After being sidelined due to a hamstring injury, veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor is now set to make his return to action with the Houston Texans.

Following the Texans’ scheduled practice session on Thursday, head coach David Culley noted that Taylor will start for the team at quarterback against the Miami Dolphins in Week 9.

“He’s healthy and he’s our starting quarterback,” Culley said. “There’s no setbacks in the hamstring. He’s been just fine, and hopefully he’s that way today and tomorrow.”

Taylor missed Houston’s last six games due to a Grade 2 hamstring injury suffered during the team’s Week 2 road matchup against the Cleveland Browns. He kicked off the game on a promising note with 125 passing yards and one passing touchdown through two quarters, but the injury ruled him out for the rest of the contest.

The Texans later elected to place him on injured reserve due to his injury.

While quarterback Deshaun Watson remained in the trade rumor mill over a possible departure from the team, the Texans opted to instead call on Davis Mills to be their starting quarterback for the time being. In his first year in the NFL, Mills had a roller-coaster run in anchoring the Texans offense, which included six passing touchdowns and seven interceptions in his six starts.

After seven straight losses, Taylor surely returns to the Texans at just the right time. He made his long-awaited return to practice last week and is now set to soon be activated off of injured reserve.

It will be noteworthy to see on just how Taylor performs in his first in-game action in two months.
