HOUSTON (AP) — Quarterback C.J. Stroud remains in the concussion protocol and could miss a second straight game Sunday when Houston hosts Cleveland in a key AFC matchup.

Coach DeMeco Ryans said Wednesday that Stroud was doing better, but that he didn’t know when he’d be cleared to play.

“We’re going through the protocol and each person, each concussion is different,” Ryans said. “So, it takes a different amount of time for each person to heal just like with anything else. So, he’s just going through the protocol just like everyone else has whenever they’ve been in the concussion protocol and … the most important thing is making sure C.J. is healthy and when he’s ready to go, he’ll be ready to go, and I’ll let you guys know.”

Stroud was injured Dec. 10 in a 30-6 loss to the Jets when his head bounced off the turf after taking a hit with about 6½ minutes left in the fourth quarter.

With Stroud out last week, the Texans started third-string quarterback Case Keenum over Davis Mills, the team’s starter for the two seasons before Stroud was drafted.

Political Cartoons

The Texans might have to rely on the 35-year-old Keenum again this week against the Browns (9-5), who are among several teams vying with Houston for a playoff spot.

Stroud’s absence is a big blow for a team trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2019. The second overall pick is the biggest reason for Houston’s improvement this season and has thrown for 3,631 yards and 20 touchdowns with just five interceptions.

Quarterback C.J. Stroud of the Houston Texans is still in the concussion protocol and may not play in the upcoming game against the Cleveland Browns. Coach DeMeco Ryans mentioned that Stroud is improving, but his clearance to play is uncertain. The team is following the necessary protocol, as each concussion case is unique and requires different recovery times. Stroud sustained the injury during a game against the New York Jets on December 10th. Last week, with Stroud out, the Texans started third-string quarterback Case Keenum instead of Davis Mills, who was the team’s starter prior to Stroud’s arrival. This week’s game against the Browns is crucial for both teams’ playoff aspirations. Stroud’s absence is a significant setback for the Texans, as he has been instrumental in their improvement this season, throwing for 3,631 yards, 20 touchdowns, and only five interceptions.
