Schaub expected to play Sunday against Pack

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Texans coach Gary Kubiak says the cold and slippery conditions at Lambeau Field Sunday won't affect his decision on starting quarterback Matt Schaub.

  He's missed four games with a knee injury and is likely to return Sunday.

  Kubiak says if Schaub can play, he will, regardless of the conditions.

  Backup Sage Rosenfels was solid in Schaub's absence Monday night when the Texans beat Jacksonville. But, the Texans' star was rookie running back Steve Slaton.

  He was voted AFC offensive player of the week after rushing for 130 yards and two touchdowns.

  Schaub hopes to use the threat of Slaton's big-play ability to set up the pass.
