Fitzpatrick back under center for Texans

Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett's time as the starter was short lived. After being ruled out of Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, head coach Bill O'Brien announced that Mallett will be placed on injured reserve after suffering a torn pectoral. With Mallett on the shelf, the team goes back to Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starting quarterback.

"He's tough a kid. He's a good quarterback," O'Brien said of Mallett. "He'll rebound from this."

This is the second quarterback change the team has made this season. 

"Every single year that kind of stuff happens," center Chris Myers said of injuries. "It's no surprise and you just roll with the punches."

While spending the last two weeks on the sideline, Fitzpatrick had the opportunity to take in the game from a different perspective. 

"There might've been some good the last few weeks...sitting back and being able to watch it," Fitzpatrick explained. 

Sometimes with a quarterback change, the team's confidence can be affected. It seems the Texans locker room is an exception.

"We've got all the confidence in the world in Fitzpatrick." said wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. "He's a leader. He's a guy who has been in this league for awhile. Why wouldn't we have confidence in him?"

Fitzpatrick finds himself in a position that most previously benched quarterbacks don't find themselves in - a chance to start again.

"I didn't know if I'd get a chance to go out there and play again," he said. "It's a renewed sense of excitement and energy."
