Texans Doubtful About Matt Schaub’s Return

HOUSTON (AP) — Matt Leinart had a quick chat with Andre Johnson before leaving the Texans’ locker room on Tuesday to catch a flight home to Southern California.

When he returns to Houston next week, Leinart will have a first-place team to lead. And maybe Johnson will be back from the injured list.

Leinart is the Texans’ starting quarterback for the immediate future, with Matt Schaub out with what coach Gary Kubiak calls a “significant” foot injury.

Kubiak says Schaub will undergo testing and his status for the rest of the season will be determined next week. Schaub’s agent, Joby Branion, did not return a phone message.

The Texans (7-3) have a bye week. Leinart will make his first start since 2009 in Houston’s next game, at Jacksonville on November 27.
