Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback even though he has struggled at times this season, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: It's hard to blame Fitzpatrick. He is what he is. Fitzpatrick is a great backup that can come in for 6-8 games and help a team save its season. He's not a guy, however, who can lead an offense for 16 games. Fitzpatrick is no more than a QB2 and there's a good chance Ryan Mallet sees time under center before the season is over.

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is locked in as the team's starting quarterback. QB Ryan Mallett isn't expected to challenge for the starting spot any time soon, in the opinion of the Houston Chronicle's Brian T. Smith.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick had an up-and-down preseason, but a slow start against the likes of the Redskins' and Raiders' defenses out of the regular-season gate could change the Texans' plans quickly.

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is still the team's starting quarterback even though he threw two interceptions in the first preseason game, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Huddle Up: It's not exactly good news for a veteran QB when your head coach has to make a statement like this after 14 pass attempts in the first preseason game, but then again, it's not like Case Keenum or 4th-round rookie Tom Savage are shining alternatives right now, either.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien named QB Ryan Fitzpatrick as the team's starting quarterback Tuesday, June 17.
Huddle Up: No surprise here that the nine-year NFL vet got the nod with the only other QBs on the roster being third-year college free agent Case Keenum and rookie fourth-round pick Tom Savage. Meanwhile, the next-most experienced QB on the roster, T.J. Yates, was waived Tuesday.

The Houston Texans signed free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Titans) to an undisclosed 2-year deal Thursday, March 20, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick's signing gives the Texans 4 QBs on the roster, but the team is looking to deal Matt Schaub and Case Keenum and/or T.J. Yates might not be long for the 2014 roster. Instead, it appears Fitz will be the veteran mentor for the QB the Texans are expected to draft, perhaps with the No. 1 overall pick.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Monday, Nov. 11, he is hopeful the players will rally around QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will take over as the starting quarterback again with QB Jake Locker (foot) done for the season. QB Rusty Smith will serve as the backup, although Munchak did not rule out signing another quarterback.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick is 0-2 as the Titans' starter and has thrown for 3 TDs and 4 interceptions this season, but he has faced some tough defenses in the Chiefs, Seahawks and Jets. Don't overlook his mobility though as he has rushed for 94 yards and 2 TDs.
