The long stint for Tyrod Taylor on the injury report is no more.

On Tuesday, Houston Texans Head Coach David Culley revealed that Tyrod Taylor will come off of the injury report on Wednesday and return to practice this week. Taylor has been out since suffering a hamstring injury against the Cleveland Browns in Week 2. Texans fans remember that game as that was the game Houston was tied with Cleveland at halftime before the wheels fell off.

Any time your starting quarterback gets healthy, it’s always something to celebrate. That’s one thing that there has not been a lot of for Houston Texans fans this season. On a six-game losing streak, the Texans’ offense has failed to put up any offensive points in three of their last four games.

Specifically, the Texans have only scored eight points in those games (Buffalo 40-0, Indianapolis 31-3, Arizona 31-5). So hopefully this is the jolt the Texans offense needs, as the defense has had its moments, but never any support since Taylor went down.

Tyrod Taylor’s curse stops here, and the Davis Mills era should be over.

Davis Mills did as good of a job as a rookie quarterback could. Given that the offensive line got battered and the Texans entered a gauntlet of some of the best teams in the league, it’s no wonder why Mills struggled for most of those games.

However, it’s time for him to go back to the bench and let Taylor take his spot back. That’s not knocking anything Mills did-but think of Taylor’s career the past two seasons. He’s been the unluckiest guy in the league. Culley keeping his starting spot for him is a sign of pure class and respect for Taylor.

Hopefully, Taylor will be ready to go come Sunday, as the Los Angeles Rams come to town and the Texans will need all hands on deck if they want to compete and steal a win against Matthew Stafford and the Rams.
