Texans' Tom Savage: Efficient in brief apperance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage completed three of four passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Head coach Bill O'Brien said Savage is ahead of Brandon Weeded for the backup quarterback job, and the 2014 fourth-rounder may have locked up the role with Sunday's impressive (albeit brief) performance. Weeden's fate will likely depend on whether the Texans want to keep a third quarterback.

Texans' Tom Savage: Houston's second quarterback
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Savage entered Saturday's game against the Saints following starter Brock Osweiler and completed seven of 12 passes for 75 yards with two sacks in preseason Week 2.

Houston's newly minted No. 2 signal-caller had a more difficult time of it Saturday than he did in the opener last week, but Savage did nothing to lose his spot as Osweiler's primary backup. He has more time in the system than Brandon Weeden and, as such, is being groomed to pilot the Texans should anything untoward happen to Osweiler.

Texans' Tom Savage: Labeled backup quarterback by head coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Bill O'Brien has labeled Savage as the backup quarterback ahead of Brandon Weeden, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

There is still plenty of time for Weeden to potentially dethrone Savage as the Texans' backup quarterback, but Savage has really impressed during training camp, throwing two touchdown passes in the preseason opener against the 49ers. O'Brien stated that Savage "has really improved," and that, paired with the fact that Brandon Weeden is 32 years old, makes Savage a favorite to win the backup quarterback job.

Texans' Tom Savage: Second quarterback in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage was the second quarterback to play in Sunday's preseason opening win over the 49ers. He completed 14-of-24 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns.

All the caveats about playing against second- and third-teamers apply, but it was a positive showing for the third-year quarterback, who missed all of 2015 with a shoulder injury. He's competing for the backup job with Brandon Weeden, who mopped up the final five minutes of the game.

Texans' Tom Savage: Quicker reads, decisive throws
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Savage is displaying a quicker release during the initial days training camp, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Savage, who's entering his third year in the system, has been identifying his reads in more rapid fashion and making decisive, accurate throws. The Pitt graduate missed all of 2015 with a shoulder injury and is competing with Brandon Weeden to back up Brock Osweiler.
