AJ McCarron has cast removed from his hand

AJ McCarron (thumb) had the cast removed from his hand and threw during warmups prior to Thursday's preseason finale against the Rams, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fantasy Impact

McCarron missed the preseason with his thumb injury but should be ready to go for Week 1 to back up Deshaun Watson at QB. McCarron has passed for 928 career yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed for two scores in his NFL career.

AJ McCarron could miss the preseason with injury

Texans QB AJ McCarron (thumb) could miss the entire preseason with a thumb injury.

Fantasy Impact

McCarron suffered the thumb injury during a practice against the Packers. If McCarron will indeed miss the remainder of the preseason, the Texans will have to sign a quarterback off the street.

AJ McCarron signing with Texans

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Texans are signing AJ McCarron as their backup quarterback.

Fantasy Impact

McCarron will replace Brandon Weeden as Deshaun Watson's backup. The 28-year-old is unlikely to ever get another starting job in the NFL.

A.J. McCarron sees action in fourth quarter of loss to 49ers

A.J. McCarron completed 1-of-3 passes for 8 yards in the Raiders' 34-3 loss to the 49ers Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

McCarron entered the game in the fourth quarter with starter Derek Carr having been sacked seven times in the contest. He threw just three passes and was sacked once himself in the loss to San Francisco.

A.J. McCarron traded to Raiders

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Bills have traded QB A.J. McCarron to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Following a horrific showing at training camp and in the preseason -- he was outplayed by both Josh Allen and Nathan Peterman -- McCarron finds himself with his third team in two seasons. He will backup Derek Carr in Oakland. While he is an upgrade over Connor Cook and E.J.Manuel, it isn't by much.
