HOUSTON — There’s just one NFL group that hasn’t called its beginning quarterback for Week 1: the Houston Texans.
But the No. 2 choice, quarterback C.J Stroud, isn’t troubled by it. Stroud states that’s not his duty.
“I ain’t tripping. Just do what’s on my plate. I’m not worried about anybody else’s plate. I got to focus on what we got going on in this locker room,” Stroud stated. “And just getting better every day. It’s not about any of that stuff. It’s about competing every day and just getting better. That’s not my job. My job is to go out there and play. I got the fun stuff to do.”
The Texans are the last group to reveal their beginning quarterback, and on Wednesday, coach DeMeco Ryans decreased to call the starter for Week 1 versus the Baltimore Ravens.
“In everybody’s case, we’ll see who earns what, and you’ll see our starters in Baltimore,” Ryans stated.
Ryans stated there would be a quarterback competitors entering into training school in between 2021-2022 Texans’ starter Davis Mills and Stroud.
But throughout August camp practices and 2 preseason video games, Stroud has actually specifically kept up the first-team offense while Mills has actually run with the junior varsity. The novice quarterback began versus the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots and will begin the ending versus the New Orleans Saints.
Through 2 preseason video games, Mills has actually played 50 snaps and has actually finished 55% of his passes for 193 lawns with a goal and no interceptions. Stroud has actually played 6 series and finished 56% of his passes for 73 lawns without any goals and an interception.
“They all have steps they can take,” Texans offending planner Bobby Slowik stated. “They all have places they can go with their game that they haven’t quite got to yet to be more efficient and just cleaner with the operation and with the footwork and some little things like that. We’ll just keep grinding through that.”
