Sam Ehlinger will start at quarterback in the Colts' season finale on Sunday against the Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Stadium, interim head coach Jeff Saturday said on Monday.

Quarterback Nick Foles sustained a rib injury in the second quarter of the Colts' Week 17 loss to the New York Giants, and that injury will keep him out for Week 18. Matt Ryan will back up Ehlinger, Saturday said.

Ehlinger tagged in for Foles and completed nine of 14 passes for 60 yards with his first career touchdown against the Giants at MetLife Stadium.

The Colts will face the Texans on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The kickoff time is still TBD and will be announced some time after Monday night's Bengals-Bills game.
