"Everything I'm being told is we're still evaluating the injury," Kubiak told reporters Tuesday, per the team's official website. "That's going to go on for probably about a week, and then at some point next week, we'll know whether he has a chance to come back or he doesn't."
Kubiak already has ruled out Schaub for the Texans' next game -- following their bye against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12 -- but clearly the team is holding out hope the quarterback can play again this season. NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported the Texanswill exhaust all possibilities before making a decision to place Schaub on season-ending injured reserve.
"There's a lot of things reported," Kubiak said Monday. "He's going to be in a boot throughout this week, and then the evaluation process will continue."
