The Houston Texans benched quarterback Brock Osweiler in Week 15, but the officials benched his replacement, Tom Savage, on Sunday.

Savage was slow to get up after a first-half quarterback sneak, and an official immediately gestured that he needed to leave the field to be placed in concussion protocol. Savage left for the locker room, was evaluated and then cleared to return. In his absence, the Texans had to turn back to Osweiler in a meaningless season finale against the Titans, and Savage remained on the sideline for the rest of the first half even though he was given the OK to come back.
