Neil Schwartz, the agent for Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage, said coach Bill O’Brien’s decision to bench his client “makes no sense” Wednesday in an interview on PFT Live.

“I’m still trying to figure this out,” Schwartz said (h/t Gabrielle McMillen of Sporting News). “Thirty-one plays and you’re getting benched? It makes no sense.”

Savage, 27, was benched at halftime of the Texans’ 29-7 season-opening loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. First-round pick Deshaun Watson came in and played the entire second half.
