Report: Matt Schaub Out for Season With Foot Injury, Matt Leinart to Take Over as Texans Quarterback


The Houston Texans are the best team in the AFC. That's at least what their record says, as Houston and Pittsburgh have the conference's best record at 7-3. However, they're about to be tested by injury.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak informed reporters on Monday that quarterback Matt Schaub has suffered a "significant" foot injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported late Monday afternoon that Schaub will miss the rest of the season with a lis franc injury. Schaub apparently suffered the injury on a quarterback sneak during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

This means that Matt Leinart will be called upon to take the starting reigns.
