    Matt Schaubalier hurts his ankle running out of bounds? No way. Tell me it ain't so.

    Someone needs to tell him that the key to staying healthy is a nice pair of mittens and the fetal position

    The man injures himself running away from somebody.

    He is Chris Chandler reborn. I love this guys game and I am impressed with his desire to compete and play but we need a QB. Matt is a placeholder who can't stay healthy.

    This is going to be a long and painful season.

    We need a quarterback with David Carr's durability, and Matt Schaub's
    non-suckiness. Draft 2010

    I think you guys are going to far he probaly got a minor tweek but as far as his toughness I think he proved alot tonight . Staying in against that Vikings defense says alot about his passion for the game period . I'm tired of everyone ragging on matt he's a hell of a player and when he plays well every one jumps on the bandwagon

    I think it is fair to say that he is a good player when healthy and has a tendency to miss games because of injury. Since there was no "dirty hit" excuse on this injury, I think that concern over his durability is warranted. This appears minor, but is it a portent of things to come?

    If Matt misses any of the regular season due to this injury, the sky will officially be falling.

    Had it been a regular season game, I think he would have played on the ankle. He looked pretty good in that last series taking us down the field. It was the pre-season, he ended the night well with two positive possessions, there was no reason to put him back in the game.

    Umm... Using $800 words here?

    I think the word "sign" would go well with us common folk. I ain't got no
    degree!

    Well OK, he limped off the field from turning his ankle. But I guess it wasn't noticed that he also limped back on, and took the team downfield ??

    I guess my biggest test this season will be to try to avoid the negative nellies.

    I'll fail it unmiserably.:tease:

    So that is what it means? I thought that's how rednecks pronounced "important".

    Come on Herv, you seem to be really doom and gloom.
    I understand you have your reasons but lets wait for what the Texans show us during the first few games of the regular season!

    We should nickname him saltine, a little twist and all that's left is crumbs.

    Portent is only worth about $125. While "sign" is a synonym, it does not carry the connotations of evil and calamity that portent does. Portent was therefore the more efficient and descriptive word choice.

    Warning or omen may have been good options, although augury would have been even less clear than portent.

    Jaws was wrong. It's not "if" Matt Schaub.

    It's "when" Matt Schaub.

    Nothing to worry about sportsfans, just an ankle sprain. He'll be ready to roll for the Jets.

    He said the rubber out of bounds caught his foot and he tweaked the ankle. Doesn't sound serious but also doesn't make you feel good when part of the sidelines is hurting you.

    Every ding Schaub has this year will necessitate the sky falling crowd to come out of the woodwork with the torches, pitchforks and AK-47s.

    I thought the guy diving at his feet caught the back of his leg, but my angle was skewed.

    and I don't get it. other NFL qb's lost time the past two years and there isn't the same talk of fragility.

    I guess I expect more of our fans to not listen to the reporters copy and paste stories, than to fall in line with this crap.
