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.
It probably shouldn't come as a surprise the team won't turn to Watson given his off-field issues. Taylor is likely out and Mills wasn't impressive coming on in relief in Week 2. But it looks like the Texans will make Watson inactive yet again for Week 3, and look to give Mills the start.
Texans QB Tyrod Taylor has already been ruled out for Week 3 against the Panthers with a hamstring injury.
Being a Thursday game, this isn’t terribly surprising. Taylor will have an MRI Monday on his hamstring. Davis Mills will likely get the start on Thursday. He went 8/18 for 102 yards, one touchdown and an interception.
