I've read Cland's posts for nearly ten years now...dude has a ton of credibility so I tend to believe that he's on to something when he is passing on a rumor. Historically he's not the kind of guy to spread wild stuff.

Chase Clement 'Excited' to Work Out For Texans
Updated: Friday, 18 Nov 2011, 8:51 PM CST
Published : Friday, 18 Nov 2011, 8:38 PM CST


MARK BERMAN
Sports Director


Former Rice quarterback Chase Clement is thrilled he will get the chance to work out for the Houston Texans on Monday.

The Texans may be looking for depth at quarterback while they wait to see if Matt Schaub can bounce back from a severe foot injury and play again this season...

I saw this somewhere and I happen to agree...

Thanks, Doc!

Interesting, the timing is about right for the best case scenario!

He's hopeful to get back this season (at least I think that's what he said):

Had some spasms that apparently slowed down rehab:

Not too much else in there regarding the status of his back.

I'll say it's a possibility for him to back up Leinart just in case then!

We'll see!

It does appear that he underwent only minimally invasive surgery, and could theoretically be available very soon if his rehab proceeds favorably.

At this point all you can do is make jokes about our situation. I've been depressed to much in the past about the Texans, so I kind of like feeling upbeat for a change.

If we sign Garrard does that show that we don't have confidence in Leinart or Yates?

This says more about Yates than Leinart in my opinion. You wouldn't want to hand over the keys to Yates this early in his career. This team would be screwed if Yates had to take a significant amount of snaps. I've never been a fan of his dating back to North Carolina, but even if he's improved I don't think he's ready for the role quite yet.
