HOUSTON (AP) -Houston's Matt Schaub will not start Sunday's game against Oakland after suffering a concussion from a helmet-to-helmet hit last week in San Diego.
With Schaub out, the Texans will go with Sage Rosenfels. It will be the third start of his career and his first since a 22-0 loss to Cleveland in 2005 when he was with Miami.
Rosenfels has played most of the second half of each of the last two games with Schaub injured and has thrown five interceptions and five touchdowns.
Schaub was injured on an illegal hit by Drayton Florence after throwing his second interception in Houston's loss to the Chargers. It was the second straight week he'd been knocked out of the game by a helmet-to-helmet blow. He injured his hip on the first one, but has recovered from that injury.
Craig Nall, who was signed on Tuesday, will be Houston's backup. Coach Gary Kubiak said Schaub could be used as Houston's emergency quarterback if necessary.
