Tyrod Taylor was balling in Week 1 against the Jaguars and having a good game against the Browns when he injured his hamstring.

Davis Mills, a third-round rookie out of Stanford, replaced Taylor and finished the game, which the Texans lost, 31-21.

Taylor is unlikely to play in Week 3, according to reports, leaving the door open for Mills or Deshaun Watson to start Thursday night.

Carson Wentz was keeping the Colts in the game against the Rams Sunday when his ankle was rolled up on in the fourth quarter. Wentz was sidelined, and Jacob Eason replaced him.

“He rolled it up pretty bad. I kind of had a sense when we walked off the field because I saw that it didn’t look good,” Colts coach Frank Reich said, via NFL.com. “The longer we were off the field there it just stiffened up. He tried (to return), but there was no chance.” 

Eason was picked off trying to get the victory on the final drive. The Rams won 27-24.

Baker Mayfield, Browns
