Yates suffered the injury in Sunday's 16-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. He fell to the turf and immediately grabbed his left knee despite being untouched in the second quarter.
12/21/15 - QB T.J. Yates (torn ACL) was placed on reserve/injured by the Texans Monday (Dec. 21).
12/16/15 - QB T.J. Yates will have a central role Sunday when he starts for the second time this year with starter Brian Hoyer declared out by coach Bill O'Brien due to a concussion.
"My family and I were all diehard Colts fans," Yates said. "I had to ask my brother what jersey he was going to wear on Sunday because he's still a very, very big Colts fan. He said he's going to support the Texans, but all other weeks, he's a Colts fan."
11/20/15 - QB T.J. Yates will start Sunday's game against the Jets after Texans coach Bill O'Brien officially ruled out quarterback Brian Hoyer.
Yates' 22-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in the fourth quarter lifted Houston to a 10-6 victory over the previously unbeaten Bengals on Monday night. Yates completed five of 11 passes for 69 yards in relief of Hoyer, who suffered a concussion that caused memory loss in the game.
11/18/15 - QB T.J. Yates is scheduled to starti Sunday against the Jets, his first regular-season start since his rookie season of 2011. Yates has been huddling with Texans coach Bill O'Brien and offensive coordinator George Godsey since Tuesday to collaborate on a game plan tailored to his knowledge of the plays and the strengths of his game.
"You know it's different," Yates said. "You obviously get more reps, so you feel more comfortable going into the game. Some of those plays I ran in the game were the first time I've ever run them, period, practice or game, so you feel more comfortable going in, getting more reps during the week."
