Texans QB Case Keenum injured, Matt Schaub will start vs. Broncos
Texans interim coach Wade Phillips announced on Wednesday that Matt Schaub will start at quarterback against the Broncos because Case Keenum has ligament damage in his thumb.
Interim coach Wade Phillips announced Wednesday that Keenum won't be able to play in Sunday's home game against the Broncos because of a right thumb injury he suffered in Houston's 25-3 loss to Indianapolis.
Schaub was thrown back into action in a Week 11 home game against the Raiders and things got ugly pretty quickly. The Texans fans at Reliant Stadium booed Schaub so loudly that the Houston's offense had to use a silent count in the second half.
Houston fans also cheered after Schaub injured his ankle in the Rams game.
Phillips doesn't expect to see that against the Broncos, "Our team is 100 percent behind him and I know our real fans are going to be cheering for our team and also for him," Phillips said.
Texans fans might want to cheer for Schaub, just because it might be the final time they see him in a Houston uniform. Sunday's game against Denver will be the Texans final home game of the year and there's a good chance Schaub won't be around when Houston kicks off its 2014 season.
