Houston (CBS Houston)- The Houston Texans have yet to name their starting quarterback as they prepare to take on the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Sunday afternoon.

With starting quarterback Matt Schaub not participating in Wednesday’s practice due to a leg injury, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum had their chance to take reps with the first-team.

“I split them right down the middle,” Kubiak said. “They both practiced pretty good. I thought we had a good start to the week.”

Yates is in his third season and is 15-of-22 for 113 yards, 2 INTs with a 42.4 passer rating.
This is Keenum’s first season as he was undrafted and spent the entire 2012 season on the Texans practice squad.

“We’re going to run our offense,” Kubiak said in response to if he was going to caterer to one specific quarterback. “They both work with what we do.”

Kubiak said the two quarterbacks, “did good” Wednesday morning and that naming of starting quarterback will be “a late week decision.”

“I think they both move well,” Kubiak said on both quarterbacks. “I believe in both of them, I think they both move and they understand our offense. I have to see what’s best for our football team.”

No matter which quarterback is under center for the Texans, they’ll have a challenging Sunday as the Kansas City Chiefs leads the NFL with sacks on 12.1 percent of passing plays.
