Matt Schaub Did Not Practice
Houston (CBS Houston)- Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub didn’t participate in Wednesday’s practice.
“I’m going to sit down with the doctors today (Wednesday),” Kubiak said. “He’s swollen, very sore and came out to practice. He was not part of the meetings this morning.”
Head coach Gary Kubiak said on Monday that Schaub suffered a leg injury in the 38-13 loss to the St. Louis Rams.
“Matt (Schaub) is getting some injections as we speak,” Kubiak said Monday afternoon. “He’s very sore and beat up on the leg, ankle and everywhere. We’ll have to see where he’s at, but we probably got a little bit lucky there.”
He continued with the same tune saying the Schaub will be “a late week decision” and that naming a starter quickly isn’t a priority of his.
“I could give Matt all the way up to Sunday,” Kubiak said. “You want to give every player an opportunity to get back on the field.”
Backup quarterbacks T.J. Yates and Case Keenum shared the reps 50/50 at Wednesday’s practice. Both getting first-team reps.
“I split them right down the middle,” Kubiak said. “They both practiced pretty good. I thought we had a good start to the week.”
Schaub has thrown nine interceptions and in Week 5 he became the first quarterback to throw pick-sixes in four consecutive games.
