Houston Chronicle: The Texans will not know until close to game
time Monday night if quarterback Matt Schaub is healthy enough to
back up Sage Rosenfels against the Jaguars. "Sage will start,"
coach Gary Kubiak said after Saturday's practice. "Matt's made a
lot of progress, and he's gotten better each day. He took all the
reps today with the scout team. "If we feel good about his
practice, then he'll go into the game as the backup. But if we
don't feel good about it, he won't suit up." Schaub has been out
since suffering a torn knee ligament on Nov. 2 at Minnesota.
Rosenfels is 1-2 as a starter during the three games Schaub has
missed. Craig Nall has been the backup to Rosenfels. "He (Schaub)
is not himself, but he's awfully close," Kubiak said. "He's made a
lot more progress than we thought he'd make." Schaub, who didn't
throw until the week before the Cleveland game (Nov. 23), won't
enter the Jaguars game unless he's capable of playing if something
happens to Rosenfels.
