    All kinds of things factor into injuries and bad luck is one of them.

    No matter what you think of Matt Schaub going down again, it unfortunate for him and for the Texans. The loss to Minnesota that cost them their chance to be 4-4 was bad. The loss of Schaub -- for at least two weeks and possibly four -- again puts the offensive continuity the team believes it had begun to forge on hold.

    Yes, the Texans were 4-1 in the games Sage Rosenfels started for the injured Schaub last year. But Rosenfels couldn't finish what he started in a loss to Indianapolis this season, when he started for an ill Schaub, overextended himself late trying to finish off the upset. Sunday, Schaub fared poorly protecting the ball with an interception and a lost fumble. In relief, Rosenfels threw a bad pick into the end zone.

    He may do well with however many starts he gets as Schaub rehabilitates his knee.

    But no matter how he does, it's another setback for a team that's firmly behind Schaub and would like to get a full season out of him in order to have a chance to show off just what it thinks it's got.
