HOUSTON -- Coach David Culley announced Thursday that Tyrod Taylor, the Texans' quarterback, will play Sunday against Miami Dolphins.
Taylor hasn't played since Week 2 against Cleveland Browns, when he injured the left hamstring. Culley stated Thursday that Taylor's hamstring injury has not caused any problems and that the quarterback is now fit enough to play.
Taylor was able to return to practice on October 27th, but was not ready for Week 8.
Taylor was able to complete 70.5% of his passes, for 416 yards and three touchdowns before he was injured in Week 2.
Taylor was replaced by Davis Mills, a rookie quarterback who went 0-6 in six starts and completed 67% his passes with seven touchdowns (and eight interceptions) respectively.
In eight games this season, the Texans have been outscored by an NFL record 122 points. Houston was defeated by Jacksonville in Week 1, with Taylor as the center.
