Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub told that he’s been able to get together with some of his wide receivers and throw the ball around while they wait for training camp to open up at the end of next month.

“We found a field to go use to be able to throw and keep up with things, especially with the young guys, with all the young receivers and tight ends and guys that we have,” Schaub said. “I wanted to just get with them because missing OTAs, I missed those reps that I was getting with those guys and am just trying to bring them up to speed, get ready for training camp and throwing with Andre (Johnson) and some of the other guys. Just stuff that we can do to continue to stay sharp ‘til camp.”

Schaub expects all of the receivers to show up by next week.

“We’ve had a handful of guys,” Schaub said. “Right now, the rookies are at the symposium, the drafted guys. Come next week, I expect all them to be out there. Andre’s been out there and a few other veterans. Right now, some of them have taken a little break, but we’ll come back here next week or just after the Fourth so we’ll have three good weeks after that to really get after it.”

It’s great for Schaub to be able to work out with his guys, since he missed OTA’s and minicamp while recovering from Lisfranc surgery.

“It’s huge, especially not going through OTAs,” Schaub said. “You know, I was doing stuff on the other side of the field with the trainers, with Roland (Ramirez) and Geoff (Kaplan) and those guys, but to actually be doing it with my teammates, throwing to them and everything, that’s just huge. It’s simulating game reps and stuff that we’ll do in practice. So, anything I can do to continue to progress and do what I have to do physically throughout the course of a training camp practice and such to be ready to go is what I want to do right now. There’s no vacation time for me.”


Matt Schaub expected to be cleared for training camp

Getty Images According to Nick Scurfield of, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub will be visiting Charlotte, NC in less than two weeks, and is expected to be fully cleared by Dr. Robert Anderson in order to participate in training camp. “I think we all expect Matt to be out there the 1st day of training camp without any issues,” said Texans trainer Geoff Kaplan.
