CLEVELAND -- Houston Texans quarterback Tyrod TAYLOR was out of Sunday's game against Cleveland Browns because of a hamstring injury. To replace him, rookie quarterback Davis Mills started the second half.

Taylor was slowing down as he ran in to score a touchdown in quarter two, but he didn’t miss a single snap. Taylor headed to the locker room shortly before halftime, but he did not return to the sideline for the start of the third.

Mills completed 8 of 18 passes for 102 yards, with a touchdown pass as well as an interception in the 31-21 defeat.

Taylor completed 10 of 11 passes, gaining 125 yards and a touchdown. This was his first appearance in Cleveland since 2018. Baker Mayfield, a rookie quarterback, took Taylor's place after he was forced to leave a Week 3 match with a concussion. Mayfield was awarded the job as the starter after the Browns won.

Sunday's game against Browns saw Taylor score 12 touchdowns and one rushing touchdown. ESPN Stats & Information ranks this fifth among all NFL games, behind Josh Allen (16), Cam Newton (18), Dak Prescott (16), and Kirk Cousins (13)

Houston's draft pick Mills, a third-round selection in April, was Mills.
