The Houston Texans meet the Carolina Panthers in an NFL preseason game on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 (8/9/17) at NGR Stadium in Houston, Texas.
The Texans are led by former Rutgers quarterback Tom Savage, while the Carolina Panthers are led by quarterback Cam Newton, who isn’t expected.
Newton, who had surgery in March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff, hasn’t thrown in practice for nine days, so the Panthers holding him out of Wednesday’s game was expected. Derek Anderson will start, followed by Joe Webb and Garrett Gilbert.
