Matt Schaub: No place for Texans fans to cheer pain


There has been a lot of displeasure in Houston with Texans quarterback Matt Schaub as the team slid. When Schaub went down in Sunday’s game with an ankle injury, Texans fans cheered. When back up T.J. Yates came in fans even gave him an ovation.

Some of his teammates spoke out against the fans cheering his injury. Schaub couldn’t disagree with them and voiced his displeasure with the actions of the fans.

“It popped and must’ve come out and come back in place. … It could have been drastically worse,” said Schaub Monday on KILT-AM, via the Houston Chronicle.

“I hate to think that anyone out there … whatever the situation is, that people would be that way and act that way,” Schaub said. “There’s no place for that in this game. There just really isn’t.”

Schaub is still fighting to try to play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Witnessing their defense chase Terrelle Pryor down and sack him 10 times hasn’t deterred him, but it might not be best for him to play if he is less than 100 percent.

“I’m going to do everything I can to be ready to go,” said Schaub.

Schaub is a brave man.  Aside from those 10 sacks they registered 10 quarterback hits as well. Pryor is considerably more mobile than Schaub too, the Chiefs defense could feast on Schaub.
