Driskel closed out the game against Cleveland throwing for 155 yards and a TD as the Bengals tried to come from behind against the Browns. Dalton wasn't great this year, but his loss seems like a downgrade for the rest of the offense. Sitting at 5-6, but still in the hunt, one has to wonder if the team brings back Green with Dalton out, or if they still try to make a playoff push.
The tweet went on to say Beathard would be good if playing on Sunday. It's going to be a test for Thursday and the short week and the team probably won't know until then. Mullens and Savage are next up on the depth chart.
This isn't really a shock as the team indicated it was a possibility. Yates will take over the rest of the way at QB. Savage is a free agent and may not be back next year. We had a report today that Deshaun Watson's ACL rehab is going well and is clearly slated to be the starter, so the Texans may be in the market for a backup heading into 2018.
