Texans | Matt Schaub has significant foot injury

Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub (foot) suffered a significant foot injury in Week 10 and will miss some playing time. Schaub will be wearing a walking boot this week and is scheduled to meet with a foot specialist in the next week. QB Matt Leinart will start in Week 12 in place of Schaub.

Fantasy Tip: Leinart is a backup option if you're desperate or in an extremely deep league, but only because of the quality of the options surrounding him in the offense. Expect Houston to rely more on the running game coming out of their bye week with rushers Arian Foster and Ben Tate. Derrick Ward won't see much work as the third fiddle, thus limiting his fantasy worth. Andre Johnson (hamstring) and Owen Daniels will see a drop in value with Leinart targeting them, but the return of Johnson and Leinart under center is likely to hurt Jacoby Jones the most.
