Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) could miss four weeks

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor’s hamstring injury could keep him out for four weeks.

Taylor was injured in the second quarter of the Texans’ 31-21 loss at Cleveland, and he was replaced by rookie Davis Mills, who’ll start Thursday night’s game against Carolina at NRG Stadium.

Fantasy Impact: 

Depending on how quickly Taylor’s hamstring responds to treatment, sources familiar with his situation haven’t ruled out an earlier return, but the Texans have always been extra cautious with hamstring and groin injuries and aren’t expected to rush him back, the story went on to say. Mills will get the start and the team is expected to back him up with Driskel on a short week, Thursday night game. If he's still on the wire, Mills is worth adding in deeper leagues or superflex leagues but he's obviously not a confident start for fantasy owners.
