Texans QB Savage suffers concussion; brief return sparks controversy

49ers: Live Week 14 thread versus the Texans

Yates engineered consecutive scoring drives upon entering the game, capping both with touchdown passes to receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

We had another horrifying example of this today when Texans quarterback Tom Savage took a huge hit from the 49ers' Elvis Dumervil and literally started convulsing on the field (see above).

But after a rough start with an interception and just four first downs on the first four offensive possessions Sunday against the Houston Texans, things started to look as the 49ers had envisioned under the new quarterback.

Garoppolo, who arrived in Santa Clara on October 31 after a trade with the New England Patriots, has the most yards passing for any 49ers quarterback making his first two starts since the National Football League merger in 1970.




Houston may turn to a new kicker this week after Ka'imi Fairbairn struggled again.

Texans tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz, who suffered at least his third concussion of the 2017 season last weekend against the Titans, could be forced to retire at age 26, sources told ESPN. Marquise Goodwin caught six passes for 106 yards, while Garrett Celek added two receptions for 67 yards. In the third quarter, the Texans announced that Savage had a concussion and would be out for the remainder of the game.

Yates led a touchdown drive as the Texans trailed 13-9 at halftime.

Brown's absence means the 49ers will call on Zane Beadles potentially line up against Jadeveon Clowney. Defensive linemen Tank Carradine and Aaron Lynch will be available to play.
