Seven months after a foot injury ended his 2011 season, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub still isn’t a full participant in Organized Team Activities, and he won’t be on the field during next week’s minicamp, either. But he says he’s 100 percent healthy.
“I’m ready to go,” Schaub told John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Schaub, who is recovering from Lisfranc surgery on his right foot, has been working on agility drills on a side field with other players who aren’t fully participating in practice, and he appears to be in good shape.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak said he’s holding Schaub and receiver Andre Johnson (who had arthroscopic knee surgery a month ago) back as a precaution, but he has no concerns about their health.
“We know what Matt’s capable of, and we’re expecting big things from him,” Kubiak said. “He’ll work as hard as anybody. He and Andre are going to have to stay at it.”
