The Houston Texans offense is as dynamic as any in the NFL. When the running tandem of Arian Foster and Ben Tate are able to create room for Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson to connect, it’s an offense that can move the chains on any down they desire, it seems. But Matt Schaub is at the center of it all and much of the Texans’ offseason attention is on his Lisfranc injury and the rehab to get through it.
Schaub, for his part, says he’s showing up every morning this offseason to do what it takes to get ready for the season.
“Those guys all do a phenomenal job,” Schaub said of the training staff. “All the things they have to deal with on a day-to-day basis in the season and now in the offseason, having to deal with all the guys that are rehabbing little nicks and bruises or surgeries and whatnot, just to get us ready for OTAs and training camp, it’s a year-round thing for them. They do a great job of putting together our rehab plans and getting us back healthy.”
“I’m here every day, working out, working on my foot and just rehabbing everything,” Schaub continues “Everything’s going real well. I’m here each day ‘til about noon, and then my offseason consists of taking care of my kids and being over there with the family. So that’s the fun part.”
Last year, the Texans became the new power in the AFC South and the Colts and Jaguars seem a long way from being a threat to that with new quarterbacks under center. The Titans also need some work, and it’s clear the Texans could be the class of the division for some time. Schaub needs to be healthy enough to take them to the next level.

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:
Schaub: "I’ve never been more excited for OTAs and training camp ever in my life. I’ll be counting the days." #Texans— Nick Scurfield (@NickScurfield) January 14, 2012
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.
