In Jax, it's Grossman's turn

Rex Grossman is in at quarterback for the Texans in Jacksonville after Matt Schaub suffered a left shoulder injury on a sack by Derrick Harvey.

For all of the Texans' troubles this season, one issue coming into the year had not surfaced for them: Schaub’s health.

But now what’s left of their playoff hopes may rest with Grossman, who was expected to be the third quarterback behind Schaub and Dan Orlovsky when he signed, but worked his way ahead of Orlovsky with his preseason performance.

Now we’ll see what the former Bear has left. Jacksonville has to be pleased it’s not facing Schaub any longer.

[UPDATE: Schaub returned in the second quarter.]
