Texans’ Schaub Will Miss Time With Significant Foot Injury

By TERRANCE HARRIS, SportsRadio 610

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.”

    Through out the season, every radio and TV show has said the same thing… everyone can go down except for Matt Schaub… I don’t know if there is anything that can express the disappointment that every Texans fan has at this point.
