Texans QB Matt Schaub is out with a left shoulder injury, the team announced, and his return to Sunday’s game against the Jaguars is questionable.
Among the 22 players released by the Texans today was 10th-year veteran CB Deltha O’Neal — which is notable because Dunta Robinson continues to hold out after being made the team’s franchise player, depleting the depth in the secondary.

Three seasons after starting the Super Bowl for the Chicago Bears, Rex Grossman looks as if he will compete for the No. 2 quarterback job in Houston.
A pair of backups with starting experience — Chris Simms and Rex Grossman — are making their free agent visits.
Don’t expect Chicago to cry over the departure of quarterback Rex Grossman.

A handful of high-profile quarterbacks are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents. Other well-known quarterbacks could be traded. Another talented but troubled one could be reinstated. All together, the collection of quarterbacks is going to create one of the most fascinating off-seasons in NFL history.
The Bears have pulled Kyle Orton in favor of Rex Grossman in what’s become a blowout in Green Bay. Orton finished with 148 yards, no touchdowns and one lost fumble. He has another very tough matchup next week in Minnesota.
