Backup QB Leinart Released

Backup QB Matt Leinart is being released from the Texans.

He had inked a two-year deal last July with Houston for $5.5 million to backup Matt Schaub, but then when he got his chance after Schaub went down, he broke his collarbone in his first start.

The 28-year-old was due $1.75 million in base salary in 2012. T.J. Yates, who played well as the Texans starter once Leinart went down, will backup Schaub in 2012.
