Quarterback Case Keenum will return to the Houston Texans after Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a season-ending leg injury.
The Houston Texans have been whittled down to their third-string quarterback after Ryan Fitzpatrick went down with a season-ending leg injury.
Rookie Tom Savage filled in for Fitzpatrick and naturally struggled before suffering a knee injury at the end of the game, and he will have an MRI.
Just when the Texans’ quarterback situation couldn’t get any worse, they find themselves in emergency mode. They acted by signing Case Keenum, who was their starting quarterback for part of last season.
Keenum made eight starts for the Texans last season, so his experience will come in handy if the Texans decide to put him back in if Savage’s injury is serious. He was cut by the Texans before the 2014 season began, and he has been claimed off the St. Louis Rams’ practice squad.
The Texans will not be making the playoffs as they hold a 7-7 record, so they may decide to give Keenum another audition as their potential starting quarterback.
Ryan Mallett is expected to be the future in Houston by many fans though.
