Maybe some fans of the Houston Texans will get their wish this Sunday with a new starting quarterback under center against the Kansas City Chiefs, as the status is uncertain for the current starter.

Deepi Sidhu of the Official Houston Texans website wrote in an article with the headline, “Starting QB undetermined for Week 7 at KC,”  that the starter could be any of the three QBs on the roster this week,

Basically is Schaub is healthy he’s going to play, if not we’ll either see T.J. Yates of Case Keenum.

Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle in an article on Schaub talking about his injury and the fans booing wrote:

"“As for the fans who joyously approved of his fall, Schaub said he initially was too caught up in the game to notice. Informed after the contest about the cheering, the 10-year veteran sounded like many of his teammates who disapproved of the applause.”"

Also from the Houston Chronicle, the report was safety Danieal Manning will miss 6-10 weeks, which really hurts the Texans’ defense.

Smith and Jerome Soloman wrote in the article:

"Kubiak was unsure about how much time Manning would miss. During a radio appearance on 97.5 FM, the eight-year veteran said he could be out six to 10 weeks and has a major hyperextension of his right knee.”"

At House of Houston, a Fansided site, Yoni Pollak also wrote about the Texans’ QB situation, saying:

"With one more opponent until the bye, the Texans will have to decide which quarterback to start against an undefeated Chiefs team.”"
