Houston, TX, United States (4E Sports) – Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was disappointed when he found out that several fans at Reliant Stadium cheered his injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s 38-13 loss to the St. Louis Rams.
“I’d hate to think anyone out there, regardless of who was injured — on our team, on the visiting team, whatever the situation is — that people would be like that and act that way,” Schaub said. “There’s no place for that in this game and there just really isn’t.”
During that game, Schaub explained that he did not notice the reaction of fans, saying he was focused on getting taped up and potentially return to the field. The quarterback said he felt lucky because the injury was not worse like initially expected.
“Just watching it on film, it could have been a lot worse,” Schaub said. “I thought it was a lot worse based on how that happened and the popping that I heard. It must have come out and come back into place. I’m thankful it was not worse.”
The Texans were losing by 25 points when Schaub left the game, having completed 15 of 21 passes for 186 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Backup T.J. Yates finished the 38-13 loss for the Texans (2-4).
Kubiak said Schaub’s game status would be an end-of-the-week decision. Asked plainly if Schaub would start against the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs if healthy, Kubiak replied: “We’ll have to see where we’re at.”
