Ryan Mallett says he acted immaturely with Texans by Jamison Hensley, ESPN.com
"Newly-signed Baltimore Ravens quarterback Ryan Mallett said he has grown up a lot from a difficult season in Houston, which led him to being released from the Texans two months ago.“I acted immaturely at some games in Houston,” Mallett said Wednesday after his first practice with the Ravens. “There were reasons for it. But that’s not going to be discussed right now. The best thing probably was for me to be cut.”"
Mallett might actually get a chance to play before the end of the year because the Ravens have Matt Schaub and Jimmy Clausen as options right now. It might be Mallett’s last chance to prove he can cut it in the NFL.
Andrew Luck out, Matt Hasselbeck in vs. Texans? by Deepi Sidhu, Houstontexans.com
We know that T.J. Yates will be starting for the Texans in Indianapolis on Sunday, but it remains a mystery whom the Colts will start.
"It looks like Andrew Luck won’t be facing the Texans at all in 2015.On Wednesday, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano ruled him out for Sunday’s pivotal game between the two AFC South division rivals.“Andrew’s not going to play, just to be perfectly clear on that,” Pagano said via conference call. “Back out on the practice field. He’s been running and doing some stuff on his own. He didn’t participate in any 11-on-11 drills. He’s not cleared to do that yet but he can throw some individual, some routes on-air type of stuff.”"

"The Texans struggled with dropped passes.They did so in Sunday night’s loss to the Patriots, and they’ve done so all season long.With an NFL-worst 28 drops out of 328 catchable passes in 2015, the Houston offense is at the bottom of the League in that category. So offensive coordinator George Godsey and company have gone back to the basics to fix it."
