Now Starting For Your Houston Texans - Matt Leinart

The Houston Texans, riding a 4-game win streak into their by week, will trade one QB named Matt for another QB named Matt.

The Texans discovered today that starting quarterback Matt Schaub suffered a season-ending foot injury in the 2nd quarter of the Texans 37-9 win over Tampa Bay -- even though he continued to play.

Matt Leinart, who signed on with the Texans last season, will be the starter against Jacksonville in two weeks. Leinart was drafted 10th overall by Arizona in 2006 and appeared in 12 games as a rookie, throwing 11 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He broke his collarbone in the fifth game of the next season, Kurt Warner took over and Leinart was essentially done as a Cardinal.

Leinart was a 3-year starter for USC, posting 37 wins and was named the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner.

I do seem to remember however, that his college career ended badly for him.
