Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16. Shorts has been ruled out, so Nate Washington becomes a Sneaky Start. In the two games that Shorts missed earlier in the year, Washington posted 9-127-2 (against the Dolphins) and 4-74-1 (against the Titans). Jaelen Strong will also see more snaps.

Yates suffered the season-ending injury on a scramble on the final drive of the first half. Yates walked directly to the locker room under his own power after the injury, which came on a non-contact play.

Brandon Weeden replaced Yates to close out the half. The team signed Weeden after the Cowboys released him and he would be next in line to start.
