If Texans coach Bill O’Brien left the door open on his quarterback rotation yesterday, he closed it today.
According to Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle, O’Brien had a one-word answer when asked if Ryan Fitzpatrick would remain the starter.
“Yes,” was the one, which represents half the number of interceptions Fitzpatrick threw in the preseason opener.
O’Brien said that rookie Tom Savage and holdover Case Keenum would continue to compete for the backup job.
That’s not necessarily good news for the Texans, as their depth chart at quarterback continues to resemble that one item on the grocery list you forgot to cross off, which wrecks an otherwise good recipe.
