    If I have learned anything about Kubiak since he's become our HC, its not to listen to ANYTHING he says regarding injury expectations. If he's saying he expects him full speed in May then that probably means he expects him to start jogging in August.

    I pray that he's actually being upfront this one time though and Schaub really is full speed by that time. Hell, I'd even settle for July. Its not like he needs the OTA work. Let Yates take 1st team work all off-season and just focus on getting Matt ready for Training Camp.

    Great news, so he'll be back to his blistering 5.3 40 yard dash!?!?!?!?!?

    Just kidding Schaubby, you'd still beat me in a foot race, but just barely!

    Watch Matt.... Matt Leinart. If we release Leinart to create cap space, then Kubiak believes (in his heart-of-hearts) that Schaub will be ready to go in May.

    If Matt Leinart sticks around, then Kubiak doesn't know any better than we do.

    I hope so, given the number of athletes that never really did recover from a Linsfranc injury. Also, if this is true, it would be one of the fastest re-habs in the injury's history...

    Yeah, TB, no BS.

    Don't see it happening. Hope I'm wrong along with Doctor Jean and Marcus/David.

    Medical marvel/miracle from what I'm understanding.

    A round of golf anyone?

    Different kind of injury. There has been examples of people recovering from a broken fibula in 4 weeks. Most recently Danieal Manning.

    Schaub's injury, not so much. Most guys don't make it to 100% from a serious Lisfranc

    Ringing endorsement that Matt Schaub is his guy.

    ps: if Texans release Matt Leinart that also means TJ Yates is #2

    Houston, again.
    IMO, very good news. However, I would feel a LOT better if the team had a better track record with being more forthcoming on the true nature of the injuries and the recoveries from them.

    This is exactly what I was thinking. Its kind of hard to get excited with news from this crew. On one hand I appreciate them not being the doom and gloom type, but knowing that they base most of the info they release on "hopes" and not reality doesn't lead me to feel overtly excited right now.

    Did you know that Dwight Freeney had a lisfranc injury in 2007? True story. Heard he still plays too.

    That was last years injury. Briesel also went IR year before with the same kind of injury Schaub suffered in 2011.

    I think Yates is #2 either way. I wouldn't start him unless I thought he was ready, & from what I saw last year we haven't got there yet.

    If the realistic expectation is that Schaub is going to start week 1, then we have no use for Leinart. If there is any question, Leinart stays just in case.

    What grade was it?

    Brady Quinn had it, too, in December 2009, but it was (IIRC) not his plant foot and not as severe of an injury as Schaub's.

    Is it apples to apples comparison?

    Leinart broke the same clavicle vs. Jags that he had broken previously when he was with the Cards. He could be a camp release based on the probability of injury reoccurrence AND lackluster performance versus Jags.

    Truth be known, as much as I dislike Michael Lombardi, he was likely right when he said no Texans fans needed to be dismayed by Leinart being I.R.'d and Yates taking over in Jags game.

    I expect Leinart will be in camp, but so will 3 or 4 other QBs, and Leinart will eventually get cut deep enough into camp or preseason to avoid Leinart and his agent and lawyers from claiming he was cut due to injury.

    Frankly, I would rather watch old geezers Delhomme (whom might not be interested) and Garcia get a nod ahead of Leinart. There's something with Leinart that just feels "off."

    this thread title may send this new strange anti-Schaub bunch into a panic. Could we find a better way to help lift their spirits than this?

    According to this article it was - Grade III sprain: Complete disruption of ligament; could include a fracture dislocation.
