"Before I talk about those types of things, I have to evaluate it myself," O'Brien said. "I've got to talk to our coaching staff, get their input, personnel people, get their input. So I wouldn't be a good head coach if I stood up here and said, this is what I'm planning to do. The game is less than 48 hours ago. We're going to evaluate everything."
Osweiler, who signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans in March, struggled in his first season in Houston. His inconsistent play eventually got him benched during a Week 15 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, and if it weren't for an injury to Savage, he might not have regained his starting spot for the playoffs.
In Saturday's 34-16 loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional round, Osweiler was 23-of-40 for 198 yards, with a touchdown and three interceptions.
