Breaking News: Houston Texans Announce Matt Schaub Will Not Play Against Chiefs


Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has confirmed that much maligned quarterback, Matt Schaub will not start this Sunday when the team faces the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Schaub injured his lower leg and ankle last Sunday during the Texan’s loss to the St. Louis Rams.

The Texans began the season as a front running favorite to go deep into the post season in 2013. After winning their first two games, the Texans have dropped their last four, giving them a 2-4 record. Along the way, they’ve managed to break an NFL record, five straight games with a “pick six” where an interception was returned for a touchdown.

The surprise here is that Kubiak has decided to go with quarterback Case Keenum against the Chiefs instead of T.J. Yates. Keenum began the year as the Texan’s third quarterback behind Schaub and Yates, but obviously has Kubiak’s confidence. This could stand to anger some Texan fans, as Yates was the rookie quarterback who led the team to a playoff victory in the 2011 season after Schaub was placed on injured reserve.

Regardless of which quarterback gets the start on Sunday, the Chiefs would be wise to not look past this Texans team. They are hungry for a win, have a stout defense and a viable running game. They’ll need to be on their toes without a doubt.

What do you think, Addicts? Do you think the Chiefs have a better shot at winning with Case Keenum under center? Sound off below.

    As long as they bring their A game it should be an ass whooping, I would love for the offense to start clicking on all cylinders

  • Mark Bustamante

    Like the Raidrrs game last week the Texans scare me too. They are not as bad as the have played as of late. Arian Foster is still a force to be reckoned with. The Texans defense is nothing to sneeze at either. If the Chiefs look past this Sunday they could be in for a good old fashioned ass kicking

  • ArrowFan

    If our D stops the run and forces 2nd and 3nd and long then they will not score many points. If they are able to produce decent first down yards on the ground it will be like playing ourselves.

  • ……ChiefsFan……

    I guess Case drew the short straw.

  • Chris Tarrants

    The young gun getting his first start against our defense in arrowhead with all that noise, this kid is going to be in for a very long afternoon. Our offense needs to find away to get this monkey off their backs and put some points on the board

    …and the cupcake teams just keep getting softer, while the Chief’s bravado keeps getting louder.

      Nobody cares to hear the dumbass opinion of a bandwagon donkeys fan.
