The cheering from the home crowd that accompanied Texans quarterback Matt Schaub’s injury on Sunday infuriated many members of the team, but Schaub says he wasn’t aware of anything going on in the stands when he went down.

Schaub explained Monday that he was more concerned with the popping sound he heard when he went down than what the fans were doing. Schaub was vague about just what part of his right leg made the popping sound, but he was relieved that the injury turned out to be less severe than feared at the moment of impact.

“It popped and must’ve come out and come back in place,” Schaub said, via the Houston Chronicle. “It could have been drastically worse.”

Schaub received injections and other treatment on his leg on Monday and said he’ll do everything in his power to return to the lineup this week. Coach Gary Kubiak said that the team would be preparing T.J. Yates and Case Kennum to play while waiting to find out Schaub’s condition.

  1. This guy is a good QB just having a bad patch. He will overcome it through. I will take him any point over 20 QBs today.

    Houston Fans – You seem to forget how your team were before Schaub was your QB, Remember the bad old days with Carr.

    Also Kubiak is very good coach. He knows what is there in offense and Wade Philips is a really good defensive coach. Waht else do you want?

    The problem what I see is the plays were not executed properly by the players and that’s the reason they are having a rough start. I know there were few pick six, they are all bad breaks. The receiver if he had done a good Job it would have remained incomplete on some of the pick 6s.

  2. when me and my drunk buddies have a 75% success rate of calling our plays before the snap, its not hard to imagine that a dc or a mlb are even better at it.
