HOUSTON - Third-string quarterback T.J. Yates will get his first start this season for Houston on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars with Deshaun Watson out for the season with a knee injury and backup Tom Savage recovering from a concussion.But Yates already has plenty of history with the Texans, starting nine games for them including leading the franchise to its first playoff win in the 2011 season.Yates was a rookie that season when injuries to Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart thrust him into action.
Already derailed by injuries to key players, the Texans' disappointing season trudged on with their fourth loss in five games without Deshaun Watson.
No additional damage found

FF Today's Take: With the surgery complete, Watson will begin his recovery to get back onto the field for 2018 season. In the meantime, Houston will continue to deploy Tom Savage as their quarterback. The 2014 fourth-round draft pick threw for 219 yards and one touchdown in Week 9's loss to the Colts.
