Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub said he didn't hear the fans cheering after his injury Sunday. He was more worried after hearing the sound his ankle made.
"It popped and must've come out and come back in place," Schaub said Monday on KILT-AM. "It could have been drastically worse."
Schaub joined others condemning Houston fans who cheered when the embattled quarterback was hurt and T.J. Yates trotted onto the field to take over.
"I hate to think that anyone out there ... whatever the situation is, that people would be that way and act that way," Schaub said. "There's no place for that in this game. There just really isn't."
Schaub hasn't given up on playing in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
"I'm going to do everything I can to be ready to go," Schaub said.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Monday a decision on Schaub's status will not be made until the end of the week.
Kubiak said Schaub is recovering from injuries to his "leg, ankle, everywhere."
As a result of Schaub's uncertain status, the Texans will prepare two other quarterbacks -- Yates and Case Keenum -- to possibly start against the Chiefs.
