Weeden has re-signed with the Texans, the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Weeden played for both the Cowboys and Texans last season, passing for 305 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in two appearances for Houston, where he'll remain this season. Although he's destined for a backup position, Weeden's signing serves as another indication that the Texans will part ways with fellow quarterback Brian Hoyer this offseason.

With the Texans announcing that Brian Hoyer will start Week 17 against the Jaguars, Weeden will head back to a reserve role.

EDGE Analysis

Weeden had filled in well for Hoyer, leading the Texans to two straight wins and putting them in place to clinch the AFC South with a win over Jacksonville.

Weeden completed 15-of-24 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns, and added 11 yards and a rushing score on two carries in Sunday's 34-6 victory over the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Weeden showed excellent composure in leading the Texans to a 34-0 lead through three quarters, even contributing with his legs on a seven-yard scramble into the end zone for his first career rushing touchdown. Houston will have a chance to clinch the division in next week's season finale against a porous Jaguars defense, so expect the team's fourth starting quarterback of the season to pull no punches in trying to lead his squad to its first playoff berth since 2012.

Weeden is starting Sunday against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

With Brian Hoyer out while he continues to recover from a concussion, Weeden will be under center with the Texans just one win away from winning the AFC South. While he'll have star wideout DeAndre Hopkins to throw passes to, Weeden remains a fairly weak fantasy option, even against a Titans defense that is far from elite.

Weeden will start Sunday's game against the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brian Hoyer failed to be cleared by the league's concussion protocol, so Weeden will step in after coming on in relief of Hoyer during last week's win over the Colts. In that contest, Weeden completed 11-of-18 passes for 105 yards and one touchdown. While he remains a bottom-tier fantasy option at quarterback this week, he'll face a Tennessee defense that's allowing 25.9 points per game on the season, good for 24th in the league. With Hoyer unavailable, B.J. Daniels is expected to serve as Weeden's backup.

Weeden will get the start Sunday against Tennessee, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Brian Hoyer still going through the league's concussion protocol, coach Bill O'Brien and the Texans have given Weeden the nod for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Titans. Weeden came on in relief of the injured T.J Yates in Week 15 and helped lead the Texans to a critical win over Indianapolis, completing 11-of-18 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown. He'll be facing a middling Titans pass defense on the road Sunday.

Weeden is expected to play his second consecutive game as Brian Hoyer is questionable and remains under the NFL's concussion protocol, the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Weeden has prepped all week as the starter and with Hoyer still in the concussion protocol this late in the practice week, it's highly probable Weeden will be starting against the Titans this week. If Hoyer is unavailable to play, the recently signed B.J. Daniels will be the Texans backup quarterback.

Weeden took reps with the first-team offense during Wednesday's practice, the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Even though Brian Hoyer was a limited participant Wednesday, he remains under the NFL's concussion protocol and lined up with the scout team. The Texans are preparing for Weeden to start, but Hoyer could be cleared before Sunday. If Hoyer is not cleared, Weeden will start and the recently signed B.J. Daniels will be the backup.

Weeden came on for the injured T.J. Yates (knee) and completed 11 of 18 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 16-10 win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

The Texans' quarterback situation is a mess right now, as Yates was only getting the start because Brian Hoyer suffered two concussions in the last month. Yates is believed to have suffered a torn ACL, which could mean Weeden will be the starter in Week 16 against the Titans, as the Texans need just one win to clinch the AFC South.

The Texans have claimed Weeden on waivers from the Cowboys, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, the move would appear to signal that Brian Hoyer (concussion) could be out this Sunday against the Jets, and in such a scenario, Weeden would bolster the Texans' QB depth behind T.J. Yates.
