The Houston Texans will turn to quarterback Kyle Allen to start this weekend’s game against the host Miami Dolphins, multiple media outlets reported on Wednesday.
Davis Mills has struggled this season for the Texans (1-8-1). He threw two interceptions — including a pick-six on the opening drive — in Houston’s 23-10 loss to the Washington Commanders last Sunday.
Texans coach Lovie Smith declined to name his starting quarterback during Wednesday’s press conference, telling reporters that he didn’t want to “give the opponent an advantage.”
Allen, 26, has yet to debut for the Texans this season since signing a one-year contract in March. He has completed 63.1 percent of his pass attempts for 4,318 yards with 24 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 21 games (17 starts) with the Carolina Panthers (2018-19) and Washington franchise (2020-21).
Mills, 24, has completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 2,144 yards with 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 10 games this season.
