Putting in a limited practice for a second straight day are tight end Anthony Fasano (ankle, knee) and cornerback Brandon Flowers (knee).

Fasano, who hasn’t played since Week Two, said Wednesday he was “pretty confident” he would return to action this week barring setback.

The Houston Texans continue to list 17 players and on Thursday named Case Keenum the starting quarterback in place of Matt Schaub (ankle, foot).
