The Texans roster just got a little slimmer.

Yesterday head coach Gary Kubiak announced he released linebacker Tim Dobbins. That leaves four roster spots he now has to fill.

Good news for quarterback Matt Schaub. He was spotted back on the practice field yesterday and it looked like he was moving around well.

He should be back as the starter against the Colts in two weeks. Arian Foster also says he'll be ready to go. The team has the rest of the week off to heal up.
