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 ESPN.com, 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.
