Houston (CBS Houston) – The Texans released veteran quarterback T.J. Yates on Tuesday, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport. The move leaves the Texans with three quarterbacks Case Keenum, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and rookie Tom Savage.

Earlier Tuesday, Bill O’Brien named Ryan Fitzpatrick the starting quarterback. O’Brien also made no indication that Yates was on his way out the door.

“(Yates and Case) are both battling it out for number two with Savage.” O’Brien said. “With all three of those guys we need a little bit more consistency. It has nothing to do with effort or work ethic. Those guys have all worked extremely hard.”

Yates was drafted in the fifth round by the Texans in 2011. He went on to start five games his rookie year, including two playoff games, after Matt Schaub went down with an injury.

Yates entered the 2013 off-season as the team’s backup quarterback, but relinquished the position to Case Keenum in training camp.

Baltimore could be a potential landing spot for Yates. Former Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, who drafted Yates, is now the Ravens offensive quarterback.
