This only shows (to me) that Kubiak wants Keenum to end up being our #2 QB. Yates shouldn't be taking the day off he should be trying to get better. Get in sync with his new WR's and even help the timing with his current WR's.
Yates sitting out of mini-camp means that he really is fine being our #2 and never trying to start or he has some sort of injury that we don't know about.
I don't believe that Keenum is better than Yates but it makes no sense to have him taking time off. He should be trying to push Schaub.
It's interesting to note that McClain yesterday commented that maybe Keenum doesn't make back up QB this year, but he gets the strong feeling from the Texans that they see Keenum, not Yates, as Schaub's eventual successor.
