With starting quarterback Brian Hoyer sidelined another week due a concussion, Brandon Weeden will get the start Sunday against the Tennessee Titans as the Texans look to clinch the AFC South title.
Hoyer was declared inactive Sunday, making Weeden the fourth different quarterback to start a game for Houston this season. Hoyer, T.J. Yates and the since-released Ryan Mallett have all started for the 7-7 Texans this year.
Last week, Weeden led the Texans to a 16-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts in relief of Yates, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in the second quarter.
Hoyer was injured during the Texans' Dec. 13 loss to the New England Patriots. He returned to practice on a limited basis this week, but has not yet been cleared to play.
B.J. Daniels, who was signed off Seattle's practice squad earlier in the week, will serve as Weeden's backup against the Titans.
Houston can clinch the division with a win against Tennessee, coupled with either a loss or tie by the Colts. Indianapolis faces the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
