Yates (knee) has been cleared to return after tearing his ACL last season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Yates remains unsigned, but could pick up attraction now that he has been fully cleared from the season-ending injury. With several teams in need of quarterback depth, the 29-year-old could find his way onto an NFL roster before the regular season begins.

Yates' (knee) torn ACL has been confirmed by testing, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Yates' season will now come to a close after a couple of valiant efforts in relief of Brian Hoyer (concussion). With Yates out, Brandon Weeden becomes the Texans' stand-in starting quarterback until Hoyer clears league protocol.

It appears as though Yates suffered a torn ACL on Sunday against the Colts, ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brandon Weeden replaced Yates on Sunday, with Brian Hoyer out with a concussion. While tests will be required to confirm the severity of Yates' injury, it looks like his season is probably done.

Yates (knee) is questionable to return Sunday against the Colts, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Yates had completed 6-of-10 passes for 68 yards and an interception while rushing once for seven yards. In his absence, Brandon Weeden has taken over at quarterback.

Yates is slated to start Sunday's game against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

He will draw the assignment with Brian Hoyer (concussion) not available to play Sunday, which makes Yates a fantasy lineup option in deeper fantasy formats this week. In three appearances this season, including one start (11/22 against the Jets) that he won, Yates has completed 22 of 47 passes for 302 yards with three TDs and no picks.

Yates could start in Week 15 against the Colts, after teammate Brian Hoyer suffered another concussion Sunday night, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Yates is expected to be prepared as the Texans' starting quarterback this week, since Hoyer's latest concussion marked his second in the past month. So far, in Yates' three appearances in Hoyer's absence, he's completed 22-of-47 attempts for 302 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. While he certainly lacks great upside, Yates is at least a serviceable backup option, and Sunday's game comes against a Colts defense that surrendered over 50 points this past weekend.

Yates completed one of his two pass attempts for four yards in Sunday's 27-6 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Brian Hoyer was removed late in the fourth quarter and evaluated for a potential concussion, allowing Yates to play one garbage-time drive. If the concussion is confirmed, Hoyer will have a tough time being ready for Week 15 against the Colts, as he recently missed a game in Week 11 with the same injury. Yates played well in his absence, completing 16 of 34 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-17 win over the Jets. There was no update on Hoyer's status after Sunday's game.

Yates, who filled in at quarterback for Brian Hoyer (concussion) in Sunday's win over the Jets, is expected to head back to the bench next week against New Orleans, the Houston Chronicle reports. "Hoyer is our starter," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "When he comes back, when he's healthy, he'll come back in there and we've spoken to T.J. about that."

EDGE Analysis

Hoyer's concussion symptoms have improved significantly and is expected to start against the Saints in Week 12. Yates completed 16-of-34 for 229 yards and two touchdowns in Week 11, a 24-17 win over the Jets.

Yates completed 16 of 34 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Jets. He also rushed three times for minus-5 yards and lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Yates connected with six different receivers, as DeAndre Hopkins led the way by catching five passes on 12 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns despite lining up against Darrelle Revis for much of the game. It was an excellent first start for Yates, who got the call in place of the injured Brian Hoyer (concussion). If Hoyer has to miss any additional time, Yates will get an excellent Week 12 matchup against a Saints defense that is allowing the third-most passing yards per game this season and has given up the most passing touchdowns.

Yates will start Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Yates fills in for injured teammate Brian Hoyer (concussion), who has already been ruled out of Sunday's game. While Yates was able to engineer an unlikely win in Cincinnati in relief of Hoyer on Monday, he still is rather new to the Texans' playbook, which figures to limit him against the Jets' fourth-ranked defense this Sunday.
