Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured hamstring but will miss at least the Week 3 game, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see how long Taylor will miss. Davis Mills is on track to start next week and was productive in relief against the Cleveland Browns this week. Mills can still be avoided in fantasy leagues at this time.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 20, on the injured hamstring he suffered in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. He has been ruled out for the Week 3 game against the Carolina Panthers, a Thursday game.
Huddle Up: Taylor just can't seem to catch a break. Rookie Davis Mills came on for Taylor, and he appears to be in line to start in Week 3. Neither Taylor nor Mills has much in the way of fantasy value for the Texans.

Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 2 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Davis Mills will take over the starting quarterback job while Taylor is sidelined but can be avoided in all fantasy leagues. Fantasy players should receive a update on Taylor in the next day or two.

Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor will start at quarterback in Week 1. QB Deshaun Watson is on the roster, but he will not play.
Huddle Up: Taylor receives another chance after his starting spot was essentially taken from him after receiving a bad injection in his ribs that punctured his lung to begin the Justin Herbert era. It's a feel-good story for him, but he merits no fantasy consideration outside of two-QB leagues for now. As for Watson, expect him to be a must-stash for at least the first few weeks.

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor plans to sign a one-year contract with the Houston Texans worth as much as $12.5 million, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Texans quarterback situation is uncertain at this point, so there is a chance that Taylor is the starter in 2021. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because Taylor could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent QB Jacoby Brissett, Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor and free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Ravens) could be possible backup quarterback options for the Miami Dolphins this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Cameron Wolfe.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor declined to file a grievance against the team and its doctor for administering a pain-killing shot in mid-September that led to a puncture in his lung.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (lung) has been medically cleared to resume practicing. He could return as backup this week.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert will remain the starting quarterback moving forward regardless of when Tyrod Taylor (chest, ribs) returns, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Herbert basically forced Lynn's hand with his play since drawing a surprise start in Week 2. The overall No. 6 pick in this spring's draft has shown remarkable poise ever since and is coming off a three-touchdown effort in a near-upset against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' vaunted defense last week. Herbert will be a high-end streamer with QB1 upside given his upcoming schedule, including games against the New Orleans Saints and New York Jets the next two weeks.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (chest, ribs) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and has been ruled out for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Justin Herbert will receive another start and has thrown for at least 300 yards in each of the last two games. He can be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues but should be avoided in standard leagues.
