It looks as if the Houston Texans will be without starting Quarterback Matt Schaub for at least the next two weeks and maybe even the next month. Getting hurt in Sunday’s 28-21 loss to the Vikings yesterday, today it was stated that Schaub has an injured MCL.
Coach Gary Kubiak said that the team is still trying to determine just how bad the injury is, and Schaub was on crutches today. The injury came when he was hit in the knee by the Vikings Jared Allen during the second quarter of the loss. He did finish the second quarter even after the hit, but then was pulled for Sage Rosenfels at the half.
This season he has 1762 yards with 10 TDs and eight picks in seven games. He did have to spend one game on the sidelines (loss to the Colts) after he spent the night in the hospital with a virus.
