HOUSTON -

Case Keenum will get his second career start as quarterback Sunday as the Houston Texans host the Indianapolis Colts.

Head coach Gary Kubiak announced the decision Monday during his press conference.

Keenum’s first career start was against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs back on Oct. 13.

Keenum, who replaced an injured Matt Schaub, threw for 271 yards and scored a touchdown for the Texans in their 17-16 loss.

Schaub was back in practice Monday and will prepare this week, but he will back up Keenum after struggling much of the season.

According to a tweet from the Texans, Kubiak said, “Matt's health is fine. It's a decision based on what I saw take place last week with Case."

Running back Arian Foster (hamstring) only worked with team trainers Monday and backup Ben Tate (ribs) missed practice.  Kubiak says he is "very concerned" and will work to get running backs Deji Karim, Dennis Johnson and Ray Graham prepared to play.

The Texans host the Colts at Reliant Stadium at 7:30 p.m.  Sunday. You can watch the game live on KPRC.
