Update: Adam Schefter reports Matt Schaub is out for the season with a lis franc injury.

A series of tweets from Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com revealed some concerning news for the Houston Texans, who are currently leading the AFC South with a 7-3 record.

The Texans are already without star pass rusher Mario Williams, who was lost to injured reserve and losing starting quarterback Matt Schaub would be an even bigger blow. The Jaguars did a fairly decent job against the Texans pass offense in their week eight loss, but the Houston offense certainly loses a lot of their bite with Leinart at the helm.
