HOUSTON, Texas — The Houston Texans lost more than a game on Sunday when they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals 22-13. The 5-6 Texans learned that they lost starting quarterback Ryan Mallett to a torn right pectoral muscle. Some media outlets have reported that injury will shelve Mallett for the season, although the Texans have yet to officially confirm Mallett is lost for the season.

Mallett struggled in his second career start as he went 21-45 for 189 yards and an interception.

The Texans will most likely turn to veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick (157-254, 1960 yards, 11 TDs) to take the reins at quarterback. Fitzpatrick started all Texans games until Mallet was named the starter for the Cleveland Browns game in week 11 after the Texans bye week.

When asked about being thrust back into a starting role, Fitzpatrick says he hasn’t heard much, “Just being around the league for so long, there is never a dull moment. For me, it’s just a normal Monday. Just come in and get a work out in.”

The next Texans game will be Sunday November 30 at NRG Stadium where they host the 2-9 Tennessee Titans.
