Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Yes, the Texans are preparing for Saturday’s playoff game against the Raiders with Brock Osweiler as the staring quarterback. No, it won’t matter if Tom Savage clears the concussion protocol by then.

Coach Bill O’Brien made it clear on Tuesday that Osweiler is the starter for Saturday, period.

“I’m not going to speculate on when [Savage] might clear but yes he is in the concussion protocol,” O’Brien told reporters. “If he were to clear, then he would be the backup quarterback. If not, it’ll be Brandon Weeden.”

Fantasy Impact:

With Miller out, the Texans backfield will likely devolve into an ugly committee. Akeem Hunt had the most carries of the Houston backups last week, but Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes should also be involved.

Fantasy Impact:

Fuller is dealing with a knee but had a pretty good chance to play leading up to the game. He hasn't done a whole lot since Week 4 so he's a risky play and is active tonight.

Brandon Weeden has earned another shot in Houston after leading the Texans to a pair of key victories in the AFC South race last December.

The Texans re-signed Weeden, the team announced on Friday. The new deal is for $4 million over two years, NFL Media's Rand Getlin reported, via a source with direct knowledge of the contract.

Claimed off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys in mid-November, Weeden relieved an injured T.J. Yates in Week 15, tossing a touchdown to rookie Jaelen Strong to push the Texans past the Colts in a crucial battle for control of the division. A week later, he accounted for three touchdowns in a 34-6 rout over the Titans.

Jerry Jones has made no secret that the Dallas Cowboys need to address their quarterback position behind Tony Romo.

They will have a few months to determine how they want to go about it after Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel and Kellen Moore combined to go 1-11 in Romo’s absence.

But the owner and general manager liked what he saw from Moore, so much so that he believes Moore could be a viable No. 2 quarterback.

“His background and (offensive coordinator Scott Linehan’s) background with him and these games, I think he’s got the potential to be a winning (backup),” Jones said. “I think he can ultimately win games in the NFL.”

Moore completed 33-of-48 passes for 435 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday’s 34-23 loss to the Washington Redskins. In three games of action, Moore had four touchdowns and six interceptions.

The Dallas Cowboys have many needs for 2016, but owner and general manager Jerry Jones reiterated finding a quarterback is at the top of the list.

Backups Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel and Kellen Moore have combined to go 1-10 this season after starter Tony Romo suffered a broken left collarbone twice this season. Jones has acknowledged the front office handled the backup spot entering the season poorly.

“We’re going to try to all the ways – all ways – to come up with a way to get Tony a backup, while at the same time looking toward the future,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday. “Some people would say that’s dreaming. Everybody wants that, but we have a high draft pick, obviously. We're earned it, and we've got it. If we evaluate and get an opportunity to get a couple of players there, we got to look at it hard.”

Fantasy Impact:

Jones said he had a conversation with Romo about the future of the position on Saturday night in Buffalo. He has said he believes Romo, who turns 36 in April, has a 3-5 year window left at playing at a high level. The Cowboys have not drafted a quarterback since 2009 (Stephen McGee, fourth round) and have not selected a quarterback in the first round since Troy Aikman in 1989. They took Steve Walsh with a first-round pick in the 1989 compensatory draft as well.

Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion, ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 16. Hoyer is working his way back and may be able to return since the Texans are still in the playoff hunt. If he can’t play, Brandon Weeden would get the start.

The Dallas Cowboys waived quarterback Brandon Weeden on Tuesday with the possibility of Tony Romo's return this weekend after missing seven games with a broken collarbone.

Weeden went 0-3 filling in for Romo and Matt Cassel was 0-4. It's the longest slide by Dallas since the team lost seven straight while going 1-15 under Jimmy Johnson in 1989.

Fantasy Impact:

Romo is eligible to play again for Dallas (2-7), but it is not yet known if he will play Sunday at Miami (4-5). Coach Jason Garrett said Monday that the 35-year-old quarterback who's had broken ribs, two broken collarbones and three back injuries will practice this week.
