Case Keenum will miss the Houston Texans finale allowing Matt Schaub one more chance to start for the team.

Schaub will be cut at the end of the season saving the team over $11 million in salary while Keenum could return as a back-up. The Texans can claim the first overall pick in the 2014 Draft with a loss on Sunday.

The Texans struggled to close out the 2012 season and were clobbered in the playoffs by New England. This season they started 2-0 before losing their next 13.

Also inactive for the Texans are RB Dennis Johnson (hip), WR DeVier Posey, FB Toben Opurum, OL Alex Kupper, OL Cody White, and LB Joe Mays.
