• Yates, Keenum get more reps as Schaub misses practice with excused absence

    Summary of 6 articles · Updated Aug 16, 2013
    With Matt Schaub out Monday and Tuesday morning , the Texans got a better look at both Yates and Keenum. Yates for No. 2 behind Matt Schaub, it’s about Keenum playing his way into it. Still, it is a huge risk. “It’s the same process that I go through every game, every practice, every time I’m going out there to take a snap,” said Keenum, who’s expected to take the field against the Dolphins after Schaub goes through limited reps. While I value his opinion, there is no way I would put Keenum at No. 2 this season. Case Keenum plans to keep everything the same: his focus, his mindset, his delivery on and off the field. Beck was cut shortly thereafter, but Keenum remained on the practice squad as he learned the intricacies of the Texans offense and how things change when you aren't in the shotgun constantly. Much like Matt Schaub, who didn’t miss a start last year, Jake Plummer took every snap the year before, with Danny Kanell as his backup.
