Value of Texans WR Johnson could take another hit

The value of Texans WR Andre Johnson has taken a hit this week because of matchup against Jets CB Darrelle Revis. Dre’s value will plummet like the elevator car on Disney’s Hollywood Tower of Terror if the Texans have to turn to QBs Dan Orlovsky or Matt Leinart who has been listed as the team’s emergency quarterback for most of the season.

Leinart has incentives based on depth chart

With Matt Leinart’s contract with the Texans officially in the books, details of the one-year deal are now surfacing.

Texans pleased with backup quarterbacks

The additions of free agents with NFL starting experience, Dan Orlovsky and Rex Grossman, are providing encouragement that the Texans can stay on track even if Matt Schaub doesn’t play.

Grossman poised to compete for Texans’ No. 2 QB job

Three seasons after starting the Super Bowl for the Chicago Bears, Rex Grossman looks as if he will compete for the No. 2 quarterback job in Houston.

Texans find backup QB in ex-Lion Orlovsky

After trading Sage Rosenfels to the Minnesota Vikings on Friday, the Houston Texans needed a backup quarterback. They got one on Sunday, signing former Lions QB Dan Orlovsky, who arrived in Houston on Saturday and signed on Sunday.

Orlovsky gets call at QB for Lions

If the Lions are going to beat the Saints for their first win of the season, they’re going to have to do it with Dan Orlovsky as their starting quarterback.

It’s official: The Lions deactivated Daunte Culpepper and declared Drew Henson their No. 3 quarterback.

Lions’ Johnson gets plenty of work

Although the winless Lions have had a rotating cast at quarterback, their star receiver, Calvin Johnson, has been a big target for whoever is throwing the ball. Against the Colts, Johnson caught a career-high nine passes for 110 yards.

Winless Lions sticking with Orlovsky

If the Detroit Lions avoid becoming the NFL’s first 0-15 team Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, they’ll do it with Dan Orlovsky as the starting quarterback.

Lions QB Orlovsky ruled out vs. Jaguars

Lions QB Dan Orlovsky (right hand) was officially ruled out of Sunday’s game vs. Jacksonville, making it increasingly likely that Daunte Culpepper will see his first action of the season. Culpepper has reportedly split the first-team reps with backup Drew Stanton during practice this week.

Expect Culpepper under center Sunday

Detroit can dress it up any way it wants, try to fool Jacksonville as much as possible, keep things secret as long as it wants.

A bad week for fantasy quarterbacks

Prominent fantasy quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Matt Hasselbeck, Carson Palmer and Tony Romo (to name a few) have all been hit with the injury bug this season. Now a pair of emerging field generals are hurt.

Orlovsky too busy to worry about Culpepper

Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky has bigger things to worry about than the team bringing in Daunte Culpepper for a workout and physical.

The Lions’ current starting quarterback is facing the Monsters of the Midway on Sunday, at Soldier Field, while the team he leads is winless this season and has lost an embarrassing 14 of 15 games.

Importance of quarterback depth

Once again the league is reminded as to why it is so important to carry a quality No. 2, and sometimes a quality No. 3, quarterback.

Kitna out, Orlovsky will start for Lions

Though quarterback Dan Orlovsky will start today in place of injured starter Jon Kitna for Detroit today against Minnesota, he will have reinforcements on offense.

Kitna likely a game-time decision for Lions

Quarterbacks Drew Stanton and Dan Orlovsky split reps for the second straight day on Thursday as the Lions practiced without starter Jon Kitna.
