Texans Quarterback Matt Schaub Says He'll Be Ready For OTAs, Training Camp

The Houston Texans will start rookie T.J. Yates Sunday afternoon against Baltimore, but their incumbent veteran quarterback told the Texans' official site Saturday evening that he will be ready for the team's OTAs and training camp as he rehabs from a foot injury that ended his 2011 campaign:

Matt Schaub went down in November after a blowout win against the Buccaneers with a Lisfranc injury - and we're glad you asked, because here's everything you'd ever need to know about such an ailment - and will return to a crowded quarterback situation in Houston next season. Backup Matt Leinart was also lost for the season with a shoulder injury, and both will return alongside the rookie Yates and two free agent signees, veterans Jake Delhomme and Jeff Garcia.

It's highly likely Delhomme and Garcia will be cut following the season, but there's a strong chance a quarterback competition could develop between the returning Schaub and the rookie Yates.
