The Houston Texans have enjoyed a historic start in the franchise history as they moved out to a 7-3 record with a complete beatdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday. The Texans have been able to overcome the loss of two superstar players on their roster, DE Mario Williams and WR Andre Johnson. Now, it appears that Houston might be without starting QB Matt Schaub.
In the afternoon press conference this afternoon, the Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak announced that the Texans starting quarterback has a “significant” foot injury after their game yesterday but told reporters that the team has not pin-pointed what the injury is, and the franchise has not decided on the treatment for the injury.
The Houston Texans are heading into their bye-week, and were looking forward to the return of WR Andre Johnson who has been missing since week four. The foot injury must be significant, head coach Gary Kubiak has already named Matt Leinart as the starting quarterback in Week 12.
The Texans will square off against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12, but this franchise can’t continue to hold their one game lead over the Tennessee Titans for too long with an extended absence of Matt Schaub under center.
