Matt Schaub Cleared For Start Of Houston Texans Training Camp


The Houston Texans have had some questions surrounding their starting quarterback Matt Schaub this offseason as he recovers from a Lisfranc injury suffered last season. Schaub visited Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina this past week and was “given the green light” to start training camp.

Schaub suffered the injury last November and underwent surgery that ended his season.

It now appears that Schaub will be 100% heading into the season and the Texans hope to be poised for another run. Unfortunately, Schaub may be a little behind schedule in terms of playing shape after missing the offseason workouts.

Schaub is in a contract year, where he is scheduled to make $7.15 million this season. He will need to perform at a top level to convince the team that he can be the guy to take them to the next level.

After all, the Texans did just fine at the end of last season while Schaub was out with his injury. Rookie signal-caller T.J. Yates led the Texans to a playoff win before losing in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs to the Baltimore Ravens.
