The Houston Texans are reportedly making a considerably stunning resolution concerning who will play quarterback in Week 15 rather than the injured C.J. Stroud.
The Texans will begin veteran Case Keenum and never Davis Mills on Sunday in opposition to the Tennessee Titans, in accordance with Aaron Wilson of KPRC in Houston. Keenum took the vast majority of first-team reps in follow this week, although Mills has been listed because the backup quarterback all season.
The Texans worth Keenum’s intensive expertise with the group in the course of a playoff race and are additionally hoping he can present a spark for the offense. Mills was the one who changed Stroud late in final week’s 30-6 loss to the New York Jets, however Stroud’s harm got here so late within the sport that there was no manner something significant may very well be taken from Mills’ reps.
Going with Keenum over Mills definitely comes with danger. Keenum has not began a sport since 2021 and has not even appeared in a sport for the Texans this season. He did go 2-0 for the Browns as a fill-in in 2021, so the Texans are hoping for some comparable stage of success right here.
Stroud, the Texans’ star rookie, remained in concussion protocol through the week and will be unable to play Sunday. It feels like he needs to be again for Week 16, so Keenum’s alternative will possible be a one-off.
