Thanks to an injury to starting quarterback Matt Schaub, the Houston Texans were forced to march Case Keenum out against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7 for his first NFL start, which didn’t go very now.
Now, the team had reportedly been preparing to place Schaub back in the line up, but it doesn’t look like he will be 100 percent healthy at any time this season.
From Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network:
Sources: #Texans QB Matt Schaub has torn ankle ligaments that he’ll be attempting to play through. He may not be “right” all season.

Schaub struggled mightily to start the regular season, with his NFL record for consecutive games throwing a pick-six, but the team is realizing he is still their best option.
It may not be pretty, but Schaub has the experience to turn things around. The only question will be whether or not he can remain healthy enough to stay on the field and avoid making any more horrifying mistakes.
