Tom Savage OUT vs. Raiders

Tom Savage won't be suiting up for the Texans playoff game against Oakland after suffering a concussion in Sunday's game at Tennessee. The third-year quarterback is currently in the NFL's five-stage concussion protocol and did not practice Wednesday.

"He is still in the protocol so I would say that he would be out for the game," head coach Bill O'Brien said Wednesday.

Savage was injured on a 4th-and-1 quarterback sneak in the second quarter against the Titans. Brock Osweiler, who entered in relief, will be the starting quarterback, with five-year veteran DeAndre Hopkins as his backup, in the Texans AFC Wild Card game on Saturday.

Savage started two games this season and saw action in Week 15 against Jacksonville. Through three games, Savage has completed 46-of-73 passes for 461 yards, no touchdowns, no interceptions, and a passer rating of 80.9.

The Texans AFC Wild Card game against the Oakland Raiders will be Osweiler's postseason debut. Kickoff is scheduled for Saturday at 3:35 p.m. CT on ESPN/ABC and SportsRadio 610.
