After gingerly pulling up in the end zone and limping off the field following a second-quarter touchdown run, Houston Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor left Sunday's game at the start of the second half with a hamstring injury.

Taylor was later ruled out for the remainder of the contest.

Rookie third-round draft pick Davis Mills from Stanford took over under center.

Taylor had been extremely effective in the game at Cleveland, completing 10 of 11 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for a 15-yard touchdown as the Texans and Browns were tied 14-14 at the end of the first half.
