that dude palmer who does texans reporting for csn said that schaub personally told him that he has torn ankle ligaments.
"torn ankle ligaments"- otherwise known as a sprained ankle. Sprains are "tearing" of ligaments. Unlike knees, however, surgery is generally not done... The ankle "heals" over time. Though, anyone who has had severe sprains know that, though the injury is relatively quick to recover from (two to four weeks, generally), your ankle is never the same and the ligaments are loose and suseptible to further sprains and somewhat chronic. If his ankle is the primary physical issue, I'm sure Schaub would be able to play in a week or two. That being said, he can't exactly afford to lose any mobility.
Regarding your quesion: "why is Kubiak being so dishonest about Schaub's physical condition"
_ I just want to say welcome to Texans fandom. I am glad that you very recently
decided to follow the Houston Texans.
