He spent time teaching line dancing to some of his future teammates in the Dominican Republic.

Houston Texans

  • Matt Harvey (Houston Chronicle) on the Matt Schaub era in Houston.

Matt Schaub’s era as the Texans’ starting quarterback might not be finished. But it feels like it. Coach Gary Kubiak wasn’t definitive Monday, saying his announcement Case Keenum will start Sunday night at Reliant Stadium against Indianapolis is “a decision for this week.”
