Texans coach Gary Kubiak faced the big question after Wednesday's practice he's probably asked himself several times over the past few days. How's this going to work? Rookie quarterback T.J. Yates and rusty veterans Jake Delhomme and Kellen Clemens shared snaps for the Texans (8-3) as they scrambled to prepare for Sunday's game against Atlanta (7-4). Yates, a fifth-round pick out of North Carolina, will start. Houston is virtually starting from scratch after season-ending injuries to quarterbacks Matt Schaub (broken right foot) and Matt Leinart (broken left collarbone) in consecutive games. Kubiak says the situation is ''interesting,'' and something he never faced, even as an offensive coordinator earlier in his career. But he says the team remains upbeat and confident it can continue winning.
