Tyrod Taylor, QB (HOU)

Officially out for Week 3

Taylor (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Carolina, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

The announcement from coach David Culley comes as little surprise after Taylor sustained what's believed to be a Grade 2 left hamstring strain in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Browns, per Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston. The injury typically carries a four-week recovery timeline, so Taylor could be a candidate to move to injured reserve, which would entail an absence of at least three weeks. Third-round selection Davis Mills will step in at quarterback for his first NFL start Thursday, while the Texans plan to elevate Jeff Driskel from the practice squad to serve as the rookie's understudy.
