Off the Turf with Scurf: Matt Schaub and Geoff Kaplan

Posted by Nick Scurfield on June 30, 2012 – 12:55 pm

Episode five of “Off the Turf with Scurf,” my new podcast here on HoustonTexans.com, features Texans quarterback Matt Schaub and Texans head athletic trainer/director of sports medicine Geoff Kaplan.

Schaub, who’s entering his sixth season with the Texans and ninth in the NFL, discusses his rehab from last season’s Lisfranc injury; his health status; the players-only throwing sessions he has been organizing at the University of Houston; his thoughts on wide receivers Lestar Jean, DeVier Posey, Keshawn Martin and Andre Johnson; how he and Johnson only played in three games together last season; his disappointment in having to miss the end of last season as the Texans made their first-ever playoff run; the importance of being around the team last season after he was hurt; his upcoming expiring contract; fatherhood with his three daughters Madison, Makayla and Mackenzie; his GR8 Hope Foundation; a whole lot about golf; his relationship with Texans head coach Gary Kubiak; and his goals for the upcoming season.

Kaplan, who’s entering his fourth season with the Texans and 20th in the NFL, talks about what the offseason has been like inside the training room; the camaraderie among players as they rehab; players embracing what Kaplan calls “prehab” this offseason; Schaub’s health status; the specific challenges of coming back from a Lisfranc injury; Andre Johnson’s health status; some of his core principles in the training room; his memories of working for the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Titans; the importance of developing relationships and trust with players; his protocol on gamedays when players are injured on the field; and more.

Thanks for listening. Link

    Will the Texans be wearing a 10th anniversary patch on their jerseys this year?
