Davis Mills, QB (HOU)

On track to fill in for Taylor

With Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) expected to miss time, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Mills is in line to start Thursday night's game against the Panthers.

Though Taylor's looming absence has not yet been officially confirmed by the Texans, the veteran QB isn't expected to play Thursday, at a minimum, and an IR stint could be in the cards for him. As a result, with Deshaun Watson not being considered as an option to replace Taylor, Mills is in line to start versus Carolina, while Jeff Driskel is a candidate to be elevated from the practice squad to Houston's active roster to serve as the team's backup signal-caller Week 3.
