By Matt Noonan
After defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Houston Texans learned after the team’s eighth victory of the season that back-up quarterback Matt Leinart would most likely miss the remainder of the season after suffering a collarbone injury on Sunday.
With Leinart sidelined, the Texans were forced to play T.J. Yates, who finished the game completing 8-of-15 passes for 70 yards.
However, if the Texans want to continue their winning ways, they’ll most likely want to acquire a veteran quarterback with experience. NFL.com compiled a list of possible quarterbacks that Houston could sign, and yes, Brett Favre was one of the names mentioned.
Here’s the article, along with a list of quarterbacks that Texans might consider signing prior to next Sunday’s affair against Atlanta.
