Texans bench Ryan Fitzpatrick, going with Ryan Mallett
The Houston Texans have benched quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, naming Ryan Mallett the starter.
"Bright guy, here early and stays late," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "Learned lot backing up Tom Brady. This is his shot."
A change had been contemplated for the past few days.
“This might be the thing that helps our team,” O’Brien said. "I might be wrong.”
Fitzpatrick is the backup, Tom Savage is the third quarterback.
