Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub recently did an interview with Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com and explained how his rehab is progressing after undergoing lisfranc
Schaub explained what he’s been doing around the Texans facility.
“I still come in my same time early in the morning, do my treatment, my rehab that I can for my leg and my foot, and then I’m still in the meetings, still out at practice as if I were playing and doing as much as I can from that standpoint to help T.J. out and to help the other quarterbacks, the new guys that have come in,” said Schaub. “Just rehabbing, and just recently after six weeks of non-weight bearing (activity) with crutches, I’ve been able to walk, so this week has been pretty big just to be able to stand on my foot and put weight on it.”
Schaub is really excited to now be able to walk again.
“Oh, it’s awesome. I can get rid of the crutches and lose the scooter I’ve been riding around and be able to walk, feel a little normal again.”
Schaub has learned to not take things for granted after missing the remainder of the season.
“I think not to take anything for granted. Not that I did, or not that players that get injured do, but you’ve got to embrace every moment you’re out there. You’ve got to take advantage of every opportunity and realize what you have when you have it and not take those things for granted. I’m going to bounce very quickly from this injury and be ready this offseason, but it’s tough to, at the point of the season that we were in, to have to stand on the sideline. But I think that’s one thing I took away.”
Schaub isn’t sure if he’ll be ready for OTA’s, but he’ll definately be 100 percent for training camp.
“It’s going to be a few months here because I’ll have to go in and get some hardware removed out of my foot. I’ll most likely be ready to participate in OTAs, definitely training camp be full-go. But the fact that it’s going to be the offseason, I want to make sure I’m doing it right and not do too much too soon. But it feels great and we’re a couple weeks ahead of schedule, but just need to keep working at it so hopefully this offseason, we’ll be fine.”
