Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates suffered shoulder injury last weekend against the Tennessee Titans, but he is likely to return back to action this Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals at Reliant Stadium.

The 24-year-old T.J. Yates hopes to recover soon from shoulder injury and expecting to be starter into the franchise’s first playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Reliant Stadium on Saturday 7th January. Yates, who has started the last five games of the 2011 season, but contused his left shoulder last Saturday against the Tennessee Titans in the first quarter. T.J. Yates has been drafted by the Houston Texans in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, after attempting college football at North Carolina.

The 6 ft 3 inch Yates has first taken over the starting role in the wake of season-ending injuries to quarterbacks Matt Schaub with right foot and Matt Leinart with broken left collarbone. Yates has played crucial role in the victories over the Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals to clinch the AFC South title. Later, Yates, who had struggled in the next two games, where he has played only one series on Sunday before he was, injured Tennessee Titans.

Coach Gary Kubiak said he is still having enough confidence to play Yates over veteran Jake Delhomme and he is doing well at the moment in practice. He added Yates is one of the best players in Texans team and Delhomme, who has signed out of retirement in November, while he compiled 18 of 28 passes for 211 yards.
