Schaub finally gets “green light”


After missing six weeks of the 2011 regular season, the postseason, and all of the offseason training program with a foot injury, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub is back, baby.

According to Paul Kuharsky of, Schaub has gotten the “green light” to practice when training camp begins.

The go-ahead came from Dr. Robert Anderson, who repaired the Lisfranc injury suffered when former Buccaneers defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth brought Schaub down during a game  last November.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle said during an appearance last week on PFT Live that the team won’t be giving Schaub a new contract until he proves that he’s healthy.¬† A league source has since told PFT that there have been “early discussion” on a new deal, but that it likely won’t be finalized until after the season, at the earliest.

    I sure hope the front office is correct putting all our eggs in this basket. We have no backup (Yates sucks).

    Lisfranc injuries are no fun. I remember when I had surgery for my lisfranc fracture. You’re on crutches for months before you can start walking in a boot. Then once you start enjoying the freedom of walking without crutches you have to go back under the knife to get the screws taken out so it’s back on crutches again. No fun at all. Not a texans fan but I wish Schaub a speedy return to form.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. Mikey! WHOA!

    Haynesworth did not bring Schaub down. It was a QB sneak, and Haynesworth took a shot in the pile.

    Haynesworth is a piece of crap who’s only good for cheap shots and failed physicals. And grabbing breasts without permission.
