Quarterback Matt Schaub will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday’s game against St. Louis at Reliant Stadium Texans coach Gary Kubiak said today.
Kubiak ended speculation that Schaub might be replaced by T.J. Yates at his postpractice news conference.
Yates replaced Schaub early in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 34-3 loss at San Francisco where the Texans fell to 2-3 with their third consecutive loss.
After the game and again on Monday Kubiak said Schaub was still his starting quarterback. On Monday Kubiak also said all players including Schaub were being evaluated by the coaching staff.
Schaub has thrown an interception returned for a touchdown in an NFL-record four consecutive games. Counting the playoffs Schaub has been intercepted in eight games in a row.
Schaub is 135-of-212 this year for 1366 yards eight touchdowns and nine interceptions. His QB rating of 76.9 ranks 25th in the league.
