Let’s start out today by visiting our friends at House of Houston, a Fansided site covering all aspects of the Houston sports scene.

House of Houston editor Yoni Pollak wrote about the play of Texans quarterback Case Keenum against the Jacksonville Jaguars (a game the Texans lost 13-6):

"“Quarterback : F — 18/34, 169 yards, 0 TD, 1 INT. Easily his worse game of the season. Missed throws, bad sacks, no touchdowns. Just not a good day for Keenum.”"

I can’t say I disagree with House of Houston on the grade of Keenum, because if he wants to be the future of this team, well he better start improving his overall play and soon.

The official Houston Texans website gave an update on Owen Daniels. Texans writer Deepi Sidhu wrote:

"“(Owen) Daniels began running on the anti-gravity treadmill earlier this month. The next step would be to run on the practice field.”"

If he does come back, it really doesn’t make that much of a difference this season. Maybe it will be best for everyone if they just shut Daniels down for the remainder of 2013, just to not risk any more injuries with the veteran tight end in a lost season.

Just a thought.

The Houston Chronicle wrote about how head coach Gary Kubiak is sticking with Case Keenum, despite his 0-5 record as a starting QB.

Brian T. Smith wrote in the article:

"“Case Keenum hasn’’t played like an NFL starting quarterback the last three weeks. But he’’ll continue to be the Texans’’, coach Gary Kubiak said Monday.”"

The Florida Times-Union wrote about how the Jaguars did their job against Andre Johnson.

Hays Carlyon wrote:

"“The defensive effort was particularly satisfying for Jaguars cornerback Alan Ball. He played for the Texans last season, but only started one game in the 11 he played.”"
