Matt Leinart Injury: Adam Schefter Reports Texans Quarterback Could Be Done For Season

The quarterback woes continue for the Houston Texans who may have lost yet another signal caller to a season ending injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Texans quarterback Matt Leinart could be done for the season after suffering a collarbone injury in the Texans' 20-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. 

Texans QB Matt Leinart, whose left arm was in a sling with a collarbone injury, said there's a "pretty good possibility" his season is over.

Leinart made his first start of the season on Sunday against Jacksonville filling in for Matt Schaub who is also out for the season with a foot injury. Leinart completed 10 of 13 passes for 57 yards including the go ahead touchdown before leaving with the injury. Rookie quarterback T.J. Yates replaced Leinart and successfully managed the game the rest of the way going 8 of 15 for 70 yards. 

Houston leads the AFC South by two games over the Tennessee Titans but may be once again searching for an answer at the quarterback position.
