Texans fall to 4-9 with loss to 49ers

Texans starting quarterback Tom Savage went to the locker room to be evaluated for an injury and was replaced by backup T.J. Yates.

Time to throw another flag on the NFL's sideline concussion protocol.

Hard hits are not unusual in the National Football League, but the one Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage took Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers was particularly scary. However, Savage returned to the game and continued playing, a move that many viewers believe was negligent.

He, Tank Carradine, Solomon Thomas, Cassius Marsh and Elvis Dumervil will play defensive end today. He remained in the tent for less than three minutes, per ESPN.com, and returned to the game on the following series. The Texans have yet to release an update on Savage's status for the remainder of Sunday's game. Savage could be seen arguing with the team official and the Texans' trainer before being taken to the locker rooom. He left the game in the second quarter of play after suffering a concussion. Last season, Savage had been sidelined for a concussion before entering the game to take a kneel down, prior to exiting the game again. But a Texans official grabbed Savage's arm and prevented him from going back on the field. Yet he re-entered the game.
