The Houston Texans cut their roster down to 53 players on Friday night.

Among the cuts was rookie QB Case Keenum. Keenum was undrafted out of Houston, and Kubiak said he will get “great consideration” for the practice squad.

Houston will keep three quarterbacks, electing to keep veteran John Beck as the No. 3 QB behind Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates.

“After what happened last year, obviously, it’s a concern of mine going with two [quarterbacks],” Kubiak said.

Notable cuts: QB Case Keenum (rookie, undrafted, Houston) -- Coaches had nice things to say about Keenum throughout the preseason but ultimately decided to keep veteran QB John Beck. Keenum will probably end up on the practice squad. FB Moran Norris (12th year, Kansas) -- The veteran fullback was on the fringe. He played a lot in the last preseason game because coaches wanted to see more of him to make a decision on his status. He was waived and the team traded CB Sherrick McManis for FB Tyler Clutts. RB Jonathan Grimes (rookie, undrafted, William & Mary) -- Grimes was one of the last cuts. He ran the ball well and performed on special teams.
