Houston Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett probably should have kept his body language in check during Thursday’s game against the Colts.
Mallett thought he was “putting on a clinic” during an opening drive that ended in a red zone interception and two drives later, he was replaced by backup Brian Hoyer. As Hoyer proceeded to lead Houston to a field goal and a crazy Hail Mary on the following two drives, Mallett was clearly annoyed on the sideline. He eventually left the field before the clock ran out.
“I thought the half was over,” Mallett later said, via the Houston Chronicle. “That’s all it was.”
Coach Bill O’Brien is unsure which QB he’ll start on Sunday against the Jaguars. Just a reminder, the last time Mallett lost his job to Hoyer, which was before the start of the regular season, he publicly expressed his frustration and “overslept” for practice in the days that followed.
