A.J. McCarron Likely To Miss Preseason

Houston Texans quarterback A.J. McCarron suffered a thumb injury during Houston's joint practice with the Green Bay Packers and will likely miss the preseason. McCarron's spot as Houston's backup quarterback this season is safe, but the injury does have preseason DFS implications, as Joe Webb will likely have to play extended snaps in Thursday's game. Houston only has three quarterbacks on their roster right now, so unless a move is made before Thursday night to add someone, expect a couple of series for Deshaun Watson followed by Joe Webb playing the rest of the game.

Texans Sign AJ McCarron As Backup

The Houston Texans signed free-agent quarterback AJ McCarron to a one-year, $3 million deal on Tuesday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. He'll serve as the backup to Deshaun Watson in 2019. The former Alabama quarterback has played in just 12 NFL games, including seven for the Bengals in 2015 when he took over for the injured Andy Dalton. McCarron has completed 64 percent of his passes for 928 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. He won't be on the fantasy radar.

Raiders Trade For Quarterback AJ McCarron

The Oakland Raiders have traded for quarterback AJ McCarron of the Buffalo Bills. McCarron was traded from the Bengals to the Bills in the offseason, but with the Bills drafting Josh Allen, McCarron was on his way out. McCarron will likely be the backup, in what is now a crowded position. EJ Manuel and Connor Cook are both still on the team, but final cuts have yet to be announced by the Raiders.
