UPDATE: The NFL vice president of Security Jeff Miller confirmed Wednesday to Ian Rapoport that league is aware of an incident at Schaub’s house involving a fan.
“This is a little unusual in that we don’t normally have fans acting in this way, going to a players residence that sort of thing,” Miller said. “In this case, Monday afternoon, a vehicle pulled into his driveway, an unidentified individual yelled obscenities. The police department is involved. We’ve been in contact with them as we normally would for anything like this. And because it is a team issue, they have a security director, we work with them.
“In this case, they’ll be working closely with the police department. But it’s going to be investigated and handled seriously by Houston Police Department.”

Sports Radio 610′s Fred & Ted show broke the news about a fan yelling at Schaub at his house Monday while another fan took pictures of the incident and reportedly posted the photos on Facebook. Sports Radio 610 did tweet out that “Angry Fans” accosted Schaub at his house but never mentioned the size of the group in the tweet.
The source Sports Radio 610 talked to only said that one fan was yelling at Schaub and pictures were taken by another person. When Sports Radio 610 talked to a member of the Houston PD information department we were told that the Tweets were all the information that would be released about the incident.
ESPN’s Ed Werder is citing a source within the NFL that says the Houston Police and the Houston Texans were contacted about the incident.
No official word from the Houston Texans organization has been released as of Wednesday morning.
