Kubiak: “No questions” about Schaub’s availability for training camp

Posted by Nick Scurfield on June 6, 2012 – 5:40 pm

Quarterback Matt Schaub has not participated in organized team activities (OTAs) as he recovers from a 2011 Lisfranc injury, but the Texans fully expect him to be ready for training camp in late July.

Coach Gary Kubiak reaffirmed as much on Wednesday after being asked how able Schaub might be for camp and the beginning of the season.

“There’s nobody here questioning it, I can tell you that,” Kubiak said. “He’s our quarterback. He’s our leader. He’s played extremely well. He had a very unfortunate situation last year, getting caught in a pile. We know what Matt’s capable of and what he’s done when he’s been on the field for us and we’re expecting big things from him, so there’s no questions being asked here.”

Schaub has been rehabbing on a side field during OTA practices, running and doing quarterback drills as he works his right foot back to full strength.

“He looks good to me,” Kubiak said. “He looks like Matt. He’ll work as hard as anybody, and he’s got a lot of ground to make up while some of these other guys take a little break here in a few weeks. He and Andre (Johnson) are going to have to stay at it.”

With Schaub out, second-year quarterback T.J. Yates has been leading the Texans’ first-team offense throughout OTAs. Kubiak called it an “amazing” opportunity for Yates, who started seven games as a rookie last season and led the Texans to their first-ever playoff victory.

Last offseason, Yates didn’t have the benefit of OTAs as a rookie because of the lockout, and he was third in line for reps in training camp behind Schaub and Matt Leinart.

“T.J.’s really still a young player, and all the reps he’s gotten – he’s our starting quarterback right now out here, and the more reps he gets doing that, the more comfortable he becomes that he can lead a team and do those things,” Kubiak said. “He did it last year, so as hard as it is to have Matt out, it’s been very valuable for T.J.”

    Find a way for the 2 QBs to coexist.

    I’d like to get Matt back and take a shot at the title, but I’m VERY glad TJ has been getting all these reps. I am confident he will be taking over the helm next season or there after. Schauby’s accurate and a good leader, but he doesn’t respond well when the pocket collapse and he’s not athletic enough to try and run and take a hit.

    We all see the writing on the wall…this is the last year of Matt’s contract…TJ is taking first team snaps…his leash is very short

    I disagree. Schaub would be taking the first-team snaps if he were 100% healthy, but they’re being cautious with him and letting him wait until training camp to avoid risking a fluke injury. Invaluable experience for Yates, to be sure, but Schaub is the clear-cut starter and will be for years to come if he performs as expected this season.

    Schaub has 3 or 4 good years left in the league, he has shown moments of brilliance but also moments of stupidity. If he does not produce at least an AFC championship appearance this year the talk of a quarterback controversy going into the off season will for sure be there. T.J. won over the fans last season and anyone who knows football could see with more expirience that we could have easily won the Baltimore game last season in the playoffs. Unless Schaub proves he is the missing peice to a super bowl run, he wont be a texan for long.
