Mallett to start at QB in Texans 2nd preseason game against Broncos

Peyton Manning will make his 2015 debut. The 39-year-old Manning sat out the first preseason game, but coach Gary Kubiak said "he'll play quite a bit" against the Texans. Manning gets his first chance to showcase a new look where he'll mostly be lining up under center or in the pistol instead of working from the shotgun, where he's taken snaps for almost the entire time he's been in Denver. He'll be missing a main target Saturday with receiver Emmanuel Sanders sitting out with a sore hamstring.

It will be a homecoming for Kubiak, who was born in Houston and coached the Texans from 2006 until he was fired near the end of the 2013 season.

The Texans still haven't decided if Brian Hoyer or Ryan Mallett will start the season for them at quarterback. Hoyer started the first game, but coach Bill O'Brien said Mallett will get the nod this week. O'Brien said Thursday it remains an "even battle" and that he'll make a decision "eventually."

On defense, 2014 Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt could get his first work after sitting out the preseason opener, along with new nose tackle Vince Wilfork and veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph. But there's a chance Watt might just be a spectator again, with O'Brien saying "there will probably be a couple of guys who won't play in the game."
