Houston Texans Matt Schaub Put on IR
The Houston Texans have placed quarterback Matt Schaub on injured reserve with a right foot injury, and signed quarterback Kellen Clemens to fill his roster spot.
With Schaub heading to IR it means he’s done for the season after suffering the injury in Houston’s win over Tampa Bay. He met with several doctors, including a specialist in Charlotte, who determined he’ll need season-ending surgery on the Lisfranc injury.
Matt Leinart will start for Houston (7-3) in Jacksonville (3-7) on Sunday. Clemens will serve as the teams 3rd quarterback, behind rookie T.J. Yates.
Clemens tried out for the Texans on Monday, along with Jeff Garcia, Trent Edwards, Brodie Croyle and Chase Clement.
Schaub is the 10th Texans player to go on injured reserve this season, joining a group that includes outside linebacker Mario Williams (torn chest muscle) and linebacker Darryl Sharpton (dislocated shoulder).
