Houston Chronicle: Coach Gary Kubiak admitted for the first time
Monday the Texans were worried that QB Matt Schaub had suffered a
season-ending knee injury at Minnesota. In the 28-21 loss to the
Vikings on Nov. 2, Schaub was hit low two times by defensive end
Jared Allen, who was fined $50,000 by the NFL. Schaub left the
game with a torn MCL in his left knee. Kubiak said a day later
that Schaub would be out for two to four weeks. While giving an
update on Schaub at his weekly news conference Monday, Kubiak
disclosed the team's concerns that the QB might not return this
season. "I've been told today that they expect him to throw this
week, so that's very positive," Kubiak said. "(That) doesn't mean
he's going to be moving around. "I think they'll bring him out
there at some point this week and let him throw the ball around
(and) set his feet. I guess I'm beginning to feel more confident
that he'll play this year, but we'll see." That's the first time
anyone with the Texans expressed concern that Schaub might be lost
for the season.
