The Houston Texans are planning to sign Colin Kaepernick after their starting quarterback, rookie Deshaun Watson, suffered a season-ending torn ACL. According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the Texans are weighing whether or not Kaepernick could take over for Watson, who suffered the injury in practice, ending his outstanding rookie season. “There has been some chatter inside the [Texans'] building, whether or not they take a look at Colin Kaepernick,” said Glazer.

Kaepernick remains unsigned since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March.

Last season, Kaepernick completed 196-of-331 passes for 16 touchdowns with four interceptions for a passer rating of 90.7, higher than some starters this season. Kaepernick also ran 69 times for 468 yards and two touchdowns. Currently, the Texans have Tom Savage as starter with TJ Yates and Matt McGloin as backups.

Recently, Kaepernick filed a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) grievance case, claiming that team owners colluded against him for kneeling during the national anthem in the 2016 preseason. As part of his case, three NFL owners -- the Dallas Cowboys' Jerry Jones, New England Patriots' Robert Kraft and Texans' Bob McNair – were deposed for their cellphone records and emails in connection with the case.

Adrian Schefter of ESPN reported that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will also be asked to turn over his email and cellphone records and will be deposed in Kaepernick’s collusion case. Recently, McNair came under fire for his "we can't have the inmates running the prison" statement.

Broncos plan to start Paxton Lynch

The Denver Broncos are planning to start second-year quarterback Paxton Lynch once he returns from the shoulder injury that he sustained in the third game of the preseason.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Insider, Lynch is rapidly improving and he could take over the starting role if Brock Osweiler falters. The Broncos decided to replace Trevor Siemian with Osweiler against the Philadelphia Eagles. Siemian beat Lynch for the starting job but his struggles in the first half of the season forced the Broncos to remove him as primary signal-caller.

In seven starts this season, Siemian completed 152-of-247 passes for 1,669 yards and nine touchdowns with 10 interceptions. Last season, Lynch played three games, with two starts, completing 49-of-83 passes for 497 yards and two touchdowns with an interception.

Colts’ Luck advised to stop throwing

According to Rapoport, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been advised to stop throwing for months and focus solely on rehabilitating his shoulder. Luck underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder in January and hoped to return at some point this season. However, he suffered a setback during rehabilitation, forcing the team to place him on injured reserve that ended his season.
