With quarterback Matt Schaub on injured reserve and out of the equation, backup Matt Leinart received a shot at resurrecting his career with the Texans.
Unfortunately, his fifteen minutes in the sun only lasted a half, and now appears ready to join Schaub on the shelf.

Leinart was knocked out of the game shortly before the second quarter concluded with a left clavicle injury.
