Matt Schaub dismisses Texans fans who cheered injury

Matt Schaub didn't hear the Houston Texans fans who cheered his injury Sunday; he was deafened by the sound his ankle made.

"It popped and must've come out and come back in place," Schaub said Monday on KILT-AM, per the Houston Chronicle. " ... It could have been drastically worse."

The beleaguered quarterback received injections and treatment Monday for his injury and hasn't given up on playing in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

"I'm going to do everything I can to be ready to go," Schaub said.

If Schaub isn't 100 percent, don't expect to see Texans coach Gary Kubiak toss an already immobile quarterback onto the field to face Justin Houston, Tamba Hali and the rest of the NFL's most ferocious defense. Kubiak didn't say Monday whether or not he would start T.J. Yates or Case Keenum if Schaub can't make the start.

As for the injury-cheering fans, Schaub joined the chorus of condemners.

"I hate to think that anyone out there ... whatever the situation is, that people would be that way and act that way," Schaub said. "There's no place for that in this game. There just really isn't."
