He's back from the hospital
HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub is back
with his team after he was hospitalized with an injury to the bursa
sac in his right knee.
Schaub practiced on Thursday, and coach Gary Kubiak expects his
No. 1 quarterback to start when the Texans (4-5) visit the New York
Jets (7-2) on Sunday.
Schaub went to the hospital on Tuesday and stayed overnight. He
ranks fifth in the AFC in completion percentage (64.2) and yards
passing (2,320). Dan Orlovsky is Schaub's backup, and Matt Leinart
is next on the depth chart.
Kubiak says Schaub took about half the first-team snaps on
Thursday. The only way Schaub will not start is if he has a setback
before the game.
