Tom Savage spasms after hit, replaced by TJ Yates

  • Texans quarterback Tom Savage will get another chance to curb his turnover problems when he faces the 49ers on Sunday at NRG

Savage was hit by 49ers defensive end Elvis Dumervil as he threw an incomplete pass on third down, ESPN reported.

Backup T.J. Yates replaced Savage, who completed 6 of 12 pass attempts for 63 yards in the first two quarters. He is now officially out with a concussion.

Savage actually remained in the game and played the next series for Houston, which was a 3-and-out. But a Texans official grabbed Savage's arm and prevented him from going back on the field.

Savage and Yates are the only quarterbacks on Houston's roster, so they'll have to sign someone this week to back up Yates if Savage is unable to play on Sunday. The Texans have had six players sustain concussions in the last two games combined.


Savage returned to the field just minutes later despite the hit, but was later removed from the game due to a concussion.

His injury is the latest setback for a team that has had more than its share of problems this year.

Savage had been benched earlier in the season in favor of Watson and has been 1-5 in his starts during the 2017 season. The team suffered another blow on November 19 when rookie running back D'Onta Foreman ruptured his left Achilles tendon. His 41-yard field goal with 3:50 left in the fourth quarter put the 49ers up two scores. Texans (4-9) lost their third straight and sixth in seven games.

"I've never been part of a team like this with this many injuries", receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. The Texans' pass defense has improved in recent weeks but it is still ranked No. 22 in the National Football League in yards per game given up. San Francisco (2-10) got all of its points off five field goals from Robbie Gould against the Bears. Thought we really struggled to run the ball today.
