    The status of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub is uncertain for the rest of the season. (AP Photo/Brian Blanco)All the good news over the Texans’ 7-3 start turned bad today when they found out quarterback Matt Schaub has suffered a “significant foot injury,” according to coach Gary Kubiak.

    Kubiak said Schaub will wear a boot on his ankle and then travel around the country next week seeing specialists in Indianapolis and Charlotte to determine whether he can play again this season.

    Kubiak said Matt Leinart will start at Jacksonville when the Texans return from their open date.

    Schaub was injured on a quarterback sneak in the second quarter during Sunday’s 37-9 victory at Tampa Bay.

    He suffered what was believed to be a sprained ankle and played the rest of the game. He was barely limping in the dressing room after the game.

    Schaub hasn’t missed a start since the 2008 season. He started every game the last two years and through eight games this season

    That's a disappointment for Schaub and the Texans, but I don't see them missing much of a beat.

    Matt Leinart isn't a bad replacement for the rest of the season for a 7-3 team going to the playoffs. It just means a lot more Arian Foster who's been doing a lot of work for the team and doing it well.
    In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!

    Wow. Manning and the Colts are finally out of their way but Schaub, Williams, and Johnson all go down. That is just devastating.

    I may be in the minority, but I think Leinart will do well in Houston. When he played in Arizona, they were a team that had to pass to set up the run and he just isn't that type of QB. Houston has arguably the best ground attack in the NFL and that will give Leinart a lot of man coverage with one of the best WRs in the game and a very good TE as well. Schaub has basically been playing game manager all year with how dominant Foster and Tate have been on the ground.

    Don't forget Johnson is coming back after the bye week. I think they will be o.k., which probalby means Reliant Stadium will come crashing down next!
