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. 


Texans QB Ryan Mallett impressive in starting debut


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Texans new starting quarterback Ryan Mallett certainly took advantage of his first career start Sunday in Cleveland.

Mallett showed a powerful arm and deft touch in completing 20 of 30 for 211 yards and leading his team to a mild upset. Most impressive was the drive he engineered late in the first half that culminated in a 20-yard touchdown pass over the middle to tight end Garrett Graham, giving Houston a lead it never relinquished. Mallett had opened the scoring with a perfectly thrown 2-yarder to J.J. Watt along the sideline.

The fourth-year quarterback did a lot of handing off in the second half as the Texans buried the Browns on the ground. He hit on 10 of 14 for just 76 yards after intermission. Mallett and his team will stay in the AFC North next Sunday when they host Cincinnati.


Ryan Mallett in, Ryan Fitzpatrick out as Texans starting QB


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) Bill O'Brien has announced that Ryan Mallett has replaced struggling Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starting quarterback for the Texans.

Mallett is set to start in Week 11 against Cleveland, after the team comes off its bye. He has participated in just one game this season without throwing a pass.

O'Brien said via the Houston Chronicle that Mallett "certainly has a strong arm" and can throw the ball "as far as you want."


Texans QB Ryan Mallett clears the air about 'misconstrued' tweet


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Texans backup quarterback Ryan Mallett said Tuesday he is not lobbying to replace starter Ryan Fitzpatrick amid the team's struggles, per the Houston Chronicle.

"All I’m trying to do is be ready and get better," he said. "I always prepare like I’m the starter. I played behind Tom Brady (with New England). Obviously, I didn’t play much, but I prepared the same every week. I don’t expect anything less of myself."

Mallett had tweeted Sunday night following the Texans loss to the Eagles that he was ready to play: “I’m staying focused for when the time comes … seize the opportunity #justwaiting.” He then deleted the tweet and posted another one Monday: "Don’t misinterpret my last tweet. I’m not calling to be the starter. Frustrations of losing. I play my role. I am a team player first. Always."

"(The first tweet) kind of got misconstrued a little bit," Mallett said, suggesting that he was inspired to send out the original after watching Mark Sanchez step in for the injured Nick Foles and lead the Eagles to their victory over the Texans. "All I was saying is I’m ready. Just like Mark. If Mark wasn’t ready when Nick went down, it might not have gone that way for the Eagles."

Texans coach Bill O'Brien has said he will evaluate the quarterback position during the team's Week 10 bye.


Texans will evaluate quarterback position during bye


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien has opened the door for a potential change at quarterback following the team's fourth loss in five games Sunday against the Eagles. He said every position, including quarterback, will be evaluated during the team's Week 10 bye, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is at the center of the criticism amid Houston's recent struggles, which could prompt O'Brien to turn to backup quarterback Ryan Mallett.

"I don’t live in a hypothetical world," Fitzpatrick said.

Although, left tackle Duane Brown feels it's not fair for Fitzpatrick to shoulder all of the blame.

"He’s been playing well," Brown said. "We haven’t made it easy for him at all. It’s tough to make throws when you have guys in your face. They brought some good blitzes. Our job is to try to protect him the best as we can.

"Our offense is built around our running game. When we run consistently it elevates his play and gives us our best chance to win. This game of football’s a total team effort. You can pinpoint one player and criticize him too much. I don’t think he deserves as much harsh criticism as he’s getting."


Texans backing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for now


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien is still backing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick following Monday's loss at Pittsburgh that dropped the team to 3-4.

“Fitzy is our quarterback,” O'Brien said Tuesday, per The Houston Chronicle.

However, for the first time since Ryan Mallett joined the team just before the start of the regular season, O'Brien linked both of the quarterbacks leading up to Week 8 at Tennessee.

"We’re going to continue to work with both of these guys in practice, and we’ll see how it improves," O’Brien said. "And hopefully, it will get better and better, and that will help our offense get better."

The Texans have lost three straight games. Still, O'Brien isn't about to pin all the struggles on Fitzpatrick.

"When you look at our tape … you cannot just point to one position and say that’s the position that is at fault," O’Brien said. "There are a lot of positions that need to play better. We need to coach better, all those different things. It all goes into why sometimes we stall offensively. It’s not one guy."


Report: EJ Manuel, Ryan Fitzpatrick already on hot seat


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Bills quarterback EJ Manuel and Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick are already on the hot seat, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The Bills and Texans won't be hesitant to turn to their backup quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Ryan Mallett, if Manuel and Fitzpatrick struggle.

Report: Ryan Mallett traded to Texans


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) The Patriots traded quarterback Ryan Mallett to the Texans, reports NFL Network. The move reunites Mallett with former New England offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien and leaves rookie Jimmy Garoppolo as Tom Brady's backup.

New England discussed a Mallett trade with the Bills and Cowboys before ultimately sending him to Houston, according to the Boston Herald.


Jason LaCanfora: Several notable veterans could be released


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) The release of Bengals former featured back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is not the only significant move that will be made by NFL teams involving veterans, per CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

La Canfora is speculating that the Browns could part with Nate Burleson and that the Jets might let go of fellow wide receiver Stephen Hill. The former has been limited by injury in the preseason while the latter has proven disappointing throughout his young career.

Also on the bubble, according to La Canfora, is Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett, though he is likely to stay because of the team's possible decision to keep three players at that position.


Jimmy Garoppolo leaps over Ryan Mallett in second preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo leaped over Ryan Mallett in the depth chart and was used as the first backup during Friday's preseason game against the Eagles.

Garoppolo entered the game for Tom Brady on the third drive of the game and fired a 15-yard touchdown pass to James Develin. On the ensuing drive, he hooked up with Brandon LaFell for a 4-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter. He completed 6 of 12 pass attempts for 72 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He finished with a 108.3 quarterback rating.

Mallett started the third quarter in place of Garoppolo and scored on a 6-yard run in his first drive. He then fired a 17-yard touchdown to Brian Tyms, who leaped over the defender to make the grab. He completed 7 of 11 pass attempts for 92 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. He was sacked once and had four rushes for 9 yards.

Ryan Mallett sits out again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett missed practice for the second straight day Monday with what is believed to be a knee injury, reports the Boston Herald.

Ryan Mallett disappoints in potential trade showcase


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Thursday night's preseason opener against the Redskins reportedly was meant as a trade showcase for Ryan Mallett, the Patriots' fourth-year quarterback. Mallett didn't stir up much interest.

He played the entire first half, going 5 for 12 for 55 yards and leading New England to zero points. Mallett's highly inaccurate performance means he might not enter the season as Tom Brady's backup. Rookie Jimmy Garoppolo is pushing for the No. 2 job.


Tom Brady to sit, Ryan Mallett to start at Washington


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/7/2014) The Patriots will rest quarterback Tom Brady tonight at Washington and will start backup Ryan Mallett instead, a source told the Boston Herald. This will be only the fourth time in Brady's career as the Pats' starter where he'll sit out the team's opening preseason game. Brady is not believed to be injured.  

The paper believes that if Mallett looks good this preseason that he could end up being part of a trade.
