After getting off to a franchise best 7-3 start, all is not well with the Houston Texans. In the weeks previous to Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the team suffered the loss of both its defensive star Mario Williams (out for the season) and all-pro wide receiver Andre Johnson (reported to be out for at least six weeks).
Now comes word that quarterback Matt Schaub has suffered a “significant foot injury.” This, according to coach Gary Kubiak.
With next week being a bye week for the Texans Schaub will sport a walking boot on his ankle and visit specialists in Indianapolis and Charlotte to determine whether or not he can suit up again this season.
Backup quarterback and Heisman trophy winner Matt Leinart is slated to start against Jacksonville when they meet on November 27th.
It’s been reported that Schaub’s ankle injury was during a quarterback sneak during the second quarter of the team’s 37-9 thrashing of Tampa Bay.
At the time it looked like he suffered a slight sprain, as he continued to play well into the fourth quarter.
Schaub has yet to miss a start sine the 2008 season.
