This Given Sunday:
In his Monday presser, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak dropped a bombshell that gave any Texans fan that familiar sinking feeling in the pit of their stomachs. Starting quarterback, Matt Schaub, will miss "some time" with what Kubiak calls a "significant foot injury."
Now, before you start scrambling to find out who the next man up is in Houston, I'll save you some time. The news means that Matt Leinart. While Leinart is what I would describe as a "capable" backup, he's certainly not Matt Schaub, and the Texans will likely rely even more heavily on Arian Foster for offensive production.
The news gives new life for the Tennessee Titans and even the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both of those teams are chasing the Texans, and they've both already lost once to the Texans this season. Here's how the AFC South stacks up right now:

The Houston Texans are the best team in the AFC. That's at least what their record says, as Houston and Pittsburgh have the conference's best record at 7-3. However, they're about to be tested by injury. Texans coach Gary Kubiak informed reporters on Monday that quarterback Matt Schaub has suffered a "significant" foot injury.

What are some of the big questions heading into this week in the NFL?
1. Can Matt Leinart save the Texans’ season?
You almost have...
Matt Schaub threw for two long touchdowns, while Arian Foster, Ben Tate and Derrick Ward each ran for scores Sunday to help the AFC South-leading Houston Texans rout the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 37-9.
The elation of Sunday’s dominant win over the Bucs didn’t last very long, did it? All our hearts sank when we heard Monday’s news that Matt Schaub had suffered a “significant foot injury” that will in all likelihood turn out to be a season-ender.
My initial thought, of course, was that the season was all but over – but like usual, in the short-term I overreacted a bit...
