Brian Hoyer’s status after Sunday night’s 27-6 loss to New England is still uncertain.
Hoyer exited the game late in the fourth quarter and headed to the locker room to be evaluated for a possible concussion. The Texans starting quarterback was sacked on fourth-and-3 with 9:54 left in the game. Head coach Bill O’Brien did not confirm after the game whether or not Hoyer had suffered a concussion on the play.
“I don’t know yet,” head coach Bill O’Brien said after the game. “I’m not sure. It looked that way, but I’m not sure.”
After Hoyer’s injury, TJ Yates entered the game for just one series in the loss, finishing 1-of-2 for four yards. Hoyer also suffered a concussion on Nov. 16 at Cincinnati and was inactive the following week against the Jets as Yates got the start.
