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
