With backup quarterback Ryan Mallett on his way out of the door, the Texans have reached out to an old friend to be his replacement.

According to two sources, T.J. Yates, who will always be remembered as the quarterback of record when the Texans clinched their first playoff appearance and one their first playoff game, is coming back to Houston.

The team reached out to their former backup after Mallett missed the team charter to Miami on Saturday.

Scouting Report

Week 5 at Indianapolis
In the blowout loss to the Falcons last week, Ryan Mallett was very ineffective, throwing for just 150 yards on 27 attempts. He was benched for Brian Hoyer, who led the Texans to three meaningless touchdowns. Despite the poor outing, Mallett remains the starter and will be facing a Colts defense that is 23rd against the pass. Having Arian Foster back will help to keep the defense honest with the run game. While he doesn’t make for a strong fantasy play, Mallett is a serviceable option if your normal starter is out or on a bye week.
