More tests coming for Schaub

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub suffered an injury during Sunday’s blowout loss to the Rams.  Whether Schaub will miss next weekend’s game at Kansas City remains to be seen.

Schaub has a lower leg injury.  The team says more tests are coming, and more will be known on Monday.

At first, it appeared to be an ankle injury — it could be more than that.

“Matt’s got a little bit of everything on that one leg, so we’ll take a look at it,” coach Gary Kubiak said after the game.

The Texans possibly could take a look at giving Case Keenum a shot, given that T.J. Yates authored a Schaub-esque performance in relief of Schaub on Sunday.

  1. It doesn’t matter if its a hangnail. This is an opportunity for Houston to bench a horrible QB and claim he wasn’t benched, but injured. It’s win-win, but not win-win-win.

  2. Our owner is awful. Case should get the call, but won’t. Never thought I would wish for Bud Adams back.

  3. Get well soon Schauby. Those pathetic fans don’t deserve you. The rest of the league’s fanbases know all QBs get in a rut. You never boo a man who almost had his leg torn off, barbarians.

  4. htowntexan,

    Stake your claim now and don’t go back on it. Why should Case get the call? Because he put up ridiculous numbers as a 5th year senior in a weak conference? Whatever Case did this preseason was done against people fighting for the bottom roster spots in the NFL, and should be treated as such. If you guys think Kubiak is conservative now, wait till Case plays. No deep ball. Whatsoever.

  5. He’s not hurt. Out of respect, the coach told him to act hurt instead of benching him. A common practice.

  6. Can we PLEASE stop with the Vince Young obsession???? He’s done. Just accept it and move on. As for the Texans, what was at first a quarterback question has now turned into a coaching question. I’ve been a long time supporter of Kubiak, but I think today was the nail in the coffin. The Texans need a change, even as early as the bye week. Let Wade coach the rest of the season and then do a full search in the offseason. Today was embarrassing and McNair should act accordingly….

  7. Worst fan base in NFL. Anyone who boos their own after an injury is classless. Texan fans are a bunch of back woods, inbred, toothless morons.

    Garbage, gutless turds.

    Don’t embarrass us anymore than our fans already have. You were probably the same guy cheering when Schaub was on the ground holding his ankle in pain.

    Without Bob McNair, there is no football in Houston. I’ll buy your 1 way ticket to tennessee.


  9. Should the this team bring in VINCE YOUNG??? He has matured and he’s ready to go….
    He has shown everyone that he is NOT a cancer in the locker room and that he is a hard worker (e.g. Green Bay Packers)… Vince is a 6′-5″ mobile quarterback with talent and playoff experience…. He is hungry, motivated and determined to continue playing the game that he love so much, NFL FOOTBALL…
    Vince is a LOW risk-HIGH reward type of guy… This would be a wise move for any GM/Head Coach looking to upgrade their qb pool….

  10. I hope they do play Case, so he’ll fail too and everyone will finally stop all the Play Case nonsense.

  11. @thekingdave
    I agree that Kubiack gets even more conservative with QBs that aren’t Schaub. I would just like to point out I don’t even remember the last time the Texans threw a deep ball, and I’m being completely serious, my mind is a blank.

  12. Disgusted with Texan fans applauding the injury. Yet what else would you expect who have Cruz and Perry as their homeboy heroes. Shaub is a great quarterback who’s has do every well for you morons. It’s a fort all game duh!!!

  13. So if Texas seceeds does that mean I don’t have to put up with those back wood morons anymore. Oh yeah wait for the fires Perry begging the govt for scratch. Cheering an injury is the most discussing thing I have ever seen. Surprised they didn’t bring the assault rifles to the game

  14. Schaub just doesn’t want to play against the Chiefense! I wouldn’t either after watching Pryor, who’s a much more mobile quarterback, get sacked 10 times on Sunday! Chop chop!
