Call me crazy, but I haven't given up hope that Schaub returns for the playoffs.
I have also not given up. The Texans' uncanny ability for being medically vague has left me hoping for the best. I might be a glutton for punishment but there are a couple things...
My brother is a local orthopedic surgeon's PPA. I broke my ankle two years ago. He took an x-ray of my foot and discovered that I had previously broken my foot not once but twice. So my going rate is 3 broken feet for me and only one put me down and that was the ankle. I never knew about the other two breaks. I remember being bothered by them when it happened but never took much notice to its severity. So... I am also wondering why they don't just put a boot on him and throw him back out there. Go to a tandem role with Leinart if need be. I'm not saying Schaub needs to nut up or anything. I still don't know the extent of his injury and his pain-level tolerances... I just hope he chooses to play football if the choice was left to him like Roethlisberger did.
As for the lisfranc rumors, I understand that LaCranfora is usually accurate with his reports but I will not hold ESPN as the holy grail. What DOES bother me is... why wait to see the specialists next week? Why not n-o-w? I don't get that one. I also don't think this is the first time the Texans have been slow to medically schedule something for...
