QB Matt Schaub Says He Should be 100 Percent by Training Camp

Thirteen weeks after surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury to his right foot, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub remains on target to be 100 percent by the time training camp opens up in July, Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Schaub suffered the season-ending injury during a quarterback sneak in a November 13 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On that play, 350-pound defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth stepped on Schaub’s foot, dramatically altering the Texans’ season.

“It’s going great,” Schaub said of his rehab. “As of today (yesterday), we’re 13 weeks from surgery, and things are progressing really well. We’re really pleased. I’m a little ahead of the game. It’s a matter of strengthening and making sure everything stays to form in there with the hardware in my foot.”

Robertson adds that Schaub will undergo a follow-up procedure in April that will leave only a tiny screw that will keep his bone and ligament together.

“That’s customary and all the people I’ve talked to who’ve had the surgery told me it’s not a problem,” Schaub said.

Schaub was well on his way towards a third straight 4,000-yard passing season prior to his injury. The 31-year-old is scheduled to make $7.7 million in base salary and roster/workout bonuses in the final season of his contract.
