Just two days after being signed by the Houston Texans to a one-year deal, embattled quarterback Matt Leinart successfully completed his first practice Wednesday with his new team.
The Texans of course are hoping that starter Matt Schaub is able to perform at a high level and stay healthy all year. If he does, he’ll certainly be the Texans’ starting quarterback all season long. But if not, Leinart may be a better backup option in Houston than some realize. Only time will tell, but for now, an official welcome to Leinart for finishing his first real day of work with his new teammates and coaches.
