Ryan Fitzpatrick entered the Texans’ first preseason game as the team’s starting quarterback and continues to hold the title after the a blowout loss.
Asked Monday if Fitzpatrick is locked in as the Texans’ starter, coach Bill O’Brien issued a one-word response.
“Yes,” O’Brien said Monday at NRG Stadium.
As for the training-camp battle between Case Keenum and Tom Savage for the Texans’ backup QB spot, O’Brien confirmed the competition is ongoing.
Fitz threw two interceptions and clearly struggle last Saturday during a 32-0 defeat to the Arizona Cardinals. He was also without Andre Johnson at WR and Arian Foster at RB. Both could play in preseason Week 2.
