Case Keenum inactive, Matt Schaub to start for Texans

It wasn’t that long ago Matt Schaub was the Texans’ franchise quarterback.

Now he’s playing for the chance to draft his replacement.

The Texans deactivated quarterback Case Keenum because of a thumb injury, meaning Schaub will likely start his final game for the Texans against the Titans.

The Texans can clinch the top pick in the draft with a loss today, and Schaub’s season to date gives them a solid chance of that.
