Texans QB Matt Schaub out indefinitely
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub will for sure be out the next two weeks with a right foot injury and may possibly even be done for the season.
Coach Gary Kubiak said Schaub sustained the injury on a quarterback sneak late in the second quarter. Schaub finished the game but threw only three more passes in Houston’s 37-9 win over Tampa Bay, according to the New York Times.
Backup Matt Leinart will be under center for the injured Schaub in upcoming games for the Texans.
“Your time’s going to come, and you’ve got to be accountable for when that opportunity comes,” Leinart said Monday. “They know that I work hard and I study hard and I’m prepared very well. We’re going to take this and go game-by-game, and I don’t think much is going to change.”
According to NFL.com, the former USC Trojan was drafted 10th overall by the Arizona Cardinals in 2006. He re-signed with Houston in 2010.
The Texans are in the middle of a four-game win streak and are tied for the best record in the AFC with the Pittsburgh Steelers. They will next play at Jacksonville on Nov. 27.
