Hoyer (concussion) is active Sunday against the Jaguars.

Coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Wednesday that Hoyer is out of the NFL's concussion protocol and will start at QB for the Texans on Sunday against the Jaguars.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

For his part, Hoyer noted Wednesday that he feels "great" and has no reservations about playing this weekend, in a game in which the 8-7 Texans would clinch a playoff spot with a win. As it is, however, the Colts have only a slight chance to overtake the Texans for the AFC South crown, with the odds thus strongly in favor of Hoyer and company seeing postseason action when the Week 17 dust settles.
Hoyer (concussion) is set to practice Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Texans have not released an update on Hoyer's status for a few days, but this report indicates he will be cleared from the concussion protocol and take the practice field Wednesday, which would clear the road for him to start in Week 17. The Texans will release an official update on Hoyer's status sometime Wednesday, but it looks like the team's starting quarterback will be back in action for the regular season finale.
Head coach Bill O'Brien said after Sunday's win at Tennessee that Hoyer will start in Week 17 against Jacksonville if he clears the concussion protocol, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Hoyer will open the year as Cleveland's starter, but he's unlikely to hold off 22nd overall pick Johnny Manziel for more than a few weeks. Returning from an October ACL tear and throwing to a WR rotation that will be without Josh Gordon, Hoyer will likely struggle when he sees the field, at which point the stage will be set for Manziel. Hoyer was somewhat effective with Gordon on the field last year, though, throwing five touchdowns compared to three interceptions.

2013

With the jury still out on Brandon Weeden, the signing of Hoyer by the Browns sparked a bit of conversation at the time of the announcement. He received his first career start last season, though his play in his two games of action failed to change the perception he's going to be anything more than a reserve. He completed 30-of-53 passes for 330 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. The support behind Weeden has grown since Hoyer arrived in Cleveland and he'll battle Jason Campbell for the backup duties this season.

2012

Hoyer, who is ticketed for free agency after this season, has developed into a trusted backup for the Patriots, but if another team suffers an injury at QB, then the Patriots could consider dangling Hoyer, if they feel that Ryan Mallett is ready to assume the No. 2 QB job. That's something that the team is presumably still evaluating, however.

2011

Though the Patriots drafted fellow QB Ryan Mallett this past April, he's viewed as more of a developmental project than an immediate threat to Hoyer's gig as Tom Brady's top backup. In any case, Hoyer remains next in line for snaps in the event of an injury to Brady.

2010

As an undrafted free agent, the odds were stacked against Hoyer last year, but he'll head into the 2010 season as Tom Brady's top backup once again unless the Patriots make a move to add some veteran QB depth.

2009

Like most undrafted QBs he's a bit of a project, but he enters a Patriots' system where he has a chance to be methodically coached up. If he sticks as a rookie though, he'd either have to beat out Matt Gutierrez or settle for a spot on the practice squad.
