After the hit, you can see Savage struggling to gather himself, nearly twitching on the ground.

Chris Nowinski, a former professional wrestler with the WWE and author of "Head Games: Football's Concussion Crisis", tweeted that he was "disgusted" by Savage's return to action.

Upon entering the game, Yates threw a touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins to narrow the gap against the 49ers. When Savage returned to the game moments later, it drew an angry response from the founding CEO of Concussion Legacy Foundation on Twitter. Backup quarterback T.J. Yates replaced Savage and finished out the half, leading the Texans on a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive.

Fans on social media implored the quarterback to remain out of the game. Before the Texans' next offensive series, a team official held on to Savage's jersey and arm as he tried to go on to the field. He then could be seen arguing with that person and the team's trainer before being escorted to the locker room. Garoppolo's 334 passing yards marked his career high and first 300-yard passing game.

Yates connected with Hopkins for a 7-yard touchdown on Houston's next drive, but the kick failed to leave Houston down 10-9.

There have not been many bright spots since Deshaun Watson went on the IR with a knee injury.

Gould hit a 52-yard field goal earlier in the game to tie the score.
