Texans coach Lovie Smith left the door open for a quarterback change after Houston’s Week 11 loss to the Commanders. On Wednesday, he declined to name a starter for Week 12’s upcoming matchup with the Dolphins. But change is indeed coming, according to NFL Media, with Kyle Allen set to replace Davis Mills on Sunday.
“We’re not going announce who’s starting through the week,” Smith told reporters Wednesday. “We have a starting lineup. … When it changes, we’ll let you know. Of course, we’re not going to announce anything like that (at QB). That would give an opponent an advantage. There’s not going to be any announcement.”
Allen, however, will get first-team reps at practice in the lead-up to Sunday’s game in Miami, per NFL Media. Smith previously indicated, immediately after the Texans’ latest defeat, that Mills could be benched.
“We’re not pleased with where we are,” he said. “Do we need to do some things differently? Yes, and we will.”
