HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – The Texans could be starting Brandon Weeden on Sunday against the Titans in Tennessee if Brian Hoyer’s concussion issues linger and keep him out of the game.
“Now they’ve actually heard me call a play in the huddle,” Weeden joked Wednesday when asked about getting used to being a quarterback on the team.
Weeden, who took over for T.J. Yates when Yates went down with an ACL injury, took just one snap last week in practice before his game action Sunday.
“What is it? Basically two quarters of football? Able to do some decent things offensively. We’ve got a feel for each other now it’s just see where we’re at moving forward.”
Bill O’Brien noted Weeden’s limited practice snaps were based around getting Yates ready to play last week and focusing on keeping the offense moving.
“When you get here there’s no similarities,” Weeden said about learning a new offense.
He mentioned he might hear a certain word and connect it but said it is a fresh start and said it might even be a little bit easier to learn from the ground up. He said he will prepare off the field like he usually does but this week could have more snaps for him.
“I really didn’t get a chance to throw many routes to these other guys because there’s just limited throws out there,” he said.
Weeden said he is helping new quarterback B.J. Daniels as much as he can but noted they draw from Hoyer, T.J. Yates, and even center Ben Jones to help with the intricacies of the offense.
Weeden knows he can’t try to do too much this week.
“I think for me just going out, doing the little things, day one stuff, get the cadence right. Get the (linebacker call out) points right. The communication. If I can just over-communicate you know we’ve got good players, hopefully the rest will take care of itself.”
