The Houston Texans are coming off their bye week and the franchise is preparing to go through the home stretch of the NFL regular season in order to reach the playoffs for the first time in club history. The path towards the playoffs for the Texans is going to be more difficult than first thought with the loss of QB Matt Schaub for the remainder of the season with a serious foot injury suffered in the Texans game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.
Matt Leinart will assume control of the Houston Texans under center, but it appears that the Texans will now entertain workouts of veteran quarterbacks this week, including 41-year old quarterback Jeff Garcia. The Texans website has announced that the Texans will work out journeymen quarterbacks such as Brodie Croyle, Trent Edwards, Kellen Clemens, Chase Clement as well as Jeff Garcia.
Garcia’s last job in the NFL was as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles but his last starting job was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. Last season, Garcia played for the Omaha Nighthawks in the UFL.
Jeff Garcia and no one on the list of those working out for the Texans are the answer for the Texans team if Matt Leinart fails under center. Could the first ever playoff appearance for the Texans be slipping away if Matt Leinart doesn’t deliver?
