Found April 15, 2012 on Fox Sports Houston:
Texans quarterback Matt Schaub said Sunday that he has no doubt his injured foot will be completely healed and he will be ready to take full part in practices once training camp begins late in the summer. Schaub is continuing his recovery from a Lisfranc injury he suffered last November. "I had some hardware taken out (of the foot) recently," said Schaub. "That was big for the progress that we're making. With injuries like this where you have pins and screws, they have to come out at some point. It was just a normal procedure where the hardware comes out and you just keep progressing with your rehab." Schaub made his remarks at his annual gala benefitting his Great Hope Foundation. The event raises money for Texas Children's Hospital. "The doctor said it looks great and that everything looks solid in there," said Schaub. While his teammates will begin organized team workouts Monday, Schaub will be limited. He is confident he will be ready by the start of training camp: "I'll be a hundred percent, ready to go." Schaub also discussed the Texans' off-season thus far which has included losing veterans such as Mario Williams, DeMeco Ryans and Eric Winston. Schaub said losing those players is almost a natural progression for a successful team. "When you get to this point as a football team and as an organization," he said. "When you get to the level that we're at and where we were last season, there's a lot guys that are playing at a high level and deserve certain contracts. The salary cap doesn't allow you to (retain all those players). It is the business side of the NFL. "I'm not concerned because we have the right people in the locker room, we have the right guys, we have the right make-up. We have the right staff and front office to lead us to that next step." Schaub and his wife, Laurie, volunteer their time to Texas Children's Hospital in addition to raising funds for the facility. "Laurie and I, our hearts are with children," Schaub said. "Especially ones that have medical needs and concerns. That's where our heart is, especially having three little ones of our own."
