It a surprising move to say the least, the Houston Texans will be going with third-string quarterback Case Keenum this week as Matt Schaub is out with a foot injury:





The Texans were losing by 25 points to the St. Louis Rams this past week when Schaub left the game, having completed 15/21 passes for 186 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Backup T.J. Yates finished the 38-13 loss for the Texans, but threw two interceptions and one of them was returned for a touchdown.

This apparently lead the team to skip over him and start Keenum instead.
