News: Keenum completed 8-of-17 passes for 70 yards with an interception in Thursday night's preseason loss to the 49ers. He finished with a 33.9 quarterback rating. Impact: Keenum finishes off an uninspiring preseason, but he was no worse than Tom Savage, who was 8-for-12 for 43 yards and an interception that was returned for a touchdown. Head coach Bill O'Brien said the quarterback play "wasn't very good," CSN Houston reports. Bottom line, nothing happened Thursday to alter the quarterback depth chart. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the starter with Keenum the backup by a small margin over Savage. If there's anything to take away, it's that Fitzpatrick's job is really, really safe.(RotoWire, )

News: Keenum will start Thursday's preseason finale, since regular-season starter Ryan Fitzpatrick probably won't play, HoustonTexans.com reports. Impact: Keenum starting Thursday is mostly newsworthy because it indicates he's still ahead of rookie Tom Savage as the Texans' No. 2 quarterback. With the fourth-rounder reportedly closing the gap on Keenum, Thursday's outing represents a significant game for both backups.(RotoWire, )

News: Keenum remains ahead of rookie Tom Savage on the depth chart, but Savage "closed the gap" after Saturday night's preseason win over Denver, according to coach Bill O'Brien, CSN Houston reports. Impact: Keenum moved the Texans on his first drive of the game that resulted in a field goal but also made some poor decisions and was lucky not to be picked off on a couple of throws. Meanwhile, Savage engineered a game-winning touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter.(RotoWire, )

News: Keenum struggled with his pocket presence during Saturday night's preseason win over Denver, CSN Houston report. He completed 11-of-18 throws for 74 yards and was sacked once. Impact: The numbers don't stand out as being particularly bad, but there are areas of quarterback play that don't show up in the box score. Continuing a trait that emerged last season, Keenum doesn't handle pressure well in the pocket. He also got lucky that some balls he threw into tight windows weren't picked-off.(RotoWire, )

News: Keenum, who was the third quarterback used in Saturday night's preseason game, is still ahead of rookie Tom Savage on the depth chart, CSN Houston reports. Impact: Coach Bill O'Brien was discussing the quarterbacks in the day-after press conference and noted that Savage is still "a little behind" Keenum. O'Brien said Keenum did a good job moving the team for the most part but feels the quarterback needs "to get rid of the ball quicker."(RotoWire, )

News: Keenum was the third quarterback used in Saturday night's preseason win over Atlanta. He completed 6-of-12 passes for 81 yards with an interception and a 37.2 quarterback rating. Impact: Head coach Bill O'Brien had rookie quarterback Tom Savage enter the game following starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, but that was a one-game thing. Keenum remains the top backup at this point. If it turns out that his play doesn't warrant the job, we suspect the Texans will bring in a veteran free agent to operate behind Fitzpatrick.(RotoWire, )
