Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett was named the team's backup quarterback, with rookie QB Tom Savage the No. 3 quarterback.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, and this is who you'll see at the Texans' controls if Ryan Fitzpatrick pulls a Matt Schaub and gets himself benched.

The Houston Texans have acquired QB Ryan Mallett from the New England Patriots, in exchange for a sixth-round pick, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Mallett, a 2011 third-round pick who's attempted 4 regular-season passes, is a lot closer to seeing the field now that he has Ryan Fitzpatrick in front of him instead of Tom Brady. Fourth-round pick Tom Savage is the only other QB on the roster as Case Keenum has been released.

New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett (undisclosed) missed his second straight practice Monday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Mallett's injury, coupled with his shaky outing in the exhibition season opener, will make it tough for the Patriots to trade him for anything similar to what they received for Matt Cassel a few years back.
