Case Keenum is a Texans again at least until the end of the season. Keenum, released back during the Mallett trade was signed by the Rams to their practice squad. With Mallett out due to a torn pectoral muscle, Ryan Fitzpatrick down with a broken leg and Tom Savage, the Texans 4th round draft pick this year suffering a possibly serious knee injury the only active QB not injured is Thad Lewis. This information was first reported by the Houston Chronicle.

Well it isn’t a shock the Texans would reach for someone who knows their system. However I think the way Keenum was treated by Bill O’Brien was kinda rough, but that’s life in the NFL. Meet the expectations of the powers that be or you’re looking for a new a team. Here’s hoping Keenum starts and beats his old coach in Gary Kubiak, now the offensive coordinator with the Ravens and shows Bill O’Brien he’s got talent. Keenum’s been a fan favorite for many Houston fans but his college success has yet to translate to an NFL win.
Are you ready for another round of Keenum under center? Are the Texans? I say give the kid a shot, but something tells me that Lewis will get the nod, and Keenum will be on the sidelines as a last resort. There exists the possibility they are making this move out of an abundance of precaution because that hit on Savage was, brutal. The replay hurts to watch. Savage might just bounce back.
