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.
