ESPN Texans reporter Tania Ganguli believes S Shiloh Keo's roster spot is in danger.

Keo started 11 games at free safety for the Texans last season, registering 63 tackles and six pass breakups. He's appeared in 42 career games since being a 2011 fifth-round pick. The Texans upgraded their safety position in free agency, signing Chris Clemons and Kendrick Lewis to team with D.J. Swearinger.

The Texans are expected to carry three quarterbacks on their 53-man roster.

Case Keenum appears to be ahead of Tom Savage for backup duties, as Keenum was the No. 2 in the third preseason game and will start Thursday night. They'll both be Texans this year in support of shaky veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Texans placed S Lonnie Ballentine on injured reserve, ending his season.

Ballentine, Mr. Irrelevant as the 256th pick in May's draft, didn't play a single snap this preseason. He'll "redshirt" on I.R. as a rookie.

Jadeveon Clowney (undisclosed) is expected to play Week 1 against the Redskins.

Clowney exited a joint practice last week against the Broncos with an undisclosed injury. Coach Bill O'Brien would only say that the No. 1 overall pick is day-to-day. He missed the regular season tuneup this past weekend.

Texans placed G/T David Quessenberry on reserve/non-football illness list, ending his season.

The Texans announced Quessenberry was diagnosed with a life-threatening form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma earlier this year. We wish the 24-year-old a full and speedy recovery. If Quessenberry does recover and wants to try playing football again, the Texans will maintain his rights.

Coach Bill O'Brien indicated Sunday that Case Keenum is in danger of losing the Texans' backup quarterback job to rookie Tom Savage.

Fourth-round pick Savage led a 74-yard touchdown drive to win Houston's third preseason game against Denver. "I would say it’s pretty close," O'Brien said. "I think it’s pretty close. We’re discussing that right now." Keenum is 20-of-35 passing for 184 yards, no touchdowns and one interception with two sacks taken this preseason. Ryan Fitzpatrick is clearly locked in as the starter.

Coach Bill O'Brien suggested Sunday that Arian Foster (hamstring) could play in the Texans' preseason finale.

"It’s possible," said O'Brien. "We haven’t sat down and talked about that one yet. But, yeah, it’s possible." We'd take this with a grain of salt because O'Brien previously said Foster might play in Houston's second and third preseason games, but he participated in neither. O'Brien did promise Foster will be "ready to play" in the Texans' Week 1 clash with the Redskins.

Tom Savage completed 5-of-6 passes for 68 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's third preseason game against the Broncos.

Savage didn't enter until late in the fourth quarter. Case Keenum is the clear favorite for No. 2 duties behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. But Savage did lead the game-winning touchdown drive Saturday with a 31-yard strike to Ryan Griffin followed up by a successful two-point conversion to Travis Labhart. Through three preseason games, Savage is 11-of-14 for 90 yards and the one score.

C.J. Fiedorowicz caught two passes for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

Fiedorowicz started and caught both of his passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick, confirming he's ahead of Ryan Griffin for the in-line tight end job. Garrett Graham will be the "move" option. Through three preseason games, Fiedorowicz has three grabs for 27 yards and no touchdowns. He projects as a better real-life contributor than fantasy asset in Year 1 thanks to his blocking ability.
Aug 24 - 10:11 AM

DeVier Posey caught four passes for 21 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

All of Posey's grabs came in the second half from backup Case Keenum. The 2012 third-rounder is a poor bet to get on the fantasy radar this season as a backup receiver on a team that will run a lot of two-wide looks. Through three preseason games, Posey has six catches for 38 yards and one touchdown.

WR DeAndre Hopkins caught only two of his six targets for 18 yards in the Texans' third preseason game.

Camp reports on Hopkins have been glowing, but he has struggled to transfer that success to the field this preseason. Hopkins talent is unquestionable, but he is limited by the quarterback situation in Houston. Hopkins has four catches for 37 yards (9.25 YPR) through two preseason games.
Aug 24 - 12:35 AM

Andre Johnson caught three passes for 18 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

Ryan Fitzpatrick declined to even try to press the ball down the field. The good news is that Johnson's hamstring was not an issue and he remains a go-to guy one year removed from a 109-catch season. There's some value in his fourth-round ADP.
Aug 24 - 12:32 AM

Ryan Griffin caught five passes for 71 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

It's been an extremely quiet offseason for Griffin, an intriguing sixth-round pick in 2013. He didn't have any catches despite significant playing time in the first two preseason games, and ran exclusively with the deep reserves on Saturday. We did get a glimpse of what Griffin can do, however, as he caught a 31-yard touchdown from Tom Savage with 59 seconds left to set up a game-winning 2-point conversion. Griffin should stick on the final roster behind Garrett Graham and C.J. Fiedorowicz.
Aug 24 - 12:24 AM

Alfred Blue rushed nine times for 27 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

Arian Foster sat this one out. Blue got the start and shared time with Jonathan Grimes, just as he has all preseason. Through three games, the sixth-round rookie has 20 carries for 79 yards and three catches for 10 yards. He'd push for a committee role alongside Grimes if Foster misses regular-season time.
Aug 24 - 12:19 AM

Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 10-of-17 passes for 80 yards against the Broncos Saturday night.

Fitzpatrick has engineered three scoring drives through six quarters of work this exhibition season. He is clearly not the answer at quarterback, but neither are any of the other signal callers on the Texans' roster. Fitzpatrick is now 25-for-43 for 232 yards (5.4 YPA) with one touchdown and two interceptions this preseason.
