Brandon Weeden is staying in Texas. The former Cowboys quarterback, who was cut by Dallas on Tuesday, has been claimed by the Houston Texans and will likely serve as the team's backup quarterback on Sunday.
Texans starter Brian Hoyer, who suffered a concussion against the Bengals on Monday night, didn't practice on Wednesday and is still in the concussion protocol.
As for Weeden, the move to Houston seems like a good one for him because he gets to go from a last-place team in Dallas to a team that's tied for first place in Houston.
The Cowboys decided to let Weeden go after Tony Romo returned this week. In three starts for the Cowboys this year, Weeden threw for 246.3 yards per game and totaled two touchdown passes. However, the former Browns quarterback was benched in Dallas after going 0-3.
The No. 22 overal pick in the 2012 NFL Draft has lost his last 11 starts dating back to the end of the 2012 season.
Besides Weeden and Yates, the only other healthy quarterback on the Texans' roster is former Broncos quarterback Zac Dysert, who is on the team's practice squad.
