Quarterback Deshaun Watson is also on the Texans' 53-man roster but is expected to be a healthy scratch on game days for Houston.  Watson has been an off-the-field nightmare for the Texans as he faces sexual assault charges.

Rookie Davis Mills, a third-round pick, will be Taylor's backup.

Taylor, 32, signed a one-year contract with the Texans in March after spending two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers.

The 10-year veteran has made 47 starts in his career. He has passed for 9,770 yards with 54 touchdowns and 20 interceptions and rushed for 1,850 yards and 16 touchdowns in 72 games overall.
