Texans quarterback Matt Schaub hopes he can return this season from a foot injury, though he acknowledges ''it doesn't look good.''
Schaub injured a Lisfranc joint in his right foot in the second quarter of Sunday's 37-9 win in Tampa Bay. He stayed in the game, but only threw three passes in the second half.
Coach Gary Kubiak called the injury ''significant'' and Schaub said on his weekly radio appearance with KILT-AM on Tuesday that his foot ''is not visibly looking too good.'' Schaub said he will meet with more doctors over the next week to gather as much information as possible.
Houston (7-3) has a bye this week. Matt Leinart will start the Texans' next game, at Jacksonville on Nov. 27.
