Jaguars Vs. Texans Update: Houston Takes Early 7-0 Lead

Matt Schaub brought in the first touchdown for the Houston Texans with his feet instead of his arm as a 2-yard run from the quarterback has given the Texans an early 7-0 advantage over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Reliant Stadium.

Schaub is 5-of-7 for 89 yards passing thus far.

The bigger news of the game is on Jacksonville quarterback Blaine Gabbert, as the rookie from Missouri scrambled in the first quarter and as he gave himself up with the slide Texans' linebacker Brian Cushing closed in with a late tackle. Gabbert was replaced by backup quarterback Luke McCown for a few plays, got his ribs taped up and has returned to action.

The two Jaguars quarterbacks have combined to go 1-of-7 for just 12 yards.
