Case Keenum said he hopes to throw with Andre Johnson this summer before training camp.
Nobody with the Texans has seen Johnson in a couple months. Keenum plans to give him a call, so both players can stay sharp before camp opens. Neither Ryan Fitzpatrick nor Tom Savage, the other two quarterbacks in Houston, has ever played with Johnson. It remains to be seen whether Johnson plans to show up for training camp. Keenum is competing with Savage for backup duties. Jun 26 - 9:23 AM

Speaking Monday, coach Bill O'Brien said the Texans could enter training camp with only three quarterbacks.

That means one of Case Keenum or T.J. Yates could be out, as Ryan Fitzpatrick and rookie Tom Savage aren't going anywhere. Keenum was mostly ineffective in eight starts last season, but at least has big-play ability. Yates has attempted only 32 regular-season passes since filling in for Matt Schaub in 2011.
Jun 9 - 2:34 PM

Case Keenum lost an average of 10.58 yards on his 19 sacks this season, the highest for any quarterback with at least 200 passing attempts.

That's four more yards than the other 37 quarterbacks who attempted at least 200 passes averaged as a collective. The next highest was Matt McGloin, who lost an average of 8.83 yards on his six sacks. Keenum's staggeringly high number is indicative of a player who didn't know what to do in the face of pressure, and took sacks even after he scrambled to create time. Keenum has undeniable big-play ability, but lacks the overall polish to be more than a No. 2.

Case Keenum (thumb) is inactive for Week 17 against the Titans, and Matt Schaub will start at quarterback.

Keenum has been battling a sprained right (throwing) thumb for the past couple weeks, so Schaub will make what likely will be his final start as a member of the Texans. Also inactive for the Texans are RB Dennis Johnson (hip), WR DeVier Posey, FB Toben Opurum, OL Alex Kupper, OL Cody White, and LB Joe Mays.

The Texans are leaving their Week 17 starting quarterback up to a game-time decision.

Houston is closing out the season against Tennessee. Case Keenum practiced on a limited basis Friday, but is listed as questionable with a thumb injury. "He was a little sore," interim coach Wade Phillips said of Keenum following Friday's practice. "He's going to be a gametime decision. We're going to wait and see how Case is. It could be a situation where he wouldn't be able to start but he'd be the backup." If Keenum doesn't get the nod, Matt Schaub will.

Case Keenum (thumb) threw the ball a "normal amount" in Thursday's practice, and will start Sunday's finale if healthy.

He was officially "full" on Thursday. Barring a setback, Keenum should be under center against the Titans as he auditions to be Houston's No. 2 quarterback next season.

Case Keenum (thumb) remains day to day.

Interim coach Wade Phillips didn't sound terribly optimistic about Keenum's status at Monday's presser, going as far as to hint that T.J. Yates might get the start against Tennessee. We'll likely know Keenum's status by Wednesday, when the Texans return to practice.

Case Keenum (thumb) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 16 game against the Broncos.

Matt Schaub will get the start. Keenum sprained his right (throwing) thumb against the Colts last Sunday. He's been absolutely brutal since throwing seven touchdowns to zero interceptions over his first three starts. Keenum has an 0-8 record as a starter and hit "rock bottom" last week. Schaub could very well close out the season before getting the ax from the Texans in the offseason.

Case Keenum has been diagnosed with a sprained right (throwing) thumb, and is questionable for Week 16.

The Texans are awaiting MRI results. "He'll be evaluated, but it's a concern," were the words of interim coach Wade Phillips on Monday. Phillips also said that Keenum hit "rock bottom" in Sunday's ugly loss to the Colts, but implied he'll be under center for Week 16 if he can get medically cleared. The Texans don't need to see any more from Matt Schaub, and have apparently determined T.J. Yates isn't worthy of another shot.

Interim coach Wade Phillips said he never considered removing Case Keenum from Sunday's loss at Indy.

Keenum was brutal once again, falling to 0-8 as an NFL starter while throwing for just 168 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Matt Schaub could probably perform better, but there's more upside in using the final two games to see if Keenum can be a long-term backup. At this point, we're very skeptical. The Texans have to face a Broncos team coming off a loss in Week 16.

Case Keenum completed 18-of-34 passes for 168 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in Houston's 25-3, Week 15 loss to the Colts.

Keenum was simply horrendous, taking four sacks, making late throws and generally appearing completely inept. A rash of drops from his receivers didn't help, but Keenum didn't have the looks of an NFL quarterback. Both of his interceptions were embarrassingly under-thrown, late passes he should never have attempted. He was clearly baited into the second by the defense. Keenum will finish out the year under center in the interest of evaluation, but isn't looking like a realistic candidate for Houston's 2014 job. Keenum won't be a recommended QB2 for Week 16 against the Broncos.

Case Keenum is listed on the Week 15 injury report with a left (non-throwing) shoulder injury, but is practicing in full.

Keenum is good to go for Sunday's game against the Colts. Still struggling against the blitz and adjusting to life without play-caller Gary Kubiak, Keenum is a low-end QB2 for Week 15.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 05:55:00 PM

The Texans announced Case Keenum will start in Week 15 against the Colts.

Coach Gary Kubiak said after Thursday night's loss to the Jaguars that Matt Schaub was an "unbelievable pro" and would be considered for the starting job for the rest of the season. Kubiak was then fired Friday morning. The 2-11 Texans are in full-blown evaluation mode, and it makes no sense to give Schaub anymore starts. His time is likely done in Houston, as well. Keenum has struggled mightily in recent weeks. He won't be a recommended fantasy option.

Case Keenum was benched midway through the third quarter of Houston's Week 14 game against the Jaguars.

Keenum was yanked for Matt Schaub, who immediately led the Texans on a touchdown drive. Keenum wasn't Matt Flynn-level bad before getting pulled — he was easily out-playing Chad Henne — but was again struggling to recognize the blitz, putting the Texans in multiple 3rd-and-longs. Keenum completed 16-of-29 passes for 159 yards, a touchdown and an interception. His pick was an embarrassingly bad pass on the move near the end of the first half. Had the Patriots blitzed Keenum more in Week 13, it's possible he wouldn't even have seen the field this evening. Now benched twice in four games, Keenum could return to the pine for good in Week 15.

Case Keenum completed 15-of-30 passes for 272 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception in Houston's 34-31, Week 13 loss to the Patriots, adding a rushing touchdown.

Keenum bounced back from his nightmarish Week 12 effort, but mostly because the Pats dialed up oddly few blitzes. Keenum is perhaps the worst quarterback in the league against the rush (Geno Smith notwithstanding), so it was a surprising decision from Bill Belichick's defense. Keenum got his connection with Andre Johnson back in working order, finding his No. 1 wideout eight times for 121 yards. Johnson even dropped two passes. It was a good game, but Keenum is likely to come crashing back down to earth in Week 14 against the Jaguars. Jacksonville creamed Keenum in Houston in Week 12, and now the sides will square off in Florida.
