There isn’t a quarterback projected to be worthy of a pick like the Texans will have in the first round if they don't trade down, so there’s a chance Davis Mills will be competing to start in 2022. If he is given the chance to start again this season, it seems unlikely things turn around given the personnel surrounding him.
The Texans are projected to have a top-five pick in the 2022 draft. Taylor wasn't good against the Colts before getting hurt in Week 13 with a wrist injury. The Texans would be better off giving Mills starts to finish the season to see if he has any chance to be the future at the position.
Texans QB Tyrod Taylor is considered week-to-week with his wrist injury, sources say, and Davis Mills is expected to start.
Mills will get another chance to show what he can do for the Texans, who don't seem to have any kind of future plan for the QB position. Taylor isn't the long-term answer and Deshaun Watson wants to be traded. The last time we saw Mills was against the Rams, when he threw for over 300 yards and 2 TDs in a loss, but then lost his job to Taylor.
Taylor was cleared to return to the game but was replaced by Mills in the third quarter. Culley said the team will continue to evaluate who will start against the Seahawks in Week 14. That decision will be made later in the week.
