HOUSTON – (CBS HOUSTON):  Houston Texans fans will get their first look in person at Case Keenum as the starting quarterback for their team this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts at Reliant Stadium.

On Monday, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak named Keenum the starter for the second straight game for the Texans who are sitting at 2-5 and scrambling to try and salvage their season.  The decision was made last week and Case found out he would be the starter last Tuesday before the team got some rest on their by week.

“Just a decision I made based on what I saw last week with Case and him taking advantage of an opportunity,” Kubiak said Monday. “And I want to see it move forward.”

The University of Houston product started his first NFL game in Kansas City two weeks ago and barely lost, 17-16 to the only undefeated team left in the NFL.

Keenum threw for 272 yards and a touchdown while controlling the offense despite losing his number one running back, Arian Foster, and having limited play from number two running back Ben Tate.

Case got the start against Kansas City after incumbent starter Matt Schaub hurt his ankle in the Texans last home game against the Rams and missed the Kansas City game.  Schaub is now healthy and will back up Keenum in the game against the division leading Colts.
