Tom Savage out for Wildcard game-- Wed Jan 4 2:00 pm --
Brandon Weeden to backup Osweiler
Texans quarterback Tom Savage will not back up Brock Osweiler in Saturday's playoff game against the Oakland Raiders because he is still in the concussion protocol. Texans head coach Bill O'Brien named Osweiler the starter on Tuesday. Now, Brandon Weeden will be active as the backup quarterback Saturday.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:The Texans will turn back to Osweiler who was benched for poor play just a couple weeks ago. Weeden has been active for just two games this season.

Osweiler to the bench
"It's a football decision," O'Brien said. "It's about what's best for the team.
You have to go with what's best for the team."
O'Brien said that Osweiler handled the news "like a professional," and understands he needs to stay ready and continue to prepare.(Houston Chronicle)
FF Today's Take:Brock Osweiler has been brutal this season sporting a 59.6 competition percentage while throwing 16 interceptions in 14 games. Tom Savage gave the offense some signs of life with 260 yards in three quarters of play. The Texans have the Bengals and Titans left on the schedule.
