Texans Notes: QBs, Reed, Clabo, Posey

The Texans have one of the more interesting quarterback situations in the NFL this year, as they elected to pass on taking a quarterback in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft, despite it being a pressing need on a team that made the playoffs in 2012. After trading Matt Schaub to the Raiders, and trading backup T.J. Yates to the Falcons, the team has newly signed veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick penciled in as the starter. Behind Fitzpatrick, they have fourth-round pick Tom Savage and Case Keenum, who showed flashes in some playing time last year. While Fitzpatrick is the starter for now, Savage has impressed despite being raw, writes Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com. While Savage and Keenum are battling for the backup job, she wouldn’t be surprised to see Savage take the field at some point this season, if Fitzpatrick struggles with performance or injuries.

Here are some other notes from around the Texans:
