Matt SchaubHOU -QBSchaub's ankle may not be "right" rest of season
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans QB Matt Schaub will attempt to play through torn ligaments in his ankle. "He may not be 'right' all season," Rapoport adds. This sounds like an excuse for Houston to stick with QB Case Keenum at least in Week 9. The former undrafted free agent held up well in his 1st career start, completing 15 of 25 passes for 271 yards. Most importantly, he didn't turn the ball over against a tough Chiefs defense. Houston should announce its Week 9 starter by Wednesday.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBSchaub an "end-of-the-week decision"
Texans HC Gary Kubiak called QB Matt Schaub (ankle) an "end-of-the-week decision" for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. It sounds like Schaub avoided a significant injury, but it might be still enough for the Texans to roll with either T.J. Yates or Case Keenum. Kubiak said he'll prepare both guys to start this week. It's obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBSchaub's injury doesn't sound serious
Texans QB Matt Schaub didn't return after injuring his ankle in the 2nd half of Sunday's game. But he said afterward that he wanted to re-enter. Insider John McClain spotted him walking in the locker room “without a problem.” Schaub will undergo additional testing, and we should learn more tomorrow. He was INT-free against the Rams but threw for just 186 yards without a TD. QB T.J. Yates tossed a pick-6 on his 5th pass of the afternoon and finished with 2 INTs. There are calls for QB Case Keenum in Houston.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBSchaub leaves with ankle injury
Texans QB Matt Schaub left in the 2nd half of Sunday's game with an ankle injury. QB T.J. Yates entered and tossed a pick-6 on his 5th throw. We'll update Schaub's status when we learn more.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBSchaub named Week 6 starter
Texans HC Gary Kubiak announced QB Matt Schaub as his Week 6 starter. "Was a tough decision," Kubiak added. It sounds like Schaub might be playing for the starting job this Sunday. And he won't be on a long leash. The good news is that he has a matchup against a Rams defense that has given up 11 passing TDs with just 3 INTs so far this year. Still, Schaub is too risky to use in fantasy.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBTexans evaluating QB situation
Texans HC Gary Kubiak refused to fully endorse Matt Schaub as his starting QB on Monday. “He is,” Kubiak said when asked if Schaub was still the starter. “But I’m in the evaluation process. It’s been a rough three weeks, and we’ve got to get the corner turned.” The coaching staff figures to pore through tape over the next couple days. We're guessing they'll conclude that Schaub still gives them a better chance to win than T.J. Yates. Obviously, Schaub shouldn't be in your Week 6 fantasy lineup, despite a plus matchup against the Rams.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBSchaub benched after 3rd INT
Texans QB Matt Schaub was benched after a late 3rd-quarter INT on Sunday night. It was his 3rd pick of the game, giving him 9 through 5 games. That's almost two-thirds of the way to his career high (15 back in 2009). Schaub looks completely shell-shocked, airmailing balls over open receivers and not seeing defenders in throwing lanes. QB T.J. Yates will finish out the game for Houston. We'll see who HC Gary Kubiak goes with for next Sunday's game against the Rams.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBSchaub's starting job is safe
There are calls for QB T.J. Yates in Houston after QB Matt Schaub threw a game-turning pick-6 in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. HC Gary Kubiak shot down any ideas of a QB controversy on Monday. "How short of a leash is he on? He's our quarterback," Kubiak said. Despite tossing pick-6s in 3 straight games, Schaub shouldn't be close to losing the starting job at this point. But the fact that it's even a topic of debate tells you all you need to know about his fantasy outlook. Despite some big numbers to open the season, Schaub is only a QB2.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBmedically cleared for camp
Texans QB Matt Schaub (Lisfranc) has been medically-cleared for the start of training camp. Although he was held out of all OTAs and minicamp practices, Schaub's rehab has been ahead of schedule all offseason. He declared himself 100% back in early-June, and now the doctors concur. The injury shouldn't be an issue in 2012, but Schaub should still only be considered a fantasy backup with a thin group of pass-catchers on a run-first offense.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBwill be a full-go for training camp
Texans trainer Geoff Kaplan confirmed that QB Matt Schaub (Lisfranc) will be a full-go when training camp opens next month. Schaub is paying one more visit to Dr. Robert Anderson in 2 weeks and expects to get full medical clearance. He sat out OTAs and minicamps as a precaution but led workouts with a handful of teammates this past week. "I think we all expect Matt to be out there the 1st day of training camp without any issues," Kaplan said. We'll still be keeping a close eye on Schaub because that was a serious injury he suffered last year, but it doesn't sound like it'll be a factor in 2012.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBback to 100%
Texans QB Matt Schaub declared himself back to 100% after late-November Lisfranc surgery. “I’m ready to go,” Schaub said. He missed OTAs and will also sit out next week's minicamp, but HC Gary Kubiak confirmed that the team is simply playing it safe with their field general. Schaub will be a full-go for training camp. Sitting 9th among QBs before going down last season, he can still get the job done. But piloting a run-first offense with a mediocre group of pass-catchers, we view Schaub as more of a fantasy backup in 2012.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBbeing handled cautiously
Texans HC Gary Kubiak confirmed that QB Matt Schaub (Lisfranc) is being held out of OTAs as a precautionary measure. “Matt is fine," Kubiak said. "Matt, to be honest with you, could probably do individuals, could do 7-on-7, but we’re just being smart with him. When you haven’t passed a physical, you’re not going to step on the field." Schaub is still expected to be ready for training camp in a couple months.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBheld out of OTAs
As expected, Texans QB Matt Schaub (Lisfranc) is being held out of OTAs. He underwent surgery last November and another follow-up procedure in mid-April. The team is playing it safe here, and Schaub is still expected to be ready for training camp in a couple months. We'll see how that foot holds up in preseason action.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBhas "hardware" removed from foot
Texans QB Matt Schaub underwent a procedure last week to have "hardware" removed from his surgically-repaired foot. It was a planned surgery, so his recovery timeline is unaffected. “I’m right on schedule because where the hardware removal takes place in this procedure is right where we are and so from here, we just move forward and just keep going," Schaub said. "But we have a lot of time left to get ready and there’s no doubt I will be ready.” Although he probably won't do much in OTAs, Schaub confirmed that he expects to be good to go for training camp.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBwon't participate in OTAs
Texans HC Gary Kubiak confirmed that QB Matt Schaub (Lisfranc) won't participate in OTAs this spring. It's an injury that usually takes 6+ months to recover from. Schaub went down in November, so OTAs never seemed like a realistic possibility. If he can avoid a setback, though, he should be ready for training camp.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBexpected to be full-go by May
Texans HC Gary Kubiak expects QB Matt Schaub (Lisfranc fracture) to be back to 100% by May. That'd make him a full-go for training camp. It's a serious injury that Schaub is attempting to return from, but we've heard nothing but positive reports on his recovery. We'll continue to update his status this offseason, but expect Schaub to be under center for Houston come Week 1.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBwill be a "full-go" for training camp
Texans QBs Matt Schaub expects to be ready for training camp after suffering a Lisfranc fracture this past November. "I’ll most likely be ready to participate in OTAs, definitely training camp be full-go," Schaub said recently. He just started putting weight on the foot again. Even if his rehab remains on track, Schaub will be a red-flag injury risk in 2012 fantasy drafts.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBwill undergo surgery next week
Texans QB Matt Schaub will undergo surgery on the Lisfranc ligament in his right foot next Wednesday. It'll be a difficult rehab process, but Schaub expects to be ready for training camp next summer. “The offseason will be spent getting ready for training camp,” Schaub said. His recovery will be worth tracking over the next several months.
Matt SchaubHOU -QBplaced on IR
The Texans have placed QB Matt Schaub (foot) on IR, officially ending his 2011 season. He recently visited a foot specialist, who likely confirmed a lisfranc injury. It's a serious injury, and Schaub isn't a lock to be ready for the start of the 2012 season. QB Matt Leinart will finish out the season for Houston. They've signed QB Kellen Clemens to back Schaub up. That takes the Texans out of the mix for free-agent QB Kyle Orton.
