Kubiak: Schaub will play majority of game vs Saints next week.

Kubiak: we expect Posey & Williams on practice field tomorrow.
Kubiak: Hopkins is better today, will start the concussion protocol tomorrow.
Mark Berman @MarkBermanFox26
Gary Kubiak didn't rule out keeping 3 quarterbacks. Both T.J. Yates & Case Keenum played well last night as they compete for back-up QB job.
Gary Kubiak says they've received good news on progress of safety Ed Reed, who remains on PUP. Kubiak said Reed was w/ the team last night.
Gary Kubiak says decision on back-up QB could be made week of opener.
They both r making it real hard on me. Both r playing very well.
Gary Kubiak says Arian Foster has had some injections to help with his sore back and they are working through that process.
Gary Kubaik says WR DeVier Posey, who has been on PUP, is expected back on the field tomorrow.
Gary Kubiak says RB Arian Foster (sore back) will not be on the field tomorrow. Doctors determined yesterday Foster needs a few more days.
Marc Vandermeer @TexansVoice
Kubiak: QBs have all played well. Schaub will play most of game vs Saints. Decision later in the week on who is first off bench
Kubiak: no Whitney tomorrow. Still out with hamstring.
Kubiak: Arian's back needs a few more days. Has had injections to alleviate soreness.

'The running back picture is concerning to me' - #Texans' Arian Foster won't return to practice; receiving injections
#Texans' Arian Foster had injections before first preseason game. Has had MRIs. "Everything looks fine," Kubiak said. #NFL
#Texans' Kubiak "not there yet" regarding being concerned about Arian Foster being ready for season opener. Is concerned about reps, though.
#Texans received "good news" about Ed Reed and he is "ahead." Trying to "push toward" beginning of season. "Lot of good progress." #NFL
#Texans' Kubiak said Yates, Keenum decision not imminent. Could share time for final game vs. #Cowboys. #NFL
No change between Yates, Keenum. #Texans' Matt Schaub will play majority of game vs. #Saints.
#Texans' Kubiak said Swearinger made a football play on #Dolphins' Keller. Said all tackling targets are now "shoulders down" in #NFL.
#Texans' Arian Foster is going through an "injection process" for back that is causing some soreness.
#Texans plan to continue to rest Arian Foster (back) because of soreness. Will likely rest a few more days.
#Texans' Posey, Williams will return Monday. Arian Foster not expected to return.
#Texans' DeAndre Hopkins is "better" and will start concussion protocol. #NFL
John McClain @McClain_on_NFL
Kubiak said he's concerned about his return game. "We've got to do it better," he said. Karim will return kicks against Saints.
Kubiak said he hasn't decided if he'll keep 3 QBs, but it's hard to imagine him keeping 2 based on how well Yates and Keenum have played.
Kubiak said Foster got injections before Minnesota game and he said "They tell me these injections take time. We're taking our time."
Kubiak said none of backs competing for 3rd spot has separated himself although Deji Karim has a slight advantage.
WR DeVier Posey will come off PUP and join his teammates at practice Monday. Has recovered from Achilles surgery in February.
Kubiak said WR DeAndre Hopkins is better but will undergo concussion protocol.
S Shiloh Keo (quad contusion) has a better chance of playing against Saints than Eddie Pleasant (knee sprain). CB Brandon Harris may move.
Kubiak said Foster has back pain that's gone into his legs. I don't think he'll play in preseason.
Arian Foster will not return to practice Monday. Doctors told Gary Kubiak he needs more days off. Got injections in back to alleviate pain
NT Terrell McClain, who didn't start impressing anyone until preseason games, is a solid No. 2 behind Earl Mitchell. McClain's been superb.
With Ed Reed on PUP, Shiloh Keo (quad contusion) and Eddie Pleasant (knee) out, CB Brandon Harris might have to move to safety.
Adam Wexler @awexler
Kubiak said Keo (quad) is day-to-day, should be ok for Sun. Eddie (Pleasant) also day-to-day, but not quite as close as Keo #Texans
Kubiak: Arian Foster will not be back tomorrow. Doctors say he needs a few more days (at least) before he gets out there #Texans
