T.J. Yates to DeAndre Hopkins again gives Texans the lead

T.J. Yates has played two series. The only question he has left is: Why didn’t the Texans put him in the lineup sooner? It took an injury to Tom Savage, who has not returned after taking a huge hit from Elvis Dumervil in the second quarter, for Yates to play. Yates has led the Texans [more]
