The Houston Texans may be without their starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor for up to a month, KPRC 2′s Randy McIlvoy has confirmed.
.#NFL source tells us #Texans QB Tyrod Taylor has a significant hamstring injury that could keep him out possibly the next 4 games. Evaluations will determine the timeline. Still TBD. He injured it late in the first half Sunday and didn't return in the 2nd half.— Randy McIlvoy (@KPRC2RandyMc) September 20, 2021
An NFL source told McIlvoy that Taylor has a significant hamstring injury that could keep him out the next four games, with future evaluations to determine a more specific timeline.
Taylor hurt his hamstring in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns - a game the Texans lost 31-21. This came after Taylor had started the game 10-11 on his passes for 125 yards with a touchdown through the air, and had also run for a 15-yard score on the ground to tie the game at 14-14. Rookie Davis Mills took over for the injured Taylor and finished with a touchdown pass and an interception.
During Monday morning’s media availability, Texans Head Coach David Culley had said Taylor was considered day to day, but now it certainly appears the Texans will be without Taylor for their upcoming game Thursday and possibly longer. The Texans host the Carolina Panthers Thursday evening at NRG Stadium. That game will be broadcast on KPRC 2.
