Tex­ans at Jaguars 1 p.m. JAC by 11/ 2

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

An­other week, an­other Hous­ton start­ing QB. Well, it’s al­ways either Brian Hoyer or Ryan Mal­lett, and Hoyer has re­claimed the job for now af­ter be­ing eas­ily the less ter­ri­ble of the two over the past cou­ple of games. There’s never any ques­tion about who’s get­ting the start for Jack­sonville, but Blake Bor­tles will have to play through a shoul­der sprain that could limit his abil­ity to go deep. Pricey free agent ac­qui­si­tion Julius Thomas made his long-awaited de­but for the Jags last week af­ter a pre­sea­son hand in­jury, but he didn’t do much. With a game un­der his belt, though, Thomas can be ex­pected to start con­tribut­ing to fan­tasy line­ups as the team’s pass-catch­ing TE. As it hap­pens, Bor­tles’s in­jury may have him look­ing to hit un­der­neath routes more than usual.
