With Deshaun Watson out for the rest of the 2017 season, the Houston Texans are weighing the prospect of signing Colin Kaepernick.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported Sunday that some inside the Texans are wondering whether Kaepernick would be a good replacement for the injured Watson.

Watson tore his ACL in practice earlier in the week, which leaves Tom Savage, Matt McGloin and T.J. Yates as the Texans' three remaining quarterbacks.

Kaepernick would be an obvious option for Houston to target in free agency as a replacement for Watson. He has started 58 games over the previous five seasons, and he's a stylistic facsimile for Watson.
