Texans | Mathis breaks bone in foot; may miss start of season

Carmine Pirone, of HoustonTexans.com, reports Houston Texans KR/WR Jerome Mathis (foot), who is coming off a Pro Bowl selection as a kick returner, may be forced to miss the start of the 2006 season with a broken bone in his left foot. The operation to fix the injury will take place Friday, June 2, and he will be advised to stay off the foot for about eight weeks. If the foot heals faster than expected, he may return sooner, but the team is making arrangements in case he will not be available. WR Jake Schifino and RB Wali Lundy were given some reps returning kicks in practice Wednesday, May 31, and the team will continue to evaluate possible replacements.
