Texans list Andre Johnson, Arian Foster as probable for Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Texas listed wide receiver Andre Johnson (concussion) and running back Arian Foster (hip) as probable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

Both Johnson and Foster were able to fully participate in Friday’s practice.

The following players are also listed as probable: Tyson Clabo, Brian Cushing, Akeem Dent, Kareem Jackson, Johnathan Joseph, Whitney Mercilus, DeVier Posey and Jeff Tarpinian .

The Texans listed Garrett Graham (ankle), Mike Mohamed (concussion), Tom Savage (knee) and Xavier Su’a-Filo (back) as out.

The Texans are 5-point underdogs.


Texans to decide between Thad Lewis, Case Keenum to start Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) The Texans announced that Tom Savage will miss Week 16 against the Ravens due to a knee injury he suffered on the penultimate play of Sunday's loss against the Colts. The loss of Savage, Ryan Fitzpatrick (broken tibia) and Ryan Mallett (pectoral) means that the starting job will come down to Thad Lewis and newly-signed Case Keenum, coach Bill O'Brien told reporters, per the team's official website.

Lewis was signed to the 53-man active roster on Nov. 26, when Mallett landed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. He was the No. 3 quarterback on the depth chart entering Sunday's game against Indianapolis before Fitzpatrick went down with a season-ending injury. Second-stringer Tom Savage took over for Fitzpatrick but hurt his knee late in the game. As a result, the team signed Case Keenum on Sunday night, who played eight games in 2013 with the Texans and is familiar with the offensive.

"He'd been in our system not long ago," O'Brien said of Keenum, per the Houston Chronicle. "A lot of the things we're doing are what we were doing. He's a bright guy."


Texans rule QB Tom Savage (knee) out for Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien told reporters Monday that rookie quarterback Tom Savage will not start Week 16 against Baltimore because of a knee injury, per the team's official website. According to the Houston Chronicle, Savage may miss the final two games of the season.

Savage relieved Ryan Fitzpatrick (broken tibia) and sustained the injury on the penultimate play of Sunday's loss to Indianapolis. He completed 10 of his 19 passes for 127 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.

Savage underwent an MRI on his knee after the game, but O'Brien did not reveal the results of his exam. The Texans will now turn to Thad Lewis or newly-signed Case Keenum to start against the Ravens.


Report: Texans to sign quarterback Case Keenum


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) With the Texans down to one healthy quarterback on their roster, the team will sign quarterback Case Keenum, reports NFL.com.

After quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was lost due to a broken leg, backup Tom Savage stepped in and was hurt on the second-to-last play of the game and will undergo an MRI on his knee.

In eight starts for the Texans in 2013, Keenum threw for 1,760 yards with nine touchdowns and six interceptions.


Texans QB Tom Savage can't pull off win vs. Colts Week 15


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Texans rookie quarterback Tom Savage completed 10 of his 19 passes for 127 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in his team's 17-10 loss to the Colts in Week 15.

Savage entered the game in relief of Ryan Fitzpatrick, who fractured his leg early in the game, and he wasn't able to provide a spark to the offense, with Houston relying on the rushing game. His interception didn't come until the team's final drive as he tried to complete a long pass to put his team in position to tie.

Savage is the favorite to line up under center in Week 16 against the Ravens, though the team could instead turn to Thad Lewis.


Texans QB Tom Savage all but set as backup for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Bill O'Brien is "leaning towards" choosing Texans rookie Tom Savage over newly acquired veteran Thad Lewis as the backup quarterback to Ryan Fitzpatrick for the Sunday game against Tennessee, the Houston Chronicle has reported.

"It's very difficult to ask Thaddeus to come in here and pick up on this offense in three days and be the No. 2 guy Sunday," O'Brien said. "Tom has improved a lot. I think this week has been his best week of throwing the ball. He definitely has a grasp of our offense."

The promotion has Savage smiling, but he's not getting complacent.

"Whether your're two or three, you're always preparing to be the guy at some point," he said. "Nothing really changes for me, just keep working and getting better."


Texans QBs Thad Lewis, Tom Savage battle for backup role


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Bill O'Brien has announced that the Texans will have a competition between just-signed veteran Thad Lewis and rookie Tom Savage for the backup quarterback role behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The winner will be determined in practice this week.


O'Brien: Mallett still being evaluated, won't name QB for Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday quarterback Ryan Mallett is still being evaluated and would not confirm the report Mallett is expected to miss the rest of the season with a torn right pectoral, according to The Houston Chronicle.

O'Brien said he will have "more to report" on Mallett's status later in the week. O'Brien would not name a starting quarterback for Week 13 against the Titans. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Savage are the two other quarterbacks on the roster.

"I'm trying to get ready for Tennessee," O'Brien said. "Whether (Mallett is) there or not, the next guy's gonna step up, whoever it is."

Bill O'Brien not ruling out change in QB rotation


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien did not rule out a change in the quarterback rotation when asked about it Sunday, reports Pro Football Talk. Starter Ryan Fitzpatrick went 6 of 14 for 55 yards with two interceptions in Saturday's 32-0 loss to Arizona, while backups Case Keenum and Tom Savage combined to go 5 of 8 for 43 yards.

"I think you’re always thinking about what you can do to make the team better," O’Brien said. "So any time you have a chance to review things and regroup a little bit on a day off like it is today, as a head coach, you’re always thinking about things that can make the team better, whether that’s a change in the depth chart, a change in a scheme, a change of a position of a player, whatever it may be. We’ll continue to discuss that today."

Case Keenum ahead of Tom Savage in battle of backups


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) In the battle to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick, quarterback Case Keenum is getting more reps than rookie Tom Savage, reports the Houston Chronicle. Coach Bill O'Brien said Savage will get a legitimate shot.

"Tommy gets a lot of reps on his own because we do a two-spot drill (with two quarterbacks throwing at the same time to different receivers) early in practice," O'Brien said. “It balances itself out. We’ll take however many practices we need to determine who’s the backup quarterback. We’ll take our time with that."


Ryan Fitzpatrick named Texans starter


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien named Ryan Fitzpatrick the starting quarterback, the official team website reports Tuesday.

Fitzpatrick was expected to battle rookie Tom Savage for the job in training camp, but O'Brien has apparently seen enough to trust Fitzpatrick with the role now.

"He's a guy that earned the job," O'Brien said.

Savage will now compete with Case Keenum and T.J. Yates for the No. 2 job. O'Brien said "I don't know" when asked if he will carry two or three quarterbacks on the roster this season.


Texans continue to evaluate quarterbacks


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) The Texans' quarterbacks -- all four of them between Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tom Savage, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum -- continue to be a work in progress, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Coach Bill O'Brien said that Fitzpatrick, the expected Week 1 starter, had a "decent offseason" and has done a good job of picking a new offense. But O'Brien said the quarterback competition is wide open.

"T.J. and Case ... they've also done a good job," O'Brien said. "Savage is a rookie. He's a little bit behind. But you can see he's got some tools. He can throw the football and he works extremely hard."

The backup position is expected to come down to Keenum and Yates. But O'Brien didn't rule out Savage for the spot.

"I don't know. We'll see. We'll let it play out a little bit," O'Brien said.


Texans could cut a quarterback


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) The Texans may enter training camp with only three quarterbacks on the roster, coach Bill O’Brien said Monday per the Houston Chronicle.

Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick is the Texans' expected Week 1 starter and signed a two-year, $7 million deal this offseason. Rookie Tom Savage was a fourth-round pick and is being groomed by O’Brien to eventually take over the position.

If the Texans trim their roster either T.J. Yates or Case Keenum is expected to be the odd man out.
