Fitzpatrick named Texans starting QB

HOUSTON -- The competition is over. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the Texans' starting quarterback.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien announced his decision to the team Tuesday morning and then at his news conference following Houston's first day of mandatory minicamp.

As expected, wide receiver Andre Johnson did not attend Tuesday's practice. Outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney returned to Houston for his rehabilitation after having sports hernia surgery Thursday. And with the starting competition finished, the Texans narrowed their field for their backup quarterback, too. Houston released quarterback T.J. Yates sources said. Yates will have to go through the waiver system before becoming a free agent.
