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.

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham saw his late-season progress hit a roadblock during Sunday's 34-6 loss to the Houston Texans.

Green-Bekham, who had more than 100 yards receiving in two of the three games prior, was held without a catch on three targets.

Tennessee interim head coach Mike Mularkey attributed Green-Beckham's ineffectiveness to a combination of Houston's defensive tactics along with rookie mistakes.

Via Tennessee's official website:

“Some of it was the coverage,” Mularkey said. “They were playing a coverage that you could roll a corner and a safety over the top on him.

“Some of that was Dorial with some of the mistake he made. He had a number of mistakes on splits and depths and things that he’s had, again, that a young receiver is going to have, Tre McBride included. But some of that is self-inflicted that we need to get better at."

Fantasy Impact:

Green-Beckham caught six passes for 113 yards in the Week 15 loss to the New England Patriots. He caught five passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's Week 13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. DGB struggled much of the season with his patterns and it sometimes led to turnovers, but as of late it seemed like he was turning the corner. In his defense, there were a lot of no-shows on the Titans in Week 16 and he'll certainly have some fantasy value heading into 2016 with a healthy Marcus Mariota under center.

Brian Hoyer expected to start

Houston quarterback Brian Hoyer is in the last phase of the NFL's concussion protocol and will start Sunday against Jacksonville if he is cleared to play.

Hoyer missed the last two games after suffering his second concussion in less than a month on Dec. 13.

"He has progressed well through the protocol and he's basically in the last phase of that evaluation, and so I'll know more on Wednesday," coach Bill O'Brien said.

Fantasy Impact:

T.J. Yates started the first game Hoyer missed, but tore the ACL in his left knee in the second quarter. He was replaced by Brandon Weeden, who helped Houston to a win over Indianapolis in that game and led the Texans to a victory against Tennessee on Sunday. Despite his solid play the last two weeks, O'Brien said Weeden will likely head back to the bench this weekend, the story.

Texans QB B.J. Daniels (chest, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 16.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

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.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Texans RB Alfred Blue (back, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 16. Blue carried the ball 20 times for 107 yards last week, so it appears that he’s back atop the Texans’ depth chart.

Texans RB Chris Polk (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 16.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Colts WR Donte Moncrief (toe, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 16. HC Chuck Pagano indicates that Moncrief will be a game-time decision for Week 16. He played through the injury last week and posted 5-51-1 on seven targets against the Texans.
