Texans coach Gary Kubiak met with the media Monday for his regularly-scheduled day-after-a-game press conference at 3:30 p.m. CT at Reliant Stadium.
Here are the highlights:
- Kubiak had extensive comments about rookie cornerback Kareem Jackson. Check them out here.
- Kubiak said that quarterback Matt Schaub, who briefly went to the locker room in the fourth quarter with an apparent injury on Sunday, had X-rays but is “fine” aside from being sore. Schaub was in meetings this morning with the team. “He just got hit in the lower gut and he was real sore,” Kubiak said. “They took him inside and gave him a shot so that he could come back and finish the game. But (he’s) just very, very sore. Everything checked out fine.”
- Kubiak said that strong safety Troy Nolan, who had two interceptions in Week 4 at Oakland, is in line for more reps after playing about 15-20 snaps on Sunday. “He did some good things,” Kubiak said. “He will continue to see more time. He’s done some good things with the team, and he’ll continue to see more time.”
- Defensive end Antonio Smith topped a short list of players who Kubiak said have performed consistently well for the Texans’ 32nd-ranked defense this season. “I think 94 (Smith) has played very well throughout the season,” Kubiak said. “Yesterday, he was exceptional. Bernard (Pollard) played his best game yesterday of the year for us. He played very, very good. I think Mario (Williams) has been consistent. I think Brian (Cushing) is getting better in what we’re asking him to do every week, and he was better this week. Shaun Cody has been a very consistent player for us throughout the season. So, that’s a few.”
