The Houston Texans host the Minnesota Vikings in Reliant Stadium on Thursday night. This will be the final preseason tune-up for both teams.

The third-string quarterback spot will be on the line as rookie Case Keenum and veteran John Beck will be the only two taking snaps for the Texans. Starter Matt Schaub and backup T.J. Yates are not expected to see the field against the Vikings.

Minnesota is going through position battles of its own, most notably at running back. Matt Asiata, Lex Hilliard, and Jordan Todman will vie for the final tailback roster spot on Thursday.

The Reliant Stadium roof is expected to be closed, as severe weather related to Hurricane Isaac is on the forecast in Houston.

Game Date/Time: 6 p.m. CT Thursday

Location: Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas

TV: ABC 13/KTRK

Radio: 610 AM/100.3 FM/1010 AM
