Texans number one signal-caller in doubt to play in week seven.
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub missed his team’s mid-week practice putting his chances of playing this weekend in severe doubt.
Schaub was at practice, head coach Gary Kubiak said, but he did not participate as he heals from an injury he sustained Sunday in the Texans’ 38-13 loss to the St. Louis Rams.
Schaub has not spoken to reporters since suffering the injury, but he said on a team-run radio show that his foot and ankle were rolled up on when Rams defensive end Chris Long sacked him.
Instead of attend meetings today, Schaub went through rehab, which isn’t a great sign for his availability later in the week. Still Kubiak insisted that Schaub could play Sunday without practicing.
T.J. Yates and Case Keenum split reps during practice, Kubiak said. Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said the quarterbacks always split reps during practice early in the week, paring down to the starter getting the most on Friday.
The Texans will need all of the help they can get ahead of their week seven clash with the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.
Houston sit 2-4 entering this weekend and risk losing touch with the main playoff chances in the AFC south, especially after being thumped 38-13 by the St Louis Rams last weekend.
