Nick Scurfield of the Texans official website reports that Matt Schaub (knee) returned to practice on Thursday and is expected to start against the Jets.
He was in the hospital on Wednesday due to a bursa sac issue in his right knee.
“It was good to have him back,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “He took probably about half the reps today, feeling a lot better, and we’re heading in the right direction. Like I said, we expected him to get out last night, and he did. Everything that we thought would happen today happened.”
Schaub is coming off a solid game against the Jaguars, but this week’s matchup against the Jets is far more formidable — their defense has given up 13 or fewer fantasy points to two of the last three quarterbacks they have faced, one of which was Aaron Rodgers.
What’s more, Schaub was held to a mere 166 passing yards with no touchdowns and one interception in his last start against the Men in Green.
