Case Keenum ahead of Tom Savage in battle of backups
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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

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

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

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.

Texans' quarterback job is 'wide open'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Four quarterbacks have a chance to start the Texans' season opener, reports the Houston ChronicleRyan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and rookie Tom Savage are all in the running and the job is "wide open," coach Bill O'Brien said after the first day of OTAs.

"These guys are good guys, they’ve been fun to coach," O’Brien said. "(Quarterbacks coach) George Godsey’s done a great job with them. And I think they’ve enjoyed learning this offense and they’re competing. It looks like there’s good chemistry in the room, which is important in the quarterback room. I’ve been impressed with these guys, the way they work at it."
