After missing six games in the regular season and two in the playoffs, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub says he is so fired up about training camp that nothing will distract him, including his contract situation.
The quarterback missed his team’s final eight games after suffering a foot injury in November. Schaub underwent surgery and was held out of OTAs and minicamp as a precaution, but he’s been working with Andre Johnson and other Texans receivers at the University of Houston.
Schaub, a West Chester East graduate, and his wife, Laurie, presented a $200,000 check to the Texas Children’s Hospital on Monday, a donation through the couple’s Gr8 Hope Foundation. Schaub wears No. 8. Last year, the couple raised $108,000 for a playroom at the hospital’s campus west of Houston and this year’s donation is earmarked for the hospital’s child life development program.
I think coaches and GMs would like to have a team that can rely on its offense and defense equally. (I know they love to say special teams is a third of things. Count the plays. It’s a much smaller piece.)
While Matt Schaub was recently granted a clean bill of health after his Lisfranc injury, another Houston Texan is still rehabbing from his own season-ending injury.
