Case Keenum (thumb) is inactive for the Texans' final game of the 2013 season.

Matt Schaub will start.

Schaub started last week against the Broncos and will start against the Titans in Week 17. There's a very good chance this will be Schaub's last start as a Texan. He has struggled this season and lost his job to Keenum earlier in the year.

T.J. Yates is active and will back up Schaub.  

Dennis Johnson is also inactive, which means Jonathan Grimes will start at running back. Grimes was signed just a couple of weeks ago.

Starting inside linebacker Joe Mays is out and Jeff Tarpinian will start next to Darryl Sharpton.

Here are the Texans' other inactives: DeVier Posey, Toben Opurum, Alex Kupper, Cody White.
