Houston Chronicle reporter Aaron Wilson on Thursday reported the news that Houston Texans starting quarterback Brian Hoyer, 30, returned to the practice field with his teammates.
Hoyer who suffered a concussion injury two weeks ago during the Texans 27-6 to the New England Patriots would have to get clearance from the officials of the National Football League to make his next start on Sunday November 27, 2015 when the Tennessee Titans will be hosting the Texans in Nashville Tennessee.
In case Hoyer is not able to make his next start versus the Titans if he is not cleared to play football, the Texans will start former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden.
The Texans (7-7) are currently in first place in the American Football Conference South Division standings. The Tennessee Titans (3-11) are currently in last place in the American Football Conference South Division standings.
The football game between the Texans and Titans will be played at Nissan Stadium in Nashville Tennessee next Sunday afternoon. The Titans will relish the chance of playing the spoiler role against the Texans.
While Hoyer gives the Texans the best chance of winning their eight football game of the current regular football season since he is their first string quarterback, it is likely that the Texans will not activate him to play football against the Titans since he is currently listed as questionable on the injury report.
The Texans have a one game lead over the defending American Football Conference South Division champion Indianapolis Colts (6-8) going into the next football game versus the Titans.
Hoyer would be available to make his next start on Sunday January 3, 2016 when the Texans host the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-9) at Reliant Stadium in Houston Texas in the final regular season of the 2015 football season.
The Texans are in pursuit of making the playoffs for the first time since 2012 when they won the American Football Conference Division title.
