The Texans might have to make a change at quarterback Week 16 vs. Denver, but it won't be a performance-based decision. Interim coach Wade Phillips revealed Monday quarterback Case Keenum underwent an MRI for a sprained right thumb, and the team will have to "wait and see" if Keenum will be able to start Sunday.
In addition to tight end Garrett Graham, who is out with a hamstring injury, the Texans' list of inactives for Week 15 at Indianapolis includes quarterback T.J. Yates (back), defensive back Jawanza Starling, offensive lineman Alex Kupper, offensive lineman Andrew Gardner, offensive lineman Cody White and defensive lineman Tim Jamison. Starling, Kupper, Gardner, White and Jamison are all healthy scratches.
The rookie year of Ravens defensive lineman Kapron Lewis-Moore will be a washout. The team announced Wednesday that he will not be activated off the reserved/non football injury list after being cleared to practice three weeks ago. The sixth-round pick had been out since tearing his ACL in the 2013 BCS Championship.
