Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak confirmed Monday that quarterback Matt Leinart fractured his collarbone and will need surgery.
It came as no surprise that Texans coach Gary Kubiak confirmed quarterback Matt Leinart will miss the rest of the season during his Monday press conference. Everyone knew that was coming. They also know that the Texans are down to T.J. Yates and Kellen Clemens at quarterback, leaving themselves awfully short at an awfully important…
Gary Kubiak's voice sounded defeated, deflated on the phone from Jacksonville, where his team had just defeated the Jaguars with a heavy heart. For the final 31 minutes of the 20-13 victory, the Texans' quarterback was rookie T.J. Yates, playing his first NFL game. The backup quarterback: tight end Owen Daniels.
