Kubiak’s answer has been that Schaub remains the starter, but that the final answer to the question remained under evaluation. Kubiak has done enough evaluating and he said Wednesday that Schaub will be in the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Rams.
“It was a tough decision,” Kubiak said, via the team’s website. “Real tough. But I feel like it was the best thing for our football team this weekend.”
What’s left unsaid is that the best thing for the Texans this weekend may not be the best thing for the Texans next weekend. Should Schaub struggle again, whether or not it includes a fifth straight game with an interception returned for a touchdown, Kubiak’s evaluation is likely to find T.J. Yates strolling onto the field with the first team in Week Seven against the Chiefs.
