts will also be without Andrew Luck, despite him participating in practice this week.
