HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans open the 2022 NFL regular season against the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 11 at NRG Stadium.

Coach Lovie Smith hasn't officially named Davis Mills as the starting quarterback, but it has all but been implied. Mills started 11 games last season for Houston and showed significant improvement in his last five games.

Houston added some weapons for Mills this offseason, including receiver John Metchie III in the second round of the draft. Metchie tore his left ACL in the SEC championship game in December, but he said after he was drafted that he'll be ready to play without "training wheels" in July.

Here's a look at the projection of the 53-man roster:

QUARTERBACK (2): Davis Mills, Kyle Allen
