"Tom is the starter," the Texans coach said after practice on Tuesday. "Tom is playing well this camp. Tom has really had a good camp. He's only thrown three incompletions in two games. He's really got good command of our offense."

In two preseason games (and five series of work), Savage is 17 of 20 for 167 yards and a touchdown. He got off to a slow start in the preseason opener with two three-and-outs, but the Texans scored touchdowns on two of the last three series. O'Brien named Savage the starting quarterback early in the offseason and reiterated it after the Texans traded two first-round picks to draft Deshaun Watson with the No. 12 pick.
