The Texans promising season has suffered a serious blow with the announcement quarterback Matt Schaub suffered a “significant foot injury” during Sunday’s win against Tampa Bay.

Schaub will miss some time due to the right foot injury but head coach Gary Kubiak did not specify how much time during Monday’s press conference. Kubiak would not confirm or deny that Schaub will miss the remainder of the season as some media outlets had said. Matt Leinart will start against Jacksonville when the Texans return from this week’s bye week.

But there is no denying that the Texans playoffs hopes took a serious blow with the loss of Schaub. The AFC South-leading Texans (7-3) are riding a four-game winning streak and have their best record after 10 games in franchise history heading into the bye week.

Kubiak said the team is bringing in a specialist this week to evaluate the MRI that was done and that Schaub will then head to Charlotte next week to have his right foot evaluated by another specialist.

“We’re going to do everything we can to get it evaluated quickly and see if we can get him back on the football field,” Kubiak said. “It’s disappointing but we are going to go to work and do what’s right by Matt.”
