Texans QB Tom Savage ‘healthy and ready to roll’

Back from missing an entire season due to a shoulder injury, reserve quarterback Tom Savage delivered the football with zip and accuracy this week during the Texans' first organized team activity.

Savage is trying to climb the depth chart after previously being the third-string quarterback. The Texans signed Brock Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million contract to be their new starter and brought back Brandon Weeden on a two-year, $4 million contract to back him up.
"I'm healthy and ready to roll," said Savage, who's entering his third NFL season. "Whatever I can do to help Brock. He's a great guy and we're all just trying to win. I'm going to be out there competing. The day I stop competing is the day I quit this sport. I'm out here to make everyone better."
A strong-armed, 6-4, 228-pound former fourth-round draft pick from Pitt, Savage played in two games as a rookie and completed 10 of 19 passes for 127 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. Savage passed for 5,690 yards, 37 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in college while playing for Rutgers, Arizona and Pitt.

Savage made progress during the preseason last year before spraining his shoulder against the Dallas Cowboys and being shut down for the season.
"Tom always had that chip on his shoulder," Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. "He plays the game with a lot confidence and I mean he’s developing – year three for him now, mastering this offense a little better. It’s in him, it’s been in him, so he’ll be all right.”
