Darrelle Revis is coming off perhaps the worst game of his career. He might have to wait a week to get some redemption.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Monday that Revis "wasn't feeling any better" on Monday, one day after suffering a concussion in the New York's 24-17 loss to the Houston Texans. The All-Pro cornerback could be facing a race against the clock with the Jets preparing for a Week 12 matchup against the Miami Dolphins.

Brian Hoyer clears protocol, set to start Week 12

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer is out of the NFL concussion testing protocol and set to start Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Hoyer passed the mandatory baseline neurological exam Monday and will practice Wednesday, according to Texans coach Bill O’Brien.

Fantasy Impact:

Hoyer was replaced in the starting lineup Sunday by backup T.J. Yates. He suffered the concussion against the Cincinnati Bengals and experienced memory loss. Houston will host the Saints in a very favorable home matchup.

Jets will stick with Ryan Fitzpatrick

The Jets are in the midst of a season-threatening slump, but Todd Bowles isn't ready to make a change at the quarterback position.

The coach announced Monday that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain behind center when the 5-5 Jets host the 4-6 Dolphins on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Bowles inadvertently started speculation of a QB switch when he appeared to duck a question about Fitzpatrick's status shortly after the veteran threw two fourth-quarter interceptions in a damaging 24-17 loss to the Texans.

After Bowles made his announcement on Monday, a reporter asked if Fitzpatrick would be on a short leash against the Dolphins.

"He's our starting QB," Bowles replied.

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzpatrick wasn't helped by his receivers on Sunday -- Brandon Marshall and Devin Smith each had crippling drops on deep balls -- but the veteran's recent struggles have mirrored the slump of a Jets team that started the season at 4-1. Fitzpatrick was also checked for a concussion and did pass those tests during the game, but returned to throw the INTs.

Arian Foster has no doubt he'll play football again.

The Houston Texans running back is recovering from surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon on his right leg. The 29-year-old has heard the speculation that such an injury might be a career-ender for a running back his age, but he's unfazed.

"Yeah I'll play again," he told The Associated Press. "I'm not the first one to come back from an Achilles tendon (injury)."

Fantasy Impact:

Foster has had a tough year, missing the first three games of the season after tearing a groin muscle in training camp. He returned on Oct. 4, but played just four games before his season ended on the non-contact injury to his Achilles tendon.

Ryan Fitzpatrick passed concussion test

Monday, November 23, 2015, 9:38am

Ryan Fitzpatrick looked a bit woozy immediately after his quarterback sneak for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of the Jets' 24-17 loss at the Texans on Sunday.

Fitzpatrick, the Jets' quarterback who is already playing with a thumb injury, had his helmet knocked off by a hit from Texans safety Eddie Pleasant just before he crossed the goal line.

And even though Fitzpatrick appeared to have a glazed look in his eyes just after the touchdown sneak happened, he said he passed his independent concussion evaluation on the sideline and was cleared to keep playing.

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzpatrick kept playing, and he threw two interceptions in the final three minute.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (left thumb, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 11. Fitzpatrick will start in Week 11. On paper, it’s a solid matchup against the Texans, though Houston has limited Andy Dalton and Zach Mettenberger to 368 combined passing yards and two interceptions in the last two games. Back in Week 7, they yielded 282 yards and four touchdowns to Ryan Tannehill.
