Matt Schaub: Andre Johnson and I all clear for Texans

We learned last week that Matt Schaub has been cleared for training camp by the Houston Texans.

The quarterback missed his team's final eight games after suffering a foot injury in November. Schaub underwent surgery and was held out of OTAs and minicamp as a precaution, but he's been working with Andre Johnson and other Texans receivers at the University of Houston.

Andre Johnson has long been considered the top WR in the NFL, but Dan Hanzus writes Calvin Johnson has surpassed him at the top. More ...

"I'm 100 percent, ready to go, with no restrictions," Schaub said Monday, via the Houston Chronicle. "Andre looks great. He's also 100 percent and ready to go."

This is great news for the Texans, who were without Schaub, Johnson and running back Arian Foster at various points last season. When The Big 3 is on the field, the Texans can beat opponents in multiple ways.

"Our expectation level is higher than it's ever been, and all of us couldn't be more excited about getting back on the field," Schaub said.

Schaub told the Chronicle he's not worried about entering the final year of his contract, which makes sense. If he can stay healthy and lead the Texans to another AFC South crown, he'll have more leverage than ever.
