Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett neck-and-neck in Texans QB derby


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2015) The notion that one of the candidates for the starting quarterback job with the Texans would play himself out of the running this early has turned out to be a little far-fetched.

Both Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett have impressed Bill O'Brien, who is now hedging on his earlier claim that he might name a starter soon. He might be forced to wait beyond the beginning of training camp.

"These two guys are competing really well; they're very bright guys," O'Brien told the team website. "I think they've both had really good springs. ... [The starter] might be named next week. He might be named after the Redskins three days of practice. It might be after the San Francisco preseason game."

Without pads or contact drills, the evaluation process at quarterback is more difficult. O'Brien must rely on other qualities, such as grasping concepts at meetings, practice performance, leadership qualities, picking up the offense and decision-making. So far, it appears to be a dead-heat.

"I don't think there's a situation here where one guy has just been that much better on any given day than the other guy," O'Brien said. "They both practice very well. These guys command at the line of scrimmage. Both these guys know how to run an offensive huddle in pro football. They're leaders, so I think it's helped our team."


Texans may decide starting quarterback before training camp


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2015) With Texans quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett competing for the starting role, coach Bill O'Brien said Thursday he may decide on his starting quarterback before training camp begins, reports NFL.com.

"That decision may be made before training camp," O'Brien said. "They're out here competing [in OTAs and at mandatory minicamp] every single day, and it's pretty intense. So, we may pick a guy very soon. And if we don't, and the decision does go into training camp, it'll be made pretty early on. The team needs to know who the guy is, and we need to go forward."


Tempo will determine Ryan Mallett, Brian Hoyer QB battle for Texans


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2015) The Texans quarterback battle will come down to more than who puts up better numbers in the preseason. Coach Bill O'Brien is looking at the big picture when it comes to Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer

"I really think it’s important for these guys to be able to operate the offense at a high tempo,” O’Brien said, per HoustonTexans.com. “We have a lot of different types of tempo, but to be in and out of the huddle or when it’s no huddle, changing the pace of practice and handling that on their own. Being able to communicate the play, get people lined up, change the cadence, get us into the right play and then complete the pass."


Texans in no hurry to name starting QB


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/1/2015) Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday there was "no timetable" for the team to name a starting quarterback, as Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer battle for the No. 1 spot, per the Houston Chronicle

The pair have been splitting first-team reps during OTAs and neither has emerged enough for O'Brien to make a definitive call. Mallett threw for 400 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions before suffering a torn pectoral muscle, while Hoyer started strong last season with the Browns but faded, finishing with 3,326 yards, 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.


Texans' Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett splitting first-team reps


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) As expected, Texans quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett split reps with the first-team during Wednesday's OTA practice, according to the Houston Chronicle

Hoyer is no stranger to competing for a starting job after going through the process in Cleveland against Johnny Manziel a year ago. 

“I’ve been through it before,” Hoyer said. “I’m not going to let it affect me and I’ll just be myself and really focus on the things that I can control.”

Hoyer, behind an offensive line that struggled following Alex Mack's season-ending injury, finished 2014 with 3,326 yards, 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Mallett, who suffered a season-ending torn pectoral, appeared in three games for Houston and threw for 400 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. 


Texans QB Ryan Mallett: I'm ready to go


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett finally got his chance to start in the league last season. Unfortunately, his starting opportunity was cut short after three games when he tore a pectoral muscle. Mallet said on Monday he's finally back to healthy after rehabbing the injury, according to ESPN.com.

"I'm ready to go," Mallet replied. "I'm still getting better every day. I don't feel any restrictions. It's about me. It's about managing and being smart with my body. Just doing the right thing as we progress. I need to play in August, September, and those months. Not April right now, you know?"

Mallet is expected to split first team reps with newcomer Brian Hoyer in OTAs at quarterback.


Texans' Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett to split reps at QB during OTAs


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Texans quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett are expected to split first-team reps under center during offseason team activities this summer, according to the team's website.

"It's not new -- for me, it's kind of just getting back on the bike," Hoyer said Monday. "You learn to ride a bike and whether you don't ride it for a year or two, you can pick it up pretty quickly. There's some adjustments, especially with (George) Godsey being the offensive coordinator. It's been a great three weeks so far of getting re-acclimated and learning the nuances that he's kind of put his own spin on."

Hoyer threw for 3,326 yards with 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2014 with the Browns.

"For me, I'm kind of re-acclimating myself, so we're all kind of learning together," Hoyer said. "We've put a lot of extra work in after our workouts, whether it's going in the film room and looking at formations or going over concepts. I think that's really helped me and it's helped those guys, too. Especially in this offense, you're asked to do so much, so if you can do without thinking, it speeds up the process that much more."

Mallett threw for 400 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in three games for Houston before suffering a season-ending pectoral injury.


O'Brien happy with current QB situation with Texans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Bill O'Brien expressed disdain for a question Thursday night inferring that the Texans are still seeking their franchise quarterback.

"You know, 'until we find our quarterback' like I just want to make sure that just personally I'm clear on that," he said via ESPN. "We feel really good about our quarterback position. To be honest with you, I'm a little tired of hearing that."

The thought of the Texans addressing the situation in the first round seems a bit far-fetched when considering that premier talents Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota were gone after two picks and no other top candidates were thought of that highly.

Houston is set to wage a competition between Ryan Mallett and free agent signing Brian Hoyer for the starting job. O'Brien is not complaining about that.

"These guys are in here competing," he said. "They're learning. They're doing a good job so far in the offseason workouts. We can't wait to get out there and start working with them."


Brian Hoyer signing with Texans for two years, $10 million


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/11/2015) Former Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer will sign a two-year, $10 million deal with the Texans on Wednesday, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Hoyer will receive $4.75 million guaranteed, La Canfora said.

Hoyer will compete with Ryan Mallett to be Houston's starter. Hoyer, 29, completed 55.3 percent of his passes for 3,326 yards and 12 touchdowns with 13 interceptions in 14 games with Cleveland last season.

Report: Texans release QB Thad Lewis


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/9/2015) The Texans released quarterback Thad Lewis, who did not play last season, reports ESPN.com. Houston has re-signed quarterback Ryan Mallett and is expected to sign quarterback Brian Hoyer on Tuesday.

Report: Jets to pursue QB Ryan Fitzpatrick if available


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/9/2015) With quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick looking like the odd man out in Houston, he will "jump to the top of the Jets' list after he's inevitably released," reports the New York Daily News. Fitzpatrick, 32, played for Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey in Buffalo.

Houston would clear $3.2 million in cap space by cutting Fitzpatrick. The Texans have re-signed quarterback Ryan Mallett and are said to be on the verge of signing quarterback Brian Hoyer, making Fitzpatrick expendable.


Report: Texans bring back QB Ryan Mallett


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/9/2015) The Texans re-signed quarterback Ryan Mallett to a two-year, $7 million deal, reports the Houston Chronicle. Mallett is expected to compete with Brian Hoyer, who is set to sign with Houston on Tuesday, the paper said.

The signings make quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick expendable. Releasing Fitzpatrick would free up $3.2 million in cap space, the paper noted.

Mallett threw for 400 yards in three games last season, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Both Mallett and Hoyer played for Texans coach Bill O'Brien when he was an offensive assistant with the Patriots.


Report: Texans nearing deal with Ryan Mallett, also want Brian Hoyer


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) The Texans are nearing a deal with quarterback Ryan Mallett, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle

The Texans traded for Mallett before the start of the 2014 season with the former Arkansas standout entering the final year of his rookie deal. He only appeared in three games this past season due to a right pectoral injury that sidelined him the remainder of the year. 

In addition to Mallett, the Texans are also interested in signing free agent quarterback Brian Hoyer. Texans coach Bill O'Brien coached both Mallett and Hoyer when he was the offensive coordinator with the Patriots. 


Texans QB Ryan Mallett still recovering from torn pectoral muscle


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) A torn pectoral muscle ended Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett's season early in 2014, shortly after he assumed the starting role. 

A few months into recovery, Mallett still isn't 100 percent, he said at a charity event on Wednesday, according to the Houston Chronicle.  

"I'm getting close," Mallett said. "There's no magic potion. I'm trying to get better every day. We'll see how it goes."

The Texans have been talked about as a team that needs to upgrade at the quarterback position this offseason. However, coach Bill O'Brien wants Mallett back in the fold as an option to start in 2015. Mallett is going to hit free agency when the new league year begins if he is not re-signed by Houston before then. 


Texans GM Smith: 'We're hopeful we get free agent Ryan Mallett back'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Texans general manager Rick Smith said during his combine presser on Thursday that the team must get free agent Ryan Mallett under contract before they begin evaluating the quarterback position.

"We're hopeful we get him back," Smith said.

Smith noted that it's “apparent he picked up several leadership traits that were impressive” playing behind Tom Brady in New England, per the Boston Globe.

Texans acquired Ryan Mallett from the Patriots for a 2015 sixth-round pick back before the start of the 2014 season. Mallett had his season cut short after he suffered a torn pectoral muscle in November. He completed 41 of 75 passes for 400 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in two starts.


Texans to decide between Thad Lewis, Case Keenum to start Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) The Texans announced that Tom Savage will miss Week 16 against the Ravens due to a knee injury he suffered on the penultimate play of Sunday's loss against the Colts. The loss of Savage, Ryan Fitzpatrick (broken tibia) and Ryan Mallett (pectoral) means that the starting job will come down to Thad Lewis and newly-signed Case Keenum, coach Bill O'Brien told reporters, per the team's official website.

Lewis was signed to the 53-man active roster on Nov. 26, when Mallett landed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. He was the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart entering Sunday's game against Indianapolis before Fitzpatrick went down with a season-ending injury. Second-stringer Tom Savage took over for Fitzpatrick but hurt his knee late in the game. As a result, the team signed Case Keenum on Sunday night, who played eight games in 2013 with the Texans and is familiar with the offensive.

"He'd been in our system not long ago," O'Brien said of Keenum, per the Houston Chronicle. "A lot of the things we're doing are what we were doing. He's a bright guy."


Texans place QB Ryan Mallett on IR


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) A torn right pectoral muscle has landed Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett on IR. The move confirms reports that he would be out for the year after sustaining the injury Sunday against Cincinnati.

Mallett finishes the year having completed 41 of 75 passes for 400 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in two starts. He did not throw a pass in any other game.


O'Brien: Mallett still being evaluated, won't name QB for Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday quarterback Ryan Mallett is still being evaluated and would not confirm the report Mallett is expected to miss the rest of the season with a torn right pectoral, according to The Houston Chronicle.

O'Brien said he will have "more to report" on Mallett's status later in the week. O'Brien would not name a starting quarterback for Week 13 against the Titans. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Savage are the two other quarterbacks on the roster.

"I'm trying to get ready for Tennessee," O'Brien said. "Whether (Mallett is) there or not, the next guy's gonna step up, whoever it is."


Report: Texans' Ryan Mallett out for season with pectoral injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett has been declared out for the season following a torn pectoral muscle he suffered Sunday against the Bengals, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Mallett sustained the injury during the game, but was able to play through it. In two starts for the Texans, Mallett completed 41 of his 75 pass attempts for 400 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

With Mallett out, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to receive his 10th start of the season in Week 13 against Tennessee.


Texans' Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to replace injured Ryan Mallett


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) With reports surfacing that Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett suffered a torn pectoral muscle Sunday against the Bengals, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick could be in line to receive his 10th start of the season Week 13.

In nine starts, Fitzpatrick has thrown 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions, but was benched in favor of Mallett after Week 9.


Report: Texans QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) set for MRI Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett played with a right pectoral injury in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Mallett will undergo an MRI Monday and could end up missing several weeks while recovering from the injury. If he winds up missing Week 13, Ryan Fitzpatrick would likely take over under center.


Ryan Mallett flops in second start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett struggled badly in his second start in Week 12, a 22-13 loss to the Bengals.

Mallett, who had two touchdowns in a win a week ago, fell apart in Sunday's game, tossing one interception without finding the end zone. He completed fewer than half of his 45 passes as well, while racking up just 189 yards in the game.

Mallett looked competent in his first career start last week, but couldn't get anything going this week. With bye weeks done, Fantasy owners should have little reason to look his way in Week 13 against the Titans.  


Ryan Mallett unable to lead Texans to second straight win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) A week after leading Houston to a surprising win at Cleveland in his first career start, quarterback Ryan Mallett couldn't lead the Texans to a second straight win Week 12.

He completed 21 of 45 passes for 189 yards, no touchdowns and one interception, while rushing for 2 yards on one carry during a 22-13 loss Week 12 vs. Cincinnati.

Mallett struggled to get the football to star receiver Andre Johnson, who caught three passes for 36 yards despite a team-high 12 targets. While Mallett completed 9 of 15 passes in the first half, he had just 66 passing yards.

The Texans are back in action Week 13 vs. Tennessee.


Texans list lengthy injury report for Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) The Texans released a lengthy injury report that included 16 players leading up to Week 12 against Cincinnati. 13 of the 16 players on the list were deemed probable.

Kareem Jackson (knee) was the only player ruled out, while Arian Foster (groin) and Max Bullough (hamstring) were deemed questionable.

The following players were ruled as probable for Sunday: Tyson Clabo (foot), Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee), Akeem Dent (neck), Jonathan Grimes (ankle), Andre Johnson (rest), Johnathan Joseph (knee), Ryan Mallett (chest), Whitney Mercilus (knee), Mike Mohamed (hip), Darryl Morris (ankle), Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and Justin Tuggle (shoulder).


Fantasy stardom probably not in Ryan Mallett's future


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett looked more than competent in his first NFL start Sunday, a 23-7 win over the Browns in Week 11.

The Texans tried to limit Mallett's exposure, but he still ended up throwing the ball 30 times, as the team logged 84 offensive snaps. He completed 20 of those passes for 211 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while tossing one interception in the game.

Mallett has plenty of weapons, so the Texans would be wise to limit how much he actually has to do in any given game. He showed a solid rapport with both DeAndre Hopkins and Andre Johnson, and found the end zone twice with the team in the red zone. He was solid enough Sunday, but also faced little pressure from a Browns offense that managed to pose little threat.

Mallett showed enough to make you think he might be a starting quarterback in the NFL, but not so much that he looks like an impact Fantasy player. With just two teams left to go on bye, there might not be any reason to rely on Mallett down the stretch, unless he really improves moving forward.
